Is Immunisation Child Protection?

This article, published in The Lancet, argues that the failure of parental acceptance of safe and effective vaccination could be the biggest hurdle to realization of successful development and implementation of vaccines in the coming decades. The authors present the ethical issues related to parents refusing vaccinations for their children, with the underlying principle that children's interests need to be protected.
