The ethical issues associated with immunization are complex.
Each vaccine is a little different. Much has been written about
parent attitudes, about physician attitudes, and about public
policy. Because the issues are different for each vaccine, we will
discuss each separately, and offer slides that specifically address
the controversies about pertussis and MMR for children, HPV for
adolescents, and influenza for health care workers.
We also include some more general articles that address the
moral framework for any ethically defensible immunization
