Yea, that is really stupid of the government to think they can MAKE people have immunizations!
What’s next, shots for polio, or tetanus, or measles, or hepatitus A, or hepatitus B, or pneumococcal vaccine, or rotavirus vaccine, or influenza, or MMR, or varicella vaccine, or meningococcal vaccine, or human pappilomavirus vaccine? Guess they already do since the above list is from the recommended immunization schedule/S

Hey, isn’t a lot of this “need” the fault of the gummit in forcing larger crowds of kids together than would exist in a homeschooling situation or most parochial/private schools? If there is an axe to grind against the pub skewls, this would be the place to do it.

Exactly! After all, nobody wants their daughter catching an STD from a toilet seat!

("Thou shouldst not have been old, till thou hadst been wise.")
Requiring a vaccine for something that can be spread through casual contact (i.e. being in the same room as someone who has the disease or touching a pencil the suffering person touched) is VERY different from mandating a vaccine to stop the spread of something that is caused only by behaviors that are risky even with the vaccine.
Most intelligent people grasp that difference.

(Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.)
See Rick Santorum’s answer. HPV is not transmittable without sexual contact. All of those other diseases are spread by casual contact. Apples and bananas if you please.
All the diseases for which immunization is required are contagious in the general population. HPV and cervical cancer are acquired solely through promiscuous sex, not casual contact. Nice try.
