    Default With vaccination rates stable, ‘no jab, no play’ rules are beside the point

    I agree with the conclusion:

    As for the parents who actively decline vaccines, they do so out of a desire to do the right thing by their children. These parents may be genuinely misguided about vaccination, but they are not wilfully selfish. For them – and the vaccine-hesitant parents – listening, respectful communication, and quality information are more likely to win them over than castigation and coercion.

    I vaccinate my child but I haven't always done so. I guess it would be hard to understand for people who come from a different community than I do. Everyone does what they think is best. The conclusion is spot on. I don't think any parent makes a choice being purposely ignorant. You do what you know and when you know differently, you do differently.

    The research I did took me in a different direction. While I agree about herd immunity and keeping society healthy as a whole, segregation and banning is not going to help.

    The things that did help were time and understanding. My doctor was great and not pushy at all. They people that were pushy forced me to shut off from them. I'd like to see more in depth information on government websites and a more effective public campaign that doesn't make people feel on the outside. You can't force people to do anything. Just offer the evidence and let them decide. It has already been proven that a paternalistic approach to health does not work and people should be seen as autonomous individuals in regards to their own health and the health of their children.
