Disneyland is the most magical place in the world. A day at Disney is equal to a lifetime of fun! With all the rides, shops, and shows, which are only to name a few attractions, you are guaranteed to have the time of your life! One day Walt Disney had a
Anti-Vaxxer Debate In these blog post “Enough is Enough with Blaming ‘Anit-Vaxxers’” by Modern Alternative Health and “Enough is Never Enough with Blaming ‘Anit-Vaxxers’” by SciBabe, they each gave their opinions about vaccination choice and their reaction to the 2015 measles outbreak at Disneyland. While Scibabe is more on the offensive side and pointing out Modern Alternative Health’s flaws, Modern Alternative Health stays more on the defensive side in order to get her point across. Just one thing that both of these blogs post can agree on is that children are suffering one way or another, no doubt about it, the children are the first priority.
The Ethical Dilemma Associated With Vaccinations Some of the most important things in life is our health and family. Individuals cherish their family and try to provide the best life afforded to them. When their family’s safety or health is in jeopardy, the individuals will try to protect and ensure the proper measures are taken to safeguard their recovery to a healthy state. When this effects the child, the parents will do anything to ensure these beliefs by any means necessary. This can be a productive attitude, but also can be destructive to the parent’s goal of maintaining the child’s safety and health. In addition, this also evokes ethical dilemmas in pediatric health care. One dilemma that has been on the rise in the last decade, is parents refuting vaccinations for their children from reports of a link to vaccines causing autism. From December 2014 to February 2015 a 110 individuals acquired measles associated to the Disney Land® theme park. During the outbreak, 49% of the victims were unvaccinated and the rest were in different stages in the MMR vaccination process (i.e., only received one to two doses) (Zipprich, J., Winter, K., Hacker, J., Xia, D., Watt, J., & Harriman, K., 2015).
When Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and all of their friends come to mind the first thing you think of is Disneyland. Without these characters and Disneyland the entertainment and cartoon industry would not be where it currently stands to this day. The one man who brought all these creatures to life was the wonderful Walt Disney, along with the help of all the animators in which serviced him. Some people might think that Walt had a decently easy life and a cool story but the real story is that he worked his butt, arm and leg off to get to the point of his career to be so well known worldwide. He refused to let anybody or anything get in the way of what he truly felt he was to do with his life. Every obstacle that stood in his way was overtaken with the help of his brother and wife. Walt was a creative, imaginative, and visual person that created a trillion dollar empire and made a magical kingdom for all men, women, and children to enjoy.
Most diseases prevented by vaccines are no longer common in the United States. Vaccines prevent more than 2.5 million deaths each year according to the website DoSomething.org. Yet, if vaccines were not used, a few small cases of the measles could quickly turn into hundreds or thousands of cases. With

Last year on November, my sisters, their boyfriends, and I went to Las Angeles for a late graduation present.

On the second and third day we went to Disneyland and Universal Studios, it was my first time going to DisneyLand and Universal Studios and i had a great time.

It was a sunny Christmas morning I had just woken up to the sounds of my brothers and sisters making a ruckus in the family room, so I got up out of bed and I was attacked by the screams from the living room. My siblings were extremely excited that it was Christmas morning and that they were finally able to open their presents that have been sitting under the Christmas tree since the beginning of the month. It was about 9:30 am by the time my parents woke up and we were aloud to open our presents. I got clothes which is fine because it saved me one trip to the mall. My sisters also got some clothes and my little brother got mountains of Legos. After we opened presents my cousins showed up and we all went out for brunch at Denny’s. After our
This year is going to be the BEST year ever because… I get to go to Disneyland. My extended family and I are going in March. I haven’t been for such a long time. I can’t wait to go on the thrilling roller coasters. I’m excited for all of the cool disney rides like: The Log Ride, The Matterhorn, and my favorite, The Indiana Jones Ride. Also, I love staying in hotels. It’s like living in a mansion with amazing choices for breakfast and you even have your own cleaning service. Besides, I just like riding in the elevators. It is going to be lots of fun.
Vaccinations are an integral part of maintaining public health. In fact, they have been recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as one of the “Ten Great Public Health Achievements in the 20th Century.” However, despite staggering statistical evidence in favor of immunizations, as well as science that has been made easily accessible to the public, there is a growing minority of citizens who hesitate or completely refuse vaccines. Vaccine hesitators have existed since the initial introduction of vaccines (Heifferon, 2006). However, the threat of modern vaccine hesitators differs greatly from that of their historically similar counterparts. The digital age provides vaccine hesitators the means to network, share misinformation, and recruit without geographic limitations. Many have settled into tightly-knit online communities in which they can share their beliefs and concerns with likeminded individuals. The growth and success of the modern anti-vaccination movement poses a direct threat to public health, as can be seen from the widely-publicized 2015 measles outbreak that originated at Disneyland in California (Zipprich et al., 2015). This makes it imperative that we attempt to better understand members of these online communities so that we can discern how best to react to them.
It’s true that some vaccine-preventable diseases have become less frequent thanks to vaccinations. However, cases and occurrence still happen. In 2014 measles came back into the attention, with over 600 cases from 27 states reported to Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center from Immunization and Respiratory Diseases

In the year 2000, national leaders in the United States declared that measles had been eliminated
Introduction/Problem Statement Over the past few decades, immunizations have saved more than a billion lives and prevented countless illnesses and disabilities in the United States. Vaccine-preventable diseases are still a threat today. These diseases can be passed on to those who are not protected by vaccines, resulting in hospitalizations and deaths every year (Common, 2015). But there is still a small number of people who continue to fight mandatory immunizations, and refuse to abide by the immunization schedule. It has been shown that refusing to follow vaccine protocols can result in disease outbreaks such as the December 2014 measles outbreak that began at Disneyland (Koch, 2000). Even though in
According to the World Health Organization, immunizations currently prevent between two to three million deaths every single year among all age groups. Vaccinations are one of the most cost-effective and successful public health interventions. As human beings, our natural instincts are to survive. If vaccinations have the ability to increase one’s probability of survival and overall quality of life, then why are some individuals choosing to not vaccinate themselves or their children? Their decision may be linked to the false, misleading information that is linked to vaccinations. A few decades ago, vaccinations were assumed to be a normal part of childhood, along with learning how to ride a bike and tie shoes. However, recently some parents have decided to not vaccinate their children. While the group of parents that choose to not vaccinate their children may be small, they put a significant amount of the population at risk while furthermore having a significant impact on public health. Many states in the America have regulations and rules regarding vaccinations, however, rules and regulations tend to vary by state which makes it difficult to abolish certain diseases. In order to eliminate deadly-life threatening diseases, parents need to be informed and educated on vaccinations. Vaccinations are a crucial element needed to guarantee public health and safety.
A Review of the Literature In the month of December 2015, the CDC inform the public that there had been about 129 cases of Measles that were found to have been originated at the Disneyland California. The CDC stated the United States experienced a large, multi-state measles outbreak linked to an amusement park in California. The outbreak likely started from a traveler who became infected overseas with measles, then visited the amusement park while infectious; however, no source was identified (CDC.) The Measles outbreak has sparked a renew controversy within the vaccine communities the pro and anti-vaccine camps have been fighting for this issue for a while.
