house Bill H.R. 2527

Should School-Aged Children Be Required to Receive Vaccinations?

Argument in favor

Personal exemptions from vaccination requirements are causing decreased vaccination rates in some parts of the country, creating risk for students and immunocompromised individuals. This is a public health crisis in the making and should be headed off by requiring public school students’ immunization as a condition of their attendance in public schools.

Medical exemptions should be the ONLY kind of exemptions. Public health is more important than the irrational fear mongering of the pro-plague cult.

Argument opposed

Personal exemptions from vaccine requirements recognize that personal beliefs are a valid rationale for parents’ health decisions. Eliminating these exemptions would be a violation of personal choice.

No! This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of!😖 many people get reactions from vaccines. The parents get to decide, not the government. 🙄 the government needs to stay out of our lives as much as possible. When I received my vaccinations as a baby, I started getting croup. NOT FUN. I had to go to the hospital 3 times because I couldn’t breathe. This is a bad idea! 🤯👎💉

Democrats want to be free to make their own healthcare decisions about their body. But they don’t want you to be.

    Unvaccinated children are a threat to their own health, but also to the health of all the children and teachers around them! Vaccinate your kids! Medical reasons are the only sensible exception. You might as well put a tinfoil hat on if you believe vaccines cause autism.

    We should usually respect parental medical choices for children, unless they are not in the best interest of the child (the unvaccinated child has medical issues and can’t/shouldn’t be vaccinated) or can negatively impact others not actively involved in making that decision. The medical and scientific consensus is that the risks of vaccinating are significantly smaller than the risks of not vaccinating. Therefore, those that do not vaccinate are choosing the larger risk: an unreasonable choice. Since negligence was created specifically to compensate those harmed because of another’s unreasonable choice, the conditions of liability also apply. Several studies have shown that unvaccinated children are at increased risk of vaccine preventable diseases, and therefore more likely to transmit those diseases and cause others harm. If parents are not held responsible when their unvaccinated child infects another, they may not consider those costs when deciding whether or not to vaccinate. However, assigning liability in these cases will encourage parents to include those costs into their calculation.

    Yes.. if you want your child to attend public schools the they have to be vaccinated. End of story. Unless there is a medical issue that keeps the child from being vaccinated then vaccinations are required. I’m not big on the idea of children making other children ill with a deadly disease just because some granola munching mom who thinks she knows better than the entire medical community of this planet is stupid and shouldn’t be breeding anyway.

    This is one of the few healthcare issues that actually affect people outside the individual receiving it. While stripping people with uteruses of their bodily autonomy to “protect children” actually will end lives, vaccinating the actual children that are alive can stay that way by preventing the spread of disease. Anyone who doesn’t want to do so shouldn’t be allowed to let their child around other children because they’re too stubborn to protect them from infectious disease.

    While I do not condone dictating to parents, I do believe that if the parents want their children to attend public schools, this should be a requirement. The greater good for all should be the priority.

    Even though vaccines have been deemed safe there are still risks listed on the vaccine inserts just as with any medical intervention. And some children are more susceptible to adverse reactions than others, so no one should be forced into a medical procedure.

    We don't need the government making decisions for us. Leave the decision in the parents' hands. It is our right as free citizens to choose what happens to our bodies.

    Vaccines don’t prevent illness. If they were safe the government wouldn’t have set up a vaccine injury compensation fund which has paid out 4 billion as of this year to injury and death because of vaccines.

    If the vaccine works properly for you, then it shouldn’t matter what others do. It’s wrong to force someone to take a potentially dangerous action (many kids have taken ill and died after getting shots) because you’re afraid.

    If vaccines actually work, vaccinated kids have nothing to worry about.

    Vaccines are a medical procedure which must allow for informed consent and the right to refuse treatment. There have been no independent studies proving that they are safe, especially when given at the same time as several other vaccines. Vaccine manufacturers are immune from any sort of liability so there are no motives for them to ensure safety.

    Here we go again. The ignorance of the few shouldn’t outweigh the safety of the majority. You chose not to vaccinate your children you should be brought up on child endangerment charges for not protecting everyone’s children. Unless there overwhelming evidence that vaccinating would cause harm to the child.
