Sometimes it takes a push to do something annoying. If a child stands at the edge of the pool and does not dare to jump. The swimming instructor nudges it from behind, and half falls, half hopes the child. Get the seahorse badge and say stiffly and firmly afterwards: I jumped. For something, several pushes are needed, again and again, until someone acts. It’s not about physics, it’s about psychology.

Many are now talking about compulsory measles vaccination. The picking is sometimes dramatic, the measles break out again and again.

They particularly endanger infants who are not yet vaccinated and rely on herd protection. In the words of many pediatricians, therefore, it is quite possible to call oneself non-vaccinated oneself and one’s children as antisocial.

Is the duty the right way? Like a club it has a resounding effect: Who does not obey, gets a punishment. But clubs are not exactly precise.

A compulsory vaccination for kindergarten children, for example, would neglect that the biggest implants in the gals born in the early 1970s are: Those are those who did not have measles as children, because there were already plenty of others vaccinated – but in the early days the measles vaccine itself have not yet been vaccinated.

Obliging the vaccine would require the state, above all, the uninhibited and it is also frightening, what radical vaccination opponents argue on irrational arguments, horror stories they spread about alleged vaccine damage.

Rather the negligence of the really goodwill. These are, for example, parents who had already made a vaccination appointment for the toddler, but then got a cold and was not allowed to get the injection. The parents then forgot to make a new appointment.

This would also circumvent the legal problem that crops up again and again in the discussion about compulsory vaccination:

The Basic Law protects the right to physical integrity. Of course, a vaccine is just a joke. But one to which everyone (or each mother and father for their child) should naturally decide for themselves. Even if the policy has helped a bit.
