Many parents feel that their kids get so many shots now a day compared to the when they were children. Even though this may seem accurate because a lot of vaccines are broken up, there is no evidence supporting this claim. Kids may receive more shots, but they are twice as protected against a variety of diseases compared to when the parents were kids. Furthermore, “It’s not the number of shots that matters; it's what's in them. Antigens are the viral or bacterial components of a vaccine that induce the immune system to build up antibodies and fight future infections.
The decline in the disease has been attributed to vaccinations and their high success rate. According to ‘Childhood Vaccinations are Important for Public Health”, “by vaccinating we will make sure these 14 diseases will not become everyday events for our children...”. There are quite a few reasons why parents do not vaccinate their children. Some believe that it will cause harm to their children because of rumors. Vaccinations are not as dangerous as people make them seem, but not getting vaccinated is.
Many parents ask, are vaccines safe for my child? I am one of those parents but the more research that I have done, has put wondering thoughts to rest. Many parents believe that vaccinations are linked to the causes of autism, multiple sclerosis, asthma and many other health problems. Although many parents have legitimate reasoning to not have their children receive vaccines, there are more pros than cons to receiving the vaccines. In rare cases children have became sick after immunizations, some life threatening.
And if a child were still to get the disease after they are vaccinated, the symptoms would normally be way less serious than the symptoms in a child that didn’t get vaccinated. Why would parents opt against getting their child’s vaccinations, even in the face of the measles outbreak that has sickened more than 102 people in 14 states? Simply because trust in the government or the lack thereof and also misinformation. Your pediatrician believes that your children need to receive all of the recommended vaccines. Although sitting there through your child’s vaccination meltdown can be just as painful for you as it is them and the fear of these routine vaccines doing more harm than good, choosing to vaccinate children has led to 93% to 100% elimination of many childhood diseases in the U.S. (Vaccines.gov).
Vaccines: The Risks and Benefits Vaccines have been the topic of many debates and have made many people around the world question whether they are safe to use or just another danger to health. People choose to use vaccines for the welfare of their loved ones but others believe that the risk is more than not using vaccines at all. These immunization shots have various uses regarding our health but are also avoided by a select few because of the number of flaws that are seen. The differing views of vaccines have allot to do with perspective and reasoning. Vaccines are injections that introduce a dead microbe of a disease.
he Benefits Outweigh the Risk One of the greatest public health accomplishments in the 20th century was the vaccination, yet people are choosing to not use them. Because vaccination rates are dropping, children are losing their life to vaccine-preventable disease. There are many negative situations that a parent does not have control over in their child’s life, but parents are purposely putting their child in harms way by not vaccinating. If a parent chooses not to vaccinate a child, that is child neglect. Child neglect is when a parent, guardian, or caretaker continually fails to give the child the best possible care.
While vaccines will help each individual, it will also contribute to the future health of the generations to come. In the US, vaccines have reduced or eliminated many infectious diseases that once routinely killed or harmed many infants, children, and adults. That effect is greatly caused by the fact that more and more people are choosing to get vaccinated. Vaccines have eradicated Polio and smallpox along with other diseases. The last case of smallpox in the United States was in 1948; the last case in the world was 1977 in Somalia.
Children with leukemia are advised not to take the oral polio vaccine because they are at greater risk of developing the disease. Vaccines which do not include a live virus or bacteria tend to be safer, but their protection may not be as great” (immunization1). It is important to understand the needs of each individual child when considering vaccines, also talking with a doctor before is recommended. If immune deficiency is not the case, the child will be just fine and protected for the
Many studies have been lead to show that autism is not caused by vaccines. Therefore, if a parent is considering not vaccinating a child due to this reason, then they need to reconsider. However, it is understandable that a parent is simply taking precautions and thinking of what is best for their child. These lies about autism and vaccines should be put to rest in order to continue the successful avoidance of vaccine-preventable diseases. Many fibs of the side effects of vaccines are always being told; however, a frequent concern of vaccines causing autism has been refuted.
Mumps, Measles, Whooping Cough, Smallpox, Polio and, Diphtheria are all deadly diseases that were once a death sentence to children and adults around the world, but there is something that can help combat these fatal diseases. Vaccinations can change the course of these lethal diseases, but some families are still refusing to vaccinate the future of the world. Vaccinations can not only be beneficial to the child itself but to rest of humanity as well. There is evidence that goes against false claims bashing vaccination and the positive effects of vaccination overrule all of the negative. Vaccination can have a positive effect on the world due to its life-saving properties, effects on humanity and the extensive amount of safety and care that
