Many children are not fully immunized. This CDC link say 23% of kids in the USA have not had all their immunization.
If people are really worried about low vaccine rates causing spikes in disease, harming babies and the immunocompromised, etc, they really need to look at adults and the undervaxxed populations, instead of hyperfocusing on the the small percent of the population who are unvaxxed by choice.
They don't want to look at adults because most adults are undervaxxed - and the blame game is no fun when the finger points back at yourself.
They do not want to look at undervaxxed children, because that would mean dealing with bigger questions around child poverty and whether things such as universal health care should exist in the USA.
If the goal of pro-vaxxers is to increase vaccination, removing barriers to the adult population who want to vaccinate themselves and their children is the way to go.
