If I recall, we had to prove to the school that we had been vaccinated before enrolling back in the 80s, and I had to prove that I’d been vaccinated for at lesat mumps measls and rubella before entering college. Unvaccinated children are a risk to everyone around them, there’s no reason that the public school system SHOULDN’t require vaccinations before students can enter.

@bella128:  My son has had to have his vaccinations and a regular dental check up before school every year. It’s irresponsible IMO to not get your child vaccinated. I think you should educate yourself of course, but not doing it is a bigger risk then doing it. People who don’t vaccinate their kids make me ragey in the worst way.

@bella128:  I think it’s good!

Sure, you have the option to vaccinate your kids, you also have the option to homeschool!

I figured parents still had to submit all of the vaccination proof for their children just as they had to when I was a kid in the 80s. Had that stopped being enforced for a while or something? How have the unvaccinated children gotten into school to begin with?

It’s about time they start enforcing it.  Wakefield’s work was rubbish.  I can’t believe people still buy into it.

There are parents that get to opp out for relgious reasons (I can’t remember what religions, but there are some.)  That’s protected under the consitution due to seperation of church and state.  I don’t agree with not getting your kid vaccinated, though.  Everything about the anti-vaccine crusade has been proven to be a giant scam and possibly the most hurtful for public house since snake oil salesman was a thing.

Thank goodness! I encountered 2 kids in the hospital last year with freaking pertussis. Pertussis! I remember when you couldn’t get into school without being vaccinated (80’s). If your religion didn’t allow it, oh well, you weren’t going to public school.

This has been the rule at every school I attended throughout my childhood and teenhood.

In NY and Vermont you can’t walk to close to a school without being vaccinated! (Thank GOODNESS)

But Mass is a very different story! At least in early childhood education (you know, when they NEED VACCINES THE MOST)

This may be a dumb question but, how are un-vaccinated children putting other kids at risk, if the other kids are vaccinated?  Like, if a kid gets the measles, aren’t the other kids immune to it since they’ve been vaccinated?

@BrandNewBride:  My mom is a principal at an elementary school in MA and the district often looks the other way (in their words) to not piss off anti-vaccination parents. It’s RIDICULOUS and so angry-making. My mom has been working in public education in MA since the 1970s and she can’t figure out why now, all of a sudden, public health is no big deal!

@Kings7911:  Because not all kids CAN get vaccines and not just because their parents believe Jenny McCarthy. 

My hairdresser’s son currently has Pertussis.  Freaking whooping cough.  He has an auto-immune disorder that caused him to reject all his vaccines – he got them all as a kid.  Her other son had a life-threatening reaction to a couple so she stopped vaccinating him at some point, but she had him tested and he has antibodies for everything.

@Misswhowedding:  It’s not all BS why some kids aren’t getting vaccinations.  There are actual medical contraindiations to it.  It would be discriminatory to not allow these people to attend school.  It’s not irresponsible for them to not be vaccinated, it would be irresponsible for them to get all of the vaccines!
