Make anti-vaccine parents pay higher premiums



Refusing to vaccinate a child is dangerous not just for that child but for entire communities. It’s precisely this point a colleague of mine was considering when he had the idea that parents who refuse to vaccinate their kids should pay substantially higher health insurance premiums.

That is an awesome idea. It’s time to make stupidity a taxing offense. Smokers often have to pay higher insurance rates because they (including me) engage in behavior that is knowingly hazardous to their health and is potentially fatal.

So is not getting your kids vaccinated.
