Vaccination Argument Paper

Should parents be able to opt out of Vaccinations?

My Opinion

I say that parents shouldn't be able to opt out because not only does it put their children in danger it puts the kids around them in danger to. It makes a gap in Group immunity and can make other children sick making this an epidemic?

The Facts

Other parents are afraid that it could lead to lots of other medical issues like autism, Since there is a very slim chance you could get these in vaccinations.
