“I’m not anti-vaccine at all, but most of them ought to be voluntary,” Paul said Monday on the “Laura Ingraham Show.” Later Monday, on CNBC, he went further, saying, “I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines,” a view that is strongly disputed by the medical community and seems to be based on an influential study published in the Lancet medical journal that was discredited and retracted in 2010.

While touring a facility that makes vaccines in the U.K., New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was asked whether Americans ought to vaccinate their children. He said, “All I can say is that we vaccinated ours. That’s the best expression I can give you of my opinion.” But, he added, “I also understand that parents need to have some measure of choice in things as well,” a response that was roundly criticized by Democrats.

Paul’s children were also vaccinated, although because the number of recommended vaccines for children is high, he chose to delay some of the vaccinations and stagger them over time. He reminded listeners on Ingraham’s show that another potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, had for a time issued an executive order mandating one vaccine for girls. “I don’t know if you remember when Governor Perry made it mandatory to get, for a sexually transmitted disease, to have everybody have to take it,” Paul said. “While I think it’s a good idea to take the vaccine, I think that’s a personal decision for individuals to take and when they take it.” While Perry was running for president in 2012, he came under heavy criticism for the executive order, and later called it “a mistake.” Perry has not said anything recently on the topic.

It is a controversial issue and the risks are there. The question is, should it be mandatory or left up to the parents to make that decision. It will probably be a topic no one can agree on, but there should be more research into if they are harmful. What do you as the general public think? To vaccinate or not to vaccinate. That is the question!
