Vaccination Poll

Most Americans Think Unvaccinated Children Should Be Banned From Schools

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate — that is the eternal parenting question. But there may be a new issue for parents to argue about when it comes to the vaccination debate. A recent Reason-Rupe poll found that 52 percent of Americans believe children who are not vaccinated should be banned from public schools, as they put their peers at risk. Similarly, 60 percent of participants believe vaccinations should be required for childhood diseases like measles, mumps, and whooping cough. The overwhelming (and somewhat surprising) support for vaccines may be related to a recent statement from the RAND Corporation, which assured people that there was no link between vaccinations and autism. Where do you stand when it comes to vaccinations and school attendance? Let us know by voting in the poll and weighing in on the comment section below.
