Maryland parents are threatened with fines or jail time if they don't get kids vaccinated.
Jail time for skipping the chicken pox vaccine? It's a real possibility if you live in Prince George's County, Maryland. The parents of more than 2,300 students in the county who fail to get vaccinations could face fines of $50 a day and up to 10 days in jail if their children do not meet the state's immunization requirements, say local officials. We know plenty of Moms who've chosen to delay vaccinations or skip them altogether due to concerns about safety. Should vaccination be a personal choice or a mandate?
