Parents May Soon Be Required To Talk To A Doctor Before Deciding Not To Vaccinate Their Child?

When I think back to the vaccinations I got as a child I don't remember my parents having a choice.  But, it was a different time.  They actually gave us a cube of sugar, A CUBE OF SUGAR, with a pink dot of medicine on it.  I think it was to prevent polio back then.  Parents today would never go for that, but some are eliminating vaccinations all together and I don't see why.
