Great point, but you miss a very important fact...

The vaccinated child in the chair on the other side is just as likely as the unvaccinated child to carry the same virus! Vaccination does not prevent the vaccinee from having an undetectable, mild infection of the "vaccine preventable" disease (being a "carrier")...Your argument holds no water. Fact is, that child, undergoing chemo is at-risk no matter where she goes in public (even from the hospital staff).
