The recent outbreak of measles in the United States has fuelled debate about vaccinations for children.

Follow up:

Prominent Democrats and Republicans have been especially vocal on the issue but what do the American public really think? A recent poll from YouGov shed some light on the situation. When asked "if the government should/should not require parents to have their children vaccinated", the vast majority of respendents, 68 percent, agreed.

Vaccine mandates also enjoy considerable bipartisan support with 67 percent of Republicans and 81 percent of Democrats agreeing on the issue. Political independents had the highest level of opposition against vaccinations but nevertheless, 59 percent of them still agreed that they are necessary.

This chart shows responses to whether the government should/should not require parents to have their children vaccinated.
