BOSTON (CBS) — Routine childhood vaccines are often required for entry into school, but does making vaccines mandatory actually improve immunization rates? And what if families had to pay a penalty for failing to vaccinate? A new study in the journal Pediatrics aimed to answer these questions.

Researchers looked at 29 European countries and found those that legally mandate vaccinations for measles and pertussis or whooping cough, for example, had higher vaccination rates than countries that did not mandate them.

In countries with mandatory vaccination that did not allow families to opt-out for religious or other non-medical reasons, there were fewer measles cases.

But also, money talks. They found that countries that fined families for failing to meet the vaccination requirements had higher vaccination rates.

    You are all out of your mind what happen to right of choice.

    1. Jeff Wilson says:

      That would only be true in a Free Country, not owned by Big Harma that seeks to MURDER a portion of the population “for the Herd”.

  2. Lucy Hill says:

    Any good parent would rather lose money than poison their child with a vaccine.

      A lot of Good parents are just hypnotized or Ignorant on the subject….even WHO admitted (behind closed doors) that they don’t know what they are doing and don’t really work.

  3. NO – INSTEAD, ITS TIME TO PROPOSE A TRIBUNAL SIMILAR TO THAT OF NUREMBERG, TO METE-OUT PUNISHMENTS SIMILAR TO THOSE GIVEN TO NAZI WAR CRIMINAL DOCTORS, ONTO ALL THOSE OF THE VACCINE REGIME, PARTY TO THESE CRIMES AGAINST GOD and HUMANITY, EXTREME VIOLATIONS AGAINST GOD-GIVEN HUMAN RIGHTS (INCLUDING PARENTAL RIGHTS OF PARENTS OVER THEIR OWN GOD-GIVEN CHILDREN [PSALM 127:3, THREATENING MORE CRIMES AGAINST GOD and HUMANITY, MASS MURDER, MASS INJURY, MASS DECEPTION as to the KNOWN RISKS and HARM of VACCINES; RACKETEERING BETWEEN PHARMA COMPANIES and CORRUPT GOVERNMENTAL AGENTS, TERRORISM, DECEIVING PERSONS and FORCING INVOLUNTARY STERILIZATION and INFERTILITY ONTO SOME (in India and Kenya, as test-runs), CAUSING PERSONS TO LOSE THEIR JOBS, CAUSING CHILDREN TO BE EVICTED FROM SCHOOLS, and FORCING FAMILIES TO UPROOT THEIR ENTIRE LIVES AND FLEE FROM THEIR HOMES – TO SPARE THEIR CHILDREN FROM THE KNOWN CHRONIC DISEASING (INCLUDING CANCER and AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES), CRIPPLING, IMPAIRMENT, OTHER DAMAGES and DEATH WHICH ABSOLUTELY ARE ASSOCIATED WITH/ CAUSED BY THESE UBER-POORLY, NEGLIGENTLY “RESEARCHED” VACCINES!! What are they “researched” for? PROFITABILITY??!! CONTAGIOUSNESS OF VACCINATED PERSONS?? HOW QUICKLY HOW MANY GIRLS (and boys) DROP DEAD from the largely UNNECESSARY HPV VACCINES? With all of the death and damages that have occurred, with this “research”, whatever is it that could possibly have spent time “researching”? Its well known that vaccine “safety” studies are POORLY done – even the WHO admitted that this past week. So whats the “research” such moral giants (sarcasm) DON’T WANT QUESTIONED BY THINKING PERSONS, while these SO-CALLED “researchers” DEMAND that the BODIES OF THE CHILDREN OF OTHERS BE VIOLATED/ DEFILED and harmed, damaged, or PERHAPS EVEN KILLED (as countless children internationally have now been KILLED) by VACCINES PUSHED/ MANDATED/ COERCED-BY-THREAT/ FORCED ONTO THEM BY THE VACCINE REGIME?? Is that referring to the 271 or so MORE vaccines – of unknown harmful risks/ effects – that “researchers” / pharma companies, and corrupt governments agents racketeering for profit, along with the depopulation agendists of the UN, have on deck to develop and mandate at least some of onto the public? Again, its time to charge such TERRORISTS with the CRIMES AGAINST GOD and HUMANITY, THREATS OF MORE CRIMES AGAINST GOD and HUMANITY, INJURIES, MURDERS, and other GROSS INJUSTICES THEY, THE VACCINE REGIME, HAVE PLAGUED THIS COUNTRY and OTHER ONES WITH ALREADY.

      Senator Pan and all the other BOUGHT Piggies should be thrown in Prison….they know the Truth, they know they are not effective, (in fact all recent outbreaks of Mumps, Pertussis and Measles were among the Vaxxed, almost entirely) They are now calling Mumps a disease of the Vaccinated…..and all the strains tested now that they have good testing methods….ORIGINATE FROM THE VACCINES…It’s part of Bill Gates Population Control program… The Aluminum is there to Destroy TH1 immunity….which protects us from Virus’s and Bacteria….but they have to destroy that to get the poisons into our bodies without a horrible or even deadly immune response…..These Pigs know they are killing kids and ruining lives….but the Money they are bribed with….in the multi millions, paid by Big Harma…..motivates the Greedy Tools.

  4. Anna says:

    seriously , why is it always that money solve all the problems , WHERE there is a risk there always is a choice. WAKE UP!!! ppl we are harming our the most precious and dear. Vaccines make more harm than good , do your research parents.

  5. Question Everything says:

    Why is Congressman Bill Posey begging Congress to look at 10k pages provided by Dr. William Thompson from the CDC saying he was apart of a fraudulent MMR Study and that is does cause Autism? https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4546421/user-clip-rep-bill-posey-calling-investigation-cdcs-mmr-reasearch-fraud

  6. You are out of your mind says:

    Unbelievably disgusting!

    CBS promoting coercition for the benefits of the pharmaceutical cartel, mind blown! So if you pay then all is fine? Why is there even a need to force the issue if vaccines are so great, so safe, so efficient? People would not need to be force medicated if these were so wonderful. They are so wonderful that the pharma cartel threatened to stop making pediatric vaccines in the 80’s as they were facing law suits after law suit for injuries and Congress ended up granting them judicial immunity in 1986. Isn’t that wonderful? A captive liability-free and ever growing market. NUTS! How’s that for free market?

    What happened to informed consent?
    What happened to “do no harm”?
    What happened to chose how to medicate yourself, if at all?
    What happens to the basic human right owning our bodies?

    You guys are out of your minds, this is not Russia.
    I would pay money to preserve my family out of the despicable big pharma cartel, as a matter of fact, I would seek political asylum outside the US if I had to!

      Bought Medical Tyranny Evil and wrong….yet the uninformed (like the author) and the corrupt and bought greedy pigs don’t care about life if they can make a buck The Science is settled, Vaccines are neither safe or effective…Zero real placebo testing….ever, zero testing on pregnant women (yet they pushed it on them until they got sued by Del Bigtree and Kennedy and proved they had so right, in fact broke the law when they said it was safe and effective because they had never done a single study…..) that is Evil… And,”Effective”…HA HA HA HA HA, most if not all Mumps cases are in the Vaxxed, Pertussis, same thing….at least half of Measles is in the Vaxxed….. By killing the TH1 immunity with the Aluminum it is not only turning the Vaxxed into carriers but allowing the diseases to mutate into harder to treat forms. When you kill TH1 immunity these folks can contract the diseases, carry them around in their mucous membranes…..the diseases will be attacked and maybe possibly every once and a while be destroyed in the blood….so no symptoms, BUT they live in the throat quite happily, mutating and being spread……. All tested strains of these “dreaded diseases” (all of which I had as a kid and now have a strong immune system……are found to come from the Vaccines…… Good Job Big Harma…… good job fools for promoting this Evil Crime against Humanity as if it had any merit at all. I mean look at how they scammed about Polio…..just kept renaming it to make it look like it went away. Polio is actually fairly Benign……most that contract it don’t know they have it…only a very small % shows symptoms….all those “Polio cases” were NOT even Polio……. so after the vaccine came out they decided to call them what they actually were…(before that anything causing paralysis or destruction to the mylin was called Polio)…so they decided to break it down into what was actually Polio after the vaccine came out…..”MIRACLE CURE”….of course all the other diseases that they were calling Polio (but had no vaccine for) Skyrocketed…. Salk (creator of the Polio Vaccine) went with top scientists and begged Congress to quit giving the Vaccine because it was THE ONLY CAUSE OF POLIO….I watched a film clip…sitting next to the committee chairman was a Big Harma Lobbyist, whispering in his ear the whole time….Did Science win, did they stop giving the vaccine and spreading the disease? Nope, big money won and a committee chairman made Bank that day…

  7. Gail says:

    First we have to demand our Constitutional right to sue vaccine manufacturers in a criminal court when they injury and kill people with their products! This should not be the only industry in all of corporate American that does NOT do safety studies and are NOT liable for harm from their products!!!

  8. kim allsop says:

    I guess the WHO….didn’t agree with this article…Stupid bought out journalist…here is a question for her..U stupid? WTH? https://www.youtube.com/watch?fbclid=IwAR3RlQiHx_U5UIUm_qbhjkqm7HiQqCHH6u0AiC_YWRHt4C0O4imImSfNmHw&t=&v=_1xey8zlyQo&app=desktop

  9. Janie says:

    Dr. Mallika Marshall, it is total abuse of power! Forcing a product with no liability! Forcing your child to be injected with vaccines that have no record of safety testing and known to cause injury and death is ludicrous!

  10. Cat says:

    For the love of money is the root of all evil …1 Timothy 6:10. – Big Pharma leads with this lack of integrity. I’m not a follower of these idols of our culture and false prophets. May the Lord God have mercy on us!! Our children are not to be bought!

  11. Elise says:

    How about check what is the percentage of chronic diseases in highly vaccinated population agains the ones who have less vaccines? We cannot look at health based on the infections diseases, ignoring the new life threatening auto-immune diseases like diabetes type 1, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and childhood cancers that has grown side by side with vaccine schedule in countries like the USA, from 12% to 53%. Since the pharmaceutical industry was free from liability in the childhood drug program AKA vaccines, the number of vaccines has tripled (23 doses to 69). How about PBS look at why so many doses needed to be added to the schedule, or why many of the measles cases happened in vaccinated people? I suggest that you call the article, Vaccine Failure. Or look at the amount paid by the vaccine compensation fund that paid over $ 4 billions for injuries and deaths using tax payers money.
    PS: Vaccines are the only pharmaceutical drug that hasn’t been tested against a placebo group, never has!

  12. Rob L says:

    This is in no way different than the Soviet or Nazi approach to a centrally planned society.

  13. Lisa H Smith says:

    Fewer measles cases huh? So how many more vaccine injuries? I notice that’s not part of this story.

  14. T.G. says:

    No. This is against the Constitution, and against the natural laws that make us free people. No one owns my body but me, it was given to me by God. The ingredients go against my beliefs. The attack on and the manipulation of an immune system goes against my beliefs. When God made man He said, “It is good”. I have friends with vaccine injured children. There are no safety studies to show that vaccines are safe, or effective. Only a few years ago they discovered that the brain is linked to the immune system via the lymphatic system. This was a groundbreaking find. The science is NOT settled, it is only beginning. The science they are basing vaccines on is outdated and false. Vaccines attack and manipulate the immune system, and the vaccine manufacturers have no idea of the complexities of the immune system or the systemic damages that their vaccines are doing to the human body.

    Countries with higher breastfeeding rates and longer duration of breastfeeding have incredibly improved health outcomes for children and adults. The WHO once recommended mothers breasfeed their babies a minimum of two years, but no one is recommending we fine parents who don’t breastfeed. We don’t go around calling non-breastfeeding families, “anti-lactationists” and blaming them for putting their children at increased risk for negative health outcomes and for increasing all our healthcare costs with more clinic and hospital visits. No one is making billions of dollars off of breastfeeding.

    The pharmaceutical industry is in the business of making a profit and must always expand and grow to please shareholders. Follow the money. Don’t give them an inch. First it will be mandates and fines for school. Next it will be adult mandates and fines if you want a driver’s license, a passport, a visa, etc. Protect bodily autonomy, informed consent and parental rights. Let parents make uncoerced informed decisions for their children. Vaccine injury and death are real. Read the package insert. Note the 7 billion paid out to claimants for vaccine injury and death. Where there is risk there must always be choice.

    No to forced medications.

    Theresa Deisher, PhD one of the top scientist in our country in Stem Cells Research has discovered that vaccines that use human aborted fetus cells to create the vaccine are causing an epidemic of cancers, autoimmune diseases and autism. She discovered that stem cells in our body recognize human fragments of DNA from aborted baby fetus cells and then mutate. These mutations can cause cancers like Leukemia and lymphomas, autoimmune diseases and autism. The MMR and Chicken Pox vaccines are loaded with aborted baby fetus DNA fragments.

  18. Xavier wolf says:

    If vaccines are so safe, why are the vaccine makers free from liability? All you have to do is read the vaccine insert to find out all the possible side effects to the toxic ingredients. The MMR II product insert acknowledges that death is a potential side effect from the vaccine, along with a long list of other potential permanent injuries. Are vaccine injuries or death rare? Are vaccine injuries or death one in a million? Just go to the U.S. CDC’s VAERS Database where you will find for 2018 in the U.S.:
    60,544 Reports of Injuries including:
    443 Deaths
    267 Permanent Disabilities
    4,414 Hospitalizations
    According to a Harvard study payed for by the CDC, less than 1 % of injuries and deaths are reported to VAERS. So the projected actual numbers are:
    44,300 Deaths
    26,700 Permanent Disabilities
    441,400 Hospitalizations.
    Those numbers are not 1 in a million. How many lives must be sacrificed for the mythical herd immunity? The only emergency is that people need to wake up sooner to the Criminal Pharmaceutic Industry lies and fraud.

    The Journal of Clinical Microbiology (2017) reported: “During the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences .” Rebecca J. McNall, a co-author of the published report, is a CDC official in the Division of Viral Diseases, who had the data proving that the measles outbreak was in part caused by the vaccine. It is evidence of the vaccine’s failure to provide immunity. But this crucial information has been concealed, and continues to be withheld from the public. So as much as 38% of people with measles got it from the vaccine and also spread it to others.. It explains why some hospitals do not allow you inside if you have been recently vaccinated by a live virus vaccine for up to 30 days since vaccinees are shedding the virus and infecting others.

    Dr. Zimmerman, considered the world’s top pediatric neurologist in the field of autism research, was selected as the star medical expert witness by Health and Human Services (HHS) during the Omnibus Autism Proceedings to debunk vaccine-autism claims filed in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Dr. Zimmerman has clarified his opinion to the DOJ attorneys that vaccines CAN cause autism in a subset of children with a mitochondrial vulnerability and that he did not intend for his testimony to be a blanket statement for all children and all medical science. The DOJ and CDC have committed fraud to prevent vaccine damage children and families from getting compensated.

  21. Xavier Wolf says:

    The World Health Organization recently had a meeting (December 2019, Global Vaccine Safety Summit) where they concluded:

    • Vaccines can be fatal.
    • The design of safety studies makes it difficult to spot problems.
    • Safety monitoring is inadequate.
    • Vaccine adjuvants increase risk.

    They also agreed that vaccine pre-licensure clinical trials may not be powered enough (meaning they are too small to detect statistically significant effects) and that the generally inadequate follow-up of trial participants complicates safety evaluation.
