Do they have a strep throat vaccine or a pink eye vaccine? I don't see how you can compare something that you can't really prevent and don't have a choice about (because there is no vaccine) to something that you can prevent and do have a choice about (because there is a vaccine.) Also, even if there were a pink eye vaccine, no I wouldn't sue you over it because pink eye is not typically dangerous. Pertussis on the other hand could kill either one of my kids, Reid because he is so little and T because he has asthma that is very reactive to respiratory infections. I can't fathom comparing the two.
I also agree that we need to do a better job of making sure that adults are up on their vaccines. I know that I didn't think about vaccines for YEARS until I had kids, because no one ever asked me about them.
