Immunization Reflection

Discuss the following prompts:
1. Discuss the delicate balance of public health protection versus individual liberty (i.e., personal rights and free will).

2. Is it ethically justifiable to mandate vaccinations?

3. What is your position on the exceptions offered?

4. Defend your positions relying on ethical arguments rather than personal beliefs.
