Many believe vaccines have been incredibly successful in eradicating and preventing deadly diseases. Most doctors agree that if your body can tolerate vaccines, and you are not on the Centers for Disease Control's list of those who should not get a particular vaccine, then it's a good idea to get them.
CDC indicates that, when it comes to vaccination, the calculation is different depending on the individual and the vaccine involved since not all vaccines are equally safe, necessary or tolerated by a given child or adult.
So should the government force you or your child to vaccinate? If so, with which vaccines-- and when? After all, some vaccines have been pulled off the market for safety reasons. The government has paid damages in cases of children getting overloaded with too many vaccines at once. And some individuals have adverse reactions with no advance warning.
In the article, "Should we panic over measles outbreaks?" Dr. Jane Orient explores the idea of vaccine mandates and how, she says, implementing them will only hurt the public's trust in physicians and health organizations.

In general, it is not a good idea to panic about anything. The panic itself often causes more harm than the original threat.
Crisis situations, real or contrived, lead to new intrusive laws the public would never accept otherwise. We supposedly cherish freedom, but if we believe that the world will end if we don’t act NOW, then we may clamor for the government to save us. Cynical politicians bent on increasing their power never let a crisis go to waste.
Something like the Green New Deal – the end of our comfortable, prosperous lifestyle – takes a truly apocalyptic threat. But to eliminate our freedom to decline a medical treatment, the threat that “millions will die” of measles is evidently enough. Or if not millions (most older people had measles and recovered fully), a few especially vulnerable children, who can’t be vaccinated themselves, might catch measles and die.
There are several hundred cases of measles nationwide, more than in 2014, and bills are being pushed through state legislatures to eliminate all but very narrow exemptions to the 60 shots now mandated for school attendance.
In New York City, people are receiving summonses based on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s emergency order. Everybody, adult or child, who lives in four ZIP code areas must get an MMR shot or prove immunity, or face the prospect of a $1,000 fine ($2,000 if you don’t appear as ordered). Your religious exemption is overridden. The threat of six months in prison and the prospect of forcible vaccination were removed before a hearing on a lawsuit brought by five mothers. The judge dismissed the case.
