Technically, yes, though in the US there is no legal precedent I am aware of
for compelling personal decision so it is a tough journey with lots of court
time along the way.
But there is a greater issue and that is the consequences of not vaccinating,
including not only ourselves but our children. That needs to be statistically
measured and defined as a basis for such a step, and that would include counter
arguments (such as adverse reaction to vaccine). I do not believe that has
ever been done comprehensively (though you will probably find articles that
postulate (on a limited scope) such analysis.
But yes, there will probably come a time with COVID-19 when we can pin down,
for each vaccine refusal, a fractional count of subsequent hospitalizations
and lives lost statistic where we will know that for each vaccinated person,
say as an example, .0043 hospitalizations were resultant and .0009 lives were
lost. That is if there is follow through on the avalanche of statistical
attention COVID-19 is now receiving.
