The Supreme Court of Chile ordered the vaccination of a minor whose parents had opposed his inoculation. Although the Court reached the correct result, it did so in a rather deficient way, failing to adequately explain the reasons why mandatory vaccination is appropriate. The Court should have based its decision on the balancing-test of private autonomy and public health, opting to protect the latter, and expressly rejecting the wrong arguments put forward by the anti-vaccine movement.
