I think it honestly depends on WHICH vaccines. There are things we genuinely do not need to be vaccinated against - but the people killers, measles, polio, and various things, absolutely we MUST.

There are a lot of vaccines, out there; I'd hope that "compulsory" only applied to the diseases that can kill. Not the "maybe you'll get this if you're sexually active at 12 oh and it doesn't REALLY fix anything but you should get it anyway" kind of vaccine.
