Americans Strongly Favor Requiring Vaccinations For School

Despite ongoing concerns about their safety, adults are still adamant that students should be vaccinated before going to school.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of American Adults believe the law should require that all students be vaccinated before being allowed to attend school unless they are exempted for medical reasons, showing little change from previous years. Just 16% disagree, but 11% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
