I'm of two minds for this one. First there is the common sense/no-brainer mind. Of course we should have the kids vaccinated, especially in light of how the Disneyland measles outbreak was bungled last year. Imagining that running through our schools would have been nightmarish, let alone any other major communicable disease. I don't even want to think about it. Playing devil's advocate to that, I can also see the parents' rights side of this, and how it should be up to them to parent their children. However, when it comes to communicable diseases, those diseases do not know any borders: parental, human, or otherwise. Some could also claim religious beliefs in this as well, which would pit the 1A against the "provide for the common defense" and "promote the general welfare" clauses of the Preamble to the Constitution. If someone lives/dies by those beliefs (no pun intended), I could see this reaching SCOTUS, even despite Jacobson v. Massachusetts touching this very issue. It is one thing, like in Jacobsen where a state orders vaccination because of an impending outbreak or an outbreak already occurring; it is another to have it codified into law for a public, taxpayer funded school district to do the same. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...-remove-vaccine-exemptions-for-schoolchildren Like I said, I see both sides in this.
