Professor Teneille Brown discussed the recent measles outbreak with KSL TV on February 4, 2015.
Referencing vaccination rules and the potential for legal action, Brown said, “It’s a private suit, so there are no criminal sanctions. So nobody’s going to jail. But it would be a judge who would decide that you had a duty to vaccinate your children. Or even if you spoke more generically, you had a duty to be more careful about the risk of infection to other kids.”
