Married couples should face fewer legal issues if they disagree, but unmarried parents may have to contend with both issues within the family; such as who has the final decision regarding the child's health and best interests. Parents disagreeing on childhood vaccinations is nothing new, but Covid-19 has added a level of safety and legality not dealt with before.
