Should the MRR Vaccine be Compulsory?

A very interesting blog post over on the Nature Network by editor Henry Gee that's sparking lots of comments and debate.

"The Man is now so worried about the decline in take-up of the MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) vaccine that some clinicians are suggesting they be made compulsory – that no child should be admitted to school unless they’ve had the vaccination. Such is the level of desperation in clinical circles about the threat posed by the spread of these diseases."

What's your take on this? Do you think vaccinations should be mandatory?
