Every state has its own requirements of what the required immunization are, some states even allow a waiver so that children don’t have to be vaccinated. It is very important for children to be vaccinated. As a child, their bodies are not strong enough to fight off many diseases. In the past, children have died or became very ill due to certain disease before vaccinations were available. Children who are immunized are less likely to catch any of the diseases that may be going around in the community.

The role of the nurse practitioner (NP) “evolved from the shortage of primary care medical providers in underserved areas in the 1960s” (DeNisco & Barker, 2013, p. 20).

The problem is that there are less working class then there is the elderly population. To be clear, this means there are less able-bodied working people than there are elderly people in retirement. Majority of the elderly depend on medicare. Because the elderly population is increasing, this will lead to increased health care costs. This is added to costs for advanced health care.

However, philosophical beliefs, hazardous beliefs, and religious
There are many things that go into the cause, and the lasting effects that need dealt with now, to ensure our future is in better health than it is heading at the present time.

Some people have insurance; some have government help and some work hard but can't afford insurance. When kids are sick, parents should be able to bring them to the doctor and get medicine. When elderly people need medicines, they shouldn't have to go without them because they are too expensive. I think that if we didn't have so many lawsuits in our country, doctors wouldn't have to charge so much and more people could go to the doctor when they need it.
