Should Parents Face Jail Time for Not Vaccinating Kids?

After realizing that more than 2,000 students in a Maryland county still didn’t have the vaccinations they were supposed to have before attending class, a judge ordered parents to appear at the courthouse to either get their children vaccinated on the spot or risk up to ten days in jail. They could also provide proof of vaccination or an explanation of why their kids didn’t have them.

Seems rather harsh to me, especially since most of the parents had gotten their kids vaccinated but claim the school lost the records. What do you guys think — should parents face jail time for not vaccinating their children?
