Abstract : Social distancing the unvaccinated has become an issue recently with the 'Disneyland outbreak' of measles in United States [1]. Ever since the Wakefield article (later retracted) linking MMR vaccine to autism, the issue of vaccination and so called vaccine-refusal has on and off been in the news. The American Academy of Pediatrics has even issued guidelines regarding denial of service to unvaccinated children [2,3]. A New York court has ruled in January 2015 that " the state can continue requiring public school students to be vaccinated or excluded during outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases" [4].
