PF Vaccination Topic - Evidence Abounds


For more about Public Forum Debate including topic analysis, strategies and links to evidence, *click here*.



Resolved: State mandated administration of childhood vaccinations is justified.

Evidence
As promised, a little evidence to get you started.  I tried to supply links you should be able to view without requiring special access to research databases.  Many of the articles are PDFs, and some of the really big links actually open Word documents, so if you can not open a Word file, you may want to skip those.
