It’s a problem on left + right sides of the political aisle. Don’t-trust-doctors-government-pharma-etc is common all across the spectrum. That said I’m pro-vaccination most of the time in most situations. Anti-vax is only possible now because high success rate of vaccines at eliminating most of the baddies makes everything feel safe enough not to feel its necessary. Should safety tests be done periodically? Sure. But there’s decades of data already to go through so it shouldn’t be hard. Strict records have been kept for a LONG time.

BUT: I don’t think anti-vax should disqualify a parent… as if there’s such a thing as disqualifying parents from being parents (crimes are exceptions I know).

However being barred from public school? I’m ok with that because kids share stuff, knowing or unknowingly, and a mutated thing that was vaccinated against can render current vaccines useless leading to a major public health crisis, bring us back to the early 20th century in public health.===
