Abstract

Last week saw the controversy over vaccines escalate to the 2016 presidential hopefuls, with Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY) stating that vaccination is a personal decision, and Hillary Clinton making a strong stand in favor. Richard Brodsky argues that Clinton’s position as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee gives her the freedom to stake out a political position. Rand Paul, on the other hand, finds himself amongst a wide Republican field and so must tilt his comments to play to his party’s base.
