Poll: Pointed Questions — and Answers — About Mandatory Vaccines for Kids

NJ Spotlight | April 30, 2015 | Polling
Does the state have the right to require all schoolchildren, except those with medical conditions, to be vaccinated?

The California measles outbreak earlier this year highlighted the issue of vaccines and whether families should be allowed exemptions from the state law that requires all schoolchildren to be immunized against a number of major diseases.

NJ Spotlight highlighted the issue in a major report published earlier this week in which it found that hundreds of New Jersey schools do not have the recommended number of children vaccinated in order to provide “herd immunity.”
