I can't believe this is even up for debate.
If you do not vaccinate your children (excluding MEDICAL EXCEPTIONS), your children should not be allowed in any public school. I'd also go as far as to call the parents fools because their children may be punished as a result of the their parents's stupidity/ignorance.
There are about 2000 deaths from strep throat yearly. So where's the strep vaccine? Why aren't people freaking out about strep in public areas?
Because strep throat can be treated easily with antibiotics.
You're thinking of invasive Group A Strep, which is different from strep throat.
Here's an excerpt from the CDC:
Approximately 9,000-11,500 cases of invasive GAS disease occur each year in the United States, resulting in 1,000-1,800 deaths annually. STSS and necrotizing fasciitis are each responsible for an average of about 6%-7% of these invasive cases. In contrast, there are several million cases of strep throat and impetigo each year.
Few people who come in contact with GAS will develop invasive GAS disease. Most people will have a throat or skin infection, and some may have no symptoms at all. Although healthy people can get invasive GAS disease, people with chronic illnesses like cancer, diabetes, and chronic heart or lung disease, and those who use medications such as steroids have a higher risk. People with skin lesions (such as cuts, chickenpox, or surgical wounds), the elderly, and adults with a history of alcohol abuse or injection drug use also have a higher risk for disease. Source
