INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Should Hawai‘i Require Vaccinations for All Healthy Children?


Measles outbreaks linked to unvaccinated children on the mainland have many in Hawai‘i questioning whether our vaccination requirements are strong enough to prevent an outbreak here. Although several vaccinations are required to attend public schools, parents who believe the shots are dangerous or unnecessary can seek exemptions for religious and medical reasons. But now that the nearly eradicated measles virus has returned, should exemptions for healthy children still be allowed? Malia Mattoch moderates this discussion.
