Here again is the government, deciding what's best for you. Flu shots are now mandatory for New Jersey preschoolers. Now, I'm not anti-vaccine. I've gotten every one available for Ace thus far, including the rotavirus vaccine. I'm not anti-anti-vaccine - if you don't want to vaccinate your child, that is just fine by me. This rule makes no sense.
If you don't want to vaccinate your child, you know that you're taking a risk that your child will get sick with the diseases against which he or she can be vaccinated. That's a risk you're willing to take, given the risks of vaccines. If you do want to vaccinate your child, you know that your child is mostly protected against the diseases against which he or she is vaccinated.
So... who is it that wants mandatory vaccinations? Ohhh, that's right. The gummint. They know all.
Ron Paul thinks this is bull, thinks you should decide what you do and don't put in your child, and raised a record-breaking 6 million dollars and some change yesterday. The previous record-holder for one-day fund raising was John Kerry, and that was when he'd basically already won the Democratic nomination. Ron Paul is better than your candidate of choice, if, in fact, your candidate of choice isn't Ron Paul.
