Summary/Abstract: The public space is full with news regarding the right of individuals to decide against vaccination as a human right, namely the right to decide whether to accept a medical procedure or not. The movement tends to expand and a part of the population decided not to vaccinate their children based on a certain interpretation of their fundamental freedoms. But when it comes to medical aspects the individual rights must be balanced with the collective rights, and a right balance must be identified. The article explores the impact of the current trend, the way states approached this balance, and the European governance in this field.
