Abstract

The empirical analysis attempts to extract the reasons for the low vaccination rate in the UK. Although no social data on patients were available, it appears that GP-related factors, such as case loads, lists sizes, etc., do correlate with the failure to vaccinate. Once again, the interplay of many macrolevel factors, such as resource availability, social processes, and attitudes, results in microlevel effects. In this case, it is argued that compulsory vaccination is preferable to persuasion.-from Editor
