Giving up freedom out of fear, is a threshold that should be carefully evaluated.
What about protecting the fragile, immunocompromised?
Immunosuppression is serious because the immune system no longer works to defend the organism against non-self invaders that may cause illness. The term “vaccine preventable diseases” here is a bit misleading, because those who have been vaccinated can in many cases still be infectious carriers of wild type bacteria and/or and vaccine strain viruses.
Vaccines are not 100% safe (they have the potential to cause harm to the recipient). Nor are they 100% effective (they are not guaranteed to protect from disease). As such, they should never be viewed as the primary way in which we might protect immunocompromised persons.
