Mandatory Vaccinations for US citizens - What are they thinking?

Mandatory Vaccination Bill passes senate in MA
Even though I don't live in MA, I am concerned about this new bill
The bill gives the public health commissioner the discretion to respond to an outbreak like the kind going on in Mexico - to close or evacuate buildings, enter private property, isolate or quarantine people, and to get and distribute meds and vaccines.
If you refuse the vaccination or refuse to be quarantined (FEMA camps?) the penalty is $1000 per day or 30 days in prison.
Sounds like they are using volunteers (community organizers?) to help enforce it.
I for one don't want to have the government enforce any kind of mandatory vaccine or any procedure for that matter.
"On February 15, 1976, an army recruit at Fort Dix said he felt tired and weak. He died the next day and four of his fellow soldiers were later hospitalized. Two weeks after his death, health officials announced that swine flu was the cause of death and that this strain of flu appeared to be closely related to the strain involved in the 1918 flu pandemic . Alarmed public-health officials decided that action must be taken to head off another major pandemic , and they urged President Gerald Ford that every person in the U.S. be vaccinated for the disease. The vaccination program was plagued by delays and public relations problems, but about 24% of the population had been vaccinated by the time the program was canceled. Only one person, the Fort Dix army recruit, died from the flu"
