Talk about Vaccines

PART 1 QUESTIONS

Let’s talk about Vaccines. In the early 20th-Century, they were viewed as a “miracle of science”. But now at the beginning of the 21st-Century, they have become very controversial.

– Why is this an issue?
– What are the arguments for/against mandatory vaccines?
– Should people be allowed to opt out, and under what circumstances?

Many schools require vaccines for students to attend, and even some countries require proof of vaccination.

– Are these organizations overstepping their authority, or is this really for the public health good? Please cite your sources, even if it’s an example of bad information.
