Such individuals are protected if their community is, for the most part, vaccinated.

But the more their peers refuse vaccination, the more at-risk these individuals become.

Green improvements on site would be encouraged, but in the rare circumstances where they are not possible, developers will need to pay a levy for habitat creation or improvement elsewhere.

The development and growing use of smallpox vaccine in the early 1800s triggered the establishment of vaccination mandates, especially for children.I’ve wrestled with this problem for a while, and I eventually came to the conclusion that a parent does not have the right to have their child in a public school if that child is unvaccinated … The societal aspect Plait references is “herd immunity.” Herd immunity is “when a critical portion of a community is immunized against a contagious disease, [so] most members of the community are protected against that disease because there is little opportunity for an outbreak.” David Perry frames the problem this way: Happily, in a population of vaccinated people, infectious but preventable diseases have trouble spreading even to the immunocompromised.But herd immunity breaks down when vaccinations are not administered to all who can medically receive them.“And part of that obligation is not sending your child to a place with other children if they aren’t immunized against preventable, communicable diseases.” Ultimately, while there is a clear medical case for vaccination, some amount of wariness is justifiable.Liberty and freedom, however, require more than doing as we please: they require a consciousness of the community, a dispassionate and informed evaluation of the facts, and decision-making based on evidence of what is best for both the individual and society as a whole.
