The head of the Advanced Medical Research Institute of Canada here in Sudbury says vaccines should be mandatory.

The topic has become front and center after a number of confirmed cases of the measles across the country.

Dr. Francisco Diaz-Mitoma says it’s fact that kids not immunized are at risk of serious complications.

He says in many cases, parents who don’t want their kids to be vaccinated, lack all the information needed.

Diaz-Mitoma says 98% of parents will vaccinate their kids if they are provided with all the necessary information end up making the right decision.
