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.
Whereas if my child gets one of the viruses or diseases from not being vaccinated it can be fatal to not only my child but spread to other children who are not vaccinated. The evidence to support my viewpoint is that there is still no concrete evidence supporting the theory that getting your child vaccinated causes things such as autism and that it will weaken their immune systems. I read “According to a 2003 report by researchers at the Pediatric Academic Society, childhood vaccinations in the US prevent about 10.5 million cases of infectious illness and 33,000 deaths per year.”( "Vaccines ProCon.org", n.d., p. xx) If you were to not get your child their vaccinations they are at risk for getting the disease/virus and this could be fatal, and it is not only bad for them but could spread to other children as well this increases the risk of spreading the disease whereas if they were all vaccinated there would be no risk of
My response has always been no. I responded no simply because I didn’t know what HPV was, so why get a vaccine for something that I didn’t know what I was trying to prevent. What I didn’t know was that when I receive my pap they check to make sure nothing is wrong with my cervix which is what HPV attacks. HPVSafety.com stated “High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) can be detected through a simple test and among women, who stand a higher risk of cervical cancer; this can be done along with the Pap smear test. On the other hand, there is as of now no FDA-approved test to detect HPV in men.
In the article “Smallpox Shots: Make Them Mandatory”, author Krauthammer mainly discusses about whether the smallpox shots should be mandatory to all people in America or not, and why we need to make the vaccination mandatory. Author firstly introduces that nowadays people have successfully discovered the way to eradicate the smallpox by using vaccination. However, in another side of view, it could also weaken human’s immunity and also allow some bad guys to use virus to attack us. Due to these kinds of potential dangers, making the shots mandatory to soldiers, voluntary to medical or emergency workers and leaving up all other individuals seem like a solution. Yet author doubt it and thinks the shots should be mandatory to every individual
SIDS Each year an estimated 7,000 babies die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), in the United States alone. More children die of SIDS than aids, cancer, heart disease, child abuse, Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Dystrophy combined. (Holcher 2000) It is by far the deadliest and the most mysterious syndrome known to affect children. Very little is known about SIDS, however, statistics show that 95 percent of SIDS deaths happen between two and four months of age. The death rate for SIDS nearly doubles in winter months, when the weather turns colder.
It is also believed that vaccines are causing autism. Though I concede that getting vaccinated can be somewhat dangerous, I still maintain the idea that they should not be the sole reason to blame for the fact that children are being diagnosed with autism. There has been no concrete evidence that there is a direct correlation between being immunized and this neurological disorder. Generally administered to toddlers 12-15 months old, the extremely common vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella, (MMR) supposedly causes a gastrointestinal syndrome in children that are more susceptible. Such syndrome allows unspecified toxins to be released into the bloodstream, thus triggering autism.
Vaccine Controversy After reading the article about the vaccination controversy and reviewing some of the hyper-links and watching the video I feel, that even though people may have fears of their child developing autism or other health risks, vaccination is the best defense for us against many disease. It would seem, that with the recent wide spread out break of Measles, people would be able to see just how important vaccinations are. Vaccinations help to prevent so many children for becoming sick or even possibly dying from illness that have killed and scared so many in the past. I feel that people have forgotten how terrible these diseases can be, for example Pertussis also know at Whooping cough can be life threating for babies who are
Beneficial in the way it helps the overall population and harmful for its side effects are not always certain. To me, the benefit of the overall population outweighs the damage from one person. However, there are several reasons why some people are against vaccinations. One reason being, that it is against some religions. According to Mathew D. Staver, people oppose certain vaccines because some vaccines are made from aborted fetal tissue; such as vaccines for Chicken pox, Hepatitis-A, and Rubella.
To save America's health care system, the United States must tighten its borders, revoke the automatic citizenship of anchor babies, punish those who help illegal aliens, and stop granting amnesty. The influx of illegal aliens has serious hidden medical consequences. We judge reality primarily by what we see. But what we do not see can be more dangerous, more
The Autism Debate: Are Vaccines To Blame? Michelle Ketterman Communications 220 The University of Phoenix Even though families have been awarded money in court because they claim their children developed autism after receiving immunization vaccines, are vaccines truly to blame? There have been many cases of Autism brought into the public eye, through the media, surrounding children who have been diagnosed with Autism. The parents of many of the diagnosed children are pointing the finger of blame at common immunization vaccinations against infectious diseases; such as the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine given to most children during the first two years of life. Is it possible that immunizations, such as the MMR, are
