Opinion: Refusing Vaccines Puts Public Health at Risk
People who decline vaccination for themselves or their children "put the public at risk by fueling the resurgence of nearly eradicated diseases," David Ropeik, instructor at Harvard University, writes in a Los Angeles Times opinion piece. Ropeik continues, "It is appropriate, and urgent, that we act to protect public health from those whose choices about vaccines are putting the rest of us at risk: We make them stop."
