Appearing on the Fox News show Happening Now, a panel of doctors weren’t having it when host Jenna Lee suggested that vaccinating children could be a question of “personal liberty.”
“There is a question about personal liberty and having the choice to make the choices for your children, and also what’s good for the community,” Lee said.
She then asked if the doctors thought there should be a “federal regulation” forcing children to be vaccinated.
Unanimously, the doctors outright rejected the “personal liberty” idea.
“Look, I think that vaccines have prevented millions of children around the planet from dying,” Dr. Manny Alvarez first replied. “If we get into a philosophical argument about whether vaccines are safe or not — they’re safe.”
“This goes from being a personal decision to a public hazard if you’re not vaccinating your child,” Dr. Darria Long Gillespie added.
“We will need something from the top down to make sure that everyone stays vaccinated,” said Dr. Frank Esper.
