GMG’s Kim Smith did a report on measles last year, including a survey asking people their opinion about vaccinating for measles prevention. Here are the results – Out of 158 votes, 149 people (94.3%) chose this response – “All children should be vaccinated against the measles, regardless of their parent’s religious or political viewpoint (the only allowable exemptions are for health reasons).”
