  •  VERY few people die because of vaccination. (4+ / 0-)

    Much fewer than would die as a direct result of the policy of allowing people to opt out for no real valid reason (which is what you're advocating).

    Let's be clear: from a risk perspective, there is no valid argument against most vaccination if you don't have medical contraindications. Of course there is a slight risk, but it's not even close to the risk to you personally from getting an infectious disease. Especially since under your policy infectious diseases would be much more prevalent than they are now. You can't just say your risk of ID is negligible, so it's not a problem, because they wouldn't be negligible without vaccination of most people.
