Ontario: Religious Grounds for Vaccine Refusal

Ontario provides religious grounds fore vaccine refusal. This is odd, as I don’t recall any sacred book talking about vaccination:

Ontario only allows parents to opt out of mandatory measles vaccination for their children in very limited circumstances, Health Minister Eric Hoskins says.

Reacting to confirmation of four cases of measles in Toronto, Hoskins said Monday that it’s important for the majority of Ontarians to be vaccinated against the disease.

“It’s very contagious,” he added. “It can be dangerous, as well. It has side effects including blindness, for example, in a very small proportion of people who get it.”
