Vaccination vs. Non Vaccination has been a very controversial issue whatever side your on re-garding your opinion you must understand that in it will effect the health of you or your children . Even tho vaccinations are based on “choice" what if i told you that your child cannot attend a public school without vaccines. Even tho all 50 states require vaccinations for children entering public schools there is no real vaccination laws that exist . Vaccinations have cost the lives of people and have cost the government money so why are they so required . One example is that about 30,000 cases of adverse side effects have be reported due to vaccines since 1990 , Most were not serious but 15% was considered life threatening and left many people permanently dis-abled , ill , hospitalized , or in some cases even dead. In another case since 1989- July 2014 The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has paid over 133.2 million in legal coverage due to all the problem vaccinations have caused over the years
To Vaccinate or not to vaccinate, has been a question many parents in America have been asking themselves for years. Some parents believe that it is their right to decide if their children will be vaccinated; while some states believe that all children should be vaccinated. There are logical and illogical reasons for this argument. There should be a federal law that requires parents to vaccinate their children because it will lower the number of deaths, benefit those children who have lower immune systems, and it can get rid of some diseases all together in the future.
Some people believe that vaccinations should be the choice of parents and that opting out should be an option. Although these beliefs have not been thought out thoroughly. “The Science is Not Settled”, by Sandy Reider incorrectly suggests that vaccinations aren’t beneficial and that they are almost useless. Jeffrey A. Singer also implies in “Vaccinations and Free Will” that people should not be forced to get a vaccine. Singer states, “Forcibly injecting substances… into someone else’s body cannot be justified as an act of self-defense..” (text 3). This quote is completely wrong. People get vaccinations to protect themselves and others. They were made for the protection of people, not to hurt them. It is self-defense, but not just for one person, for a large quantity of people. A vaccination is a mechanism of defense and people need to get them in order to stay healthy. Reider remarks, “We know that the young child’s nervous and immune systems are actively developing and uniquely vulnerable…” (text 4). A child’s nervous system is weak. At young ages, children cannot get vaccinated. Meaning, its an adult’s
The most commonly cited reason why parents decide to not vaccinate their children is due to their belief that vaccines cause harm11. In a survey that looked at risk perception with vaccines, researches found that while 94% of individuals surveyed had vaccinated or plan on vaccinating their children, only 23% of participants had no concerns about the vaccines16. This reiterates the point that even though there are high rates of vaccination in the United States,
I believe that it is very important for a person to get vaccinated. One main reason to get vaccinated is to help prevent for getting ill. The second reason to get vaccinated is that they will keep you healthy. And the last reason to get vaccinated is when you get sick, your children, and everyone you encounter is at risk at getting it also. As you can see, getting vaccinated is very impotent.
Not being vaccinated does not only mean that you have a probable chance of becoming infected by diseases but it also means you are increasing the chances of the population around you to be infected by a disease. According to World Health Organization, infectious diseases kill over 17 million people annually. Many of the diseases that we now inoculate people against such as measles, are highly contagious. If an individual is not vaccinated, the chance of them being infected by a contagious disease is likely. Also, if an individual were to be infected by a contagious disease, there are more chances that the people who are not vaccinated around that individual are also at risk to be infected. Vaccines are considered effectual because they confer
Over many years there have been parents that are very resistant to giving their children vaccines for the most complex to simplest diseases. Getting your children vaccinated could potentially save your child’s life and wipe out the disease for good. All children should be vaccinated when they are old enough to get the medication because if they do not get vaccinated it could put their health and others’ at risk. The disease-prevention benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than the possible side effects for almost all children.
Any caring parent would want to protect their child from any harm. Vaccinations are and easy way to protect them from disease and other viruses. They will protect a child from polio, Hepatitis, and cancer. When provided with a safe and beneficial way to preserve our health, why wouldn’t we take advantage of that? People in the United States are taking advantage of the vaccination exemption status which increases out chances of an outbreak. We need to keep America safe, by vaccinating the future generation.
Parents think giving there kids shots will make them cry and scream in pain and remember for the rest of their lives. They also think that the kids will have to many shots affecting them emotionally . First off , babies don't even remember months 12-35 . What the parents aren't seeing is the outcome of what happens with kids if they're not vaccinated
There are fourteen diseases my children will not be catching. Why is that? Because I’m one of those mothers who allow doctors to poke my children forty-nine times during the first six years to prevent them from catching and spreading deadly diseases. Can you believe there are actually parents out there who think it’s better to risk their children’s health than having them vaccinated?
As a parent, there are countless tough decisions to make. Parents are responsible for their child’s well-being, which is intense pressure. They are obligated to decide what they think is in the best interest of their own child. There is also pressure from the media, and other parents, on how people should raise their children and what decisions are actually in the child’s best interest. One of the tough decisions that parents must determine is whether to have their child vaccinated or not. There is excessive disagreement about whether vaccinating children is beneficial or detrimental. There are also restrictions put in place by the government that encourage vaccines, such as children must have vaccinations to attend public school. However,
Over the past year, vaccinations have sparked controversy all over America. Some parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children. I believe that all members of the community should be properly vaccinated to avoid the spread of disease, to prevent introducing eradicated diseases to other countries, and to prevent premature death.
As widespread as vaccinations can be they are very critical for your health and well-being. There are some certain people who cannot get vaccinations for their own health reason and it could lead to risks to that person but there are other people who simply don’t get it because of reasons including parents who choose to take their child out of vaccination process because they think they will harm the child even when they know nothing about the vaccination, people have decided that not vaccinating a child is dangerous, selfish, and anti-social. Studies have been done to show that only 55% of people think that all children should get vaccinations and only 22% of people think it should be the parents’ choice and the rest rather disagree or simply
I, like citizen three, am undecided on government imposed vaccination. I don't personally agree with citizen I, point of view; but I do agree that people who do not get vaccinated are putting other people in danger. The same goes with citizen II, as a person who strongly believes in freedom of will, I can see why she opposes this issue. But at what price? At the price of others health? I think with an issue like this, it would be extremely selfish to oppose the vaccination.
It used to be that vaccinations were considered a normal part of childhood, right along with loosing teeth and toilet training. However, in recent years vaccinations have become an extremely hot button issue, with many parents actually choosing not to vaccinate their children. The idea seems preposterous considering how many people were left with twisted backs, and withered limbs due to polio, or the amount of deaths as a result of measles. To see someone who has been left in an iron lung from a disease that is now preventable, and still choose not to prevent the disease seems absolutely asinine, and yet many parents are doing just that. Sadly, much of the fear of vaccines stems from Dr. Andrew Wakefield, and his fraudulent research that
