One of the biggest debates right now is whether or not a parent should vaccinate their kids. There is currently an outbreak of measles across the country. Just in 2019, there have been 764 cases. This is the highest that it has been in 25 years. NYC has even declared a state of emergency and has cited 84 people for refusing to vaccinate themselves or their kids. They are fining people $1000 and up to $2000 if they do not show up to court. The community that is mainly the cause of the rapid and uncontrollable spread is the ultra-orthodox Jews.
On a less serious note, it is not just measles that people refuse vaccinations. There are so many other diseases out there that are being spread from lack of public knowledge or their "over" knowledge. Here is a website where the mom talks about her reasons on why she hasn't vaccinated her child https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-11532/8-reasons-i-havent-vaccinated-my-daughter.html . Take a minute to read her reasons and think to yourself, is that logical?
I personally think that kids should be vaccinated. I have been vaccinated for everything, except the flu a couple years. What do you think? Should schools ban kids who aren't vaccinated? Is religion a good reason to refuse? Is it too extreme to be charging people who refuse?
