New York Suburb Declares Measles Emergency, Barring Unvaccinated Children From Public

Anti-vaccination adherents are fucking morons. I want the government to immunize every person forcefully. You can't yell "fire" in a public space. You shouldn't be able to enter any public area without being vaccinated. If visitors to the USA are required to be vaccinated, then I see no reason why US citizens are excluded from the requirement. Require proof of vaccination for the issuance of a drivers license and passport.

Lawrence O. Gostin, a professor of global health law at Georgetown University, said he found Rockland County’s emergency order deeply problematic.

He said he is a longtime proponent of making vaccines compulsory for children to attend schools, but questioned whether the order is constitutional.

“This is virtually imprisonment of a child, and certainly significantly restricting the child’s liberty,” Mr. Gostin said.

And if it was an outbreak of Ebola what would this fucking moron say?
