Should we mandate vaccination for your doctor, you and your children?

Should faculty or students ever be compelled to get vaccinations? What about doctors, nurses, health care workers? Or day care workers and airline personnel? Arthur Caplan will argue that all of these individuals should receive mandated vaccinations as they often make sense even though there are important arguments against imposing vaccination mandates. HPV, flu, measles, polio and other examples will be examined to make the case for requiring vaccination for many Americans.
