Commentary: Cautionary Notes on Exemption Elimination

Lori G. Beaman

Abstract

A flourishing democracy should have a great deal of space for a wide range of beliefs and practices. The issue of vaccine hesitancy requires that we have as much data and information as possible in order to determine the precise point at which those beliefs and practices may endanger others or the population as a whole. Imposing restrictions before determining that point is about power rather than protection, and ultimately alienates portions of the population.
