Your 2 Cents: Lawmaker Wants Parents To Vaccinate Kids Before School

A State Senator plans to file a bill requiring parents to vaccinate their children if they go to public, private or parochial schools in Oklahoma, philosophical or religious exemptions would be eliminated.

I agree, and so does the American Medical Association, here's what you had to say, Teresa first: "Too many have forgotten childhood epidemics that have been eradicated by immunizations."

Amber from Midwest City adds: "If you don't want to vacc home school your kids."

But Amibeth in Piedmont writes: "Up to the parents of the child.."

Teresa says: "The only kids in danger are those without. Vaccinate you children."

But Kim in Stillwater adds: "And people like me with a compromised immune system."

JC in Bethany writes: "there's not one shred ounce of proof that a vaccination has kept a child or adult from catching anything."

But Mike argues: "you don't have the right to put other children and grownups at risk because you refuse to listen to science. And science has clearly spoken on this issue."

Finally, Christa is really putting it out there: "How the heck is your choice more important than my child's life? Don't give me your government conspiracy theory crap.

People have forgotten what real disease looks like. Keep your child out of daycare, and out of public to not expose my child to your "choice."
