It may be a hot topic to debate, but a new poll suggests most British Columbians support mandatory vaccines for kids.
The online survey from Insights West suggests 78 per cent of B.C. residents believe children should have to get vaccinated, while just 17 per cent believe the parents should make that decision.
There is far less support when it comes to mandatory vaccines for adults.
Seventy-nine per cent of respondents say it should be up to each person whether he or she gets immunized against things like the flu.
And what about vaccine safety?
The poll says 69 per cent of respondents rejected claims the MMR vaccine is linked to autism.
