Editorial: All Calif. Students Should Receive Vaccinations
A Stockton Record editorial argues that "it's almost counterintuitive" that "children in private schools are being protected from some of the most dreadful diseases at much lower rates than those in public schools." According to researchers, about 15% of private school students don't receive the recommended vaccinations, compared with 5% of public school students, it notes. The editorial concludes, "It's not just your child's health at stake. It's also the health of your child's classmates."
