West Virginia is one of only three states that does not allow parents to opt out of mandatory vaccinations for children attending school.
When there is a danger of injury, there must be freedom of choice. Would you be comfortable with your doctor if he or she made it mandatory for you to accept their suggestions for any medicine, test, or procedure that he or she recommended? In the same light, parents must be free to make informed choices based on the potential risks versus the benefits of any given vaccine.
Vaccines are not held to the same standards as other drugs that are on the market. There are no tests done versus placebos. Testing is often done by the same companies that make the vaccines. Why is this allowed? Vaccines are recommended for age groups for which they have never been tested.
