It's 100% personal choice. Not even healthcare workers "have" to get immunizations. They can strongly recommend, but can't require.

where did you come up with this idea. First off, what does being on government assistance have to do with it. Second, you cant require anyone to get vaccines. anyone can get a waiver. third, I wouldnt deny a child food because the parent didnt get a damn vaccine. 

I've never seen so many people willing to allow the government to have so much control until I came to CM!

Is this your thoughts on it?, or is someone somewhere trying to mandate it?

No. It should be left up to each person and each family.

Sadly I wish this was true. If someone can provide laws for California proving this I would be excited. I am in nursing school and fighting hard to avoid vaccines. So far my titers have been enough and I have a latex allergy and that has gotten me out of the flu shot. Not sure what happens next :(

that makes no sense-spend more tax payer money on vaccines????  If you get sick, you stay away from babies-the end!!!

You can sign a waiver. I worked in a nursing home for years & that's what they did there. Of course they would try to talk you into having the vaccine though.
Maybe law varies by state though.

Vaccinations do not prevent a disease, for one. Secondly, just because someone is "protected" does not mean they can't pass on an illness to a newborn or young child. So the entire argument is completely invalid.

I volunteer to save lives; What do you do?

It's a personal choice. If they did that they would have to make everyone one do it.
