Refusing swine flu vaccine? Quarantine and $1,000 per day fine

A bill that passed the Massachusetts senate earlier this year gives the government a little too much power.

According to the bill, if there is a Swine Flu pandemic and you don't get the Swine Flu vaccine, you can be ordered into quarantine. If you refuse the quarantine, you can face a fine of $1,000 per day that you resist.

Government officials would also have the right to enter private property to assess the status of the pandemic.

To see the whole story, see the news clip below.

Editor: I read somewhere in the last 2-3 weeks that Massachusetts has deputized hundreds of paramedics, dentists, doctors and health care practitioners to administer the vaccine. My question is WHY they have to be deputized to give someone a shot?
