Proposal to make vaccination compulsory

4:37 min

As more than 20 people are affected by a measles outbreak that started last month, we speak to a politician who wants to make it compulsory to have your children vaccinated.

December's outbreak in Gothenburg also comes on the heels of another one during the spring that saw several people in Stockholm fall ill with the highly contagious virus.

Sofia Arkelsten is a member of parliament for the Moderate Party and tells Radio Sweden why she wants the vaccine program made mandatory for newborns.
