I'd be there with you, but the trouble is most anti-vaxers are so because of a belief - the same belief that assures them that their child won't get sick. By the time the kids gets sick, it's too late. There is no deterrent if they believe they are safe (regardless of how rooted in reality their belief actually is).

While personally I am ok with punishing them after the fact (a little more ok that I want to admit ;)), if it stands an equal to zero chance of working as a deterrent, I can't think it's a good idea politically.

If I have not seen as far as others, it is because giants were standing on my shoulders. -- Hal Abelson
