Police with Dogs: Vaccinating Kids in Maryland
Police with Dogs: Vaccinating Kids in Maryland By Barbara Loe Fisher 19 Nov 2007 I watched them bundled up against the cold winter air on Saturday, November 17, 2007, with their children and the letter from the State of Maryland threatening them with imprisonment or fines of $50 a day for failing to show proof their children had gotten a chickenpox or hepatitis B shot. Confused, angry or scared but mostly resigned, they were… trudging toward the courthouse to face the Judge ordering them to get vaccinated or go to jail. Patrolling the scene was a SWAT team of policemen with dogs. [See: DoD to ‘augment civilian law’ during pandemic or bioterror attack –Is Bush is getting ready to play the Bioterror Card?]
