There may be some side effects to some of the vaccinations, but it is not worth risking not vaccinating them. It is unsafe to assume that herd immunity will wipe out the risk of catching the disease as so many parents today are not having their child vaccinated. I feel that it is a good idea that under most circumstances, vaccination against infectious diseases should be made compulsory for all children. In a situation when a child is more likely to react very badly to a particular vaccine, alternative methods could be used. But I feel it important that children of today are all immunised so that, in the future, hopefully, such diseases would not be a threat to the children of tomorrow.
While some parents are convinced that vaccines have been invented to prevent the human-to-human transmitted diseases, which otherwise can have serious health consequences on children and adults, other parents are certain that it is the vaccines themselves that pose a risk to their children’s health. Both have reasons to believe what they do. It has been known that ever since the vaccines for diseases like diphtheria and measles were introduced in the twentieth century, the number of deaths related to these diseases decreased by more than 500 percent1. On the other hand, the mid-twentieth century was also the time when such signs as nutrition, sanitation and healthcare, and other important factors of spreading vaccine-preventable diseases have been greatly improved.

Another consequence of compulsory vaccination is the allergy reactions to certain ingredients a person may have. Compulsory vaccinations would require people to provide proof of their allergies and if there is none, they are obligated to receive vaccinations. Some allergy reactions to vaccines may be severe. It is unfair to put a person’s life or health at risk simply because they were forced to accept vaccinations. Making decisions about vaccinations should be an individual’s choice as

Almost every parent has heard these concerning and alarming side effects that accompany vaccinations and some wonder are vaccinations even 100% effective? The obvious truth is, without vaccines, epidemics of vaccine-preventable diseases would return like measles and rubella. Although they may not be 100% effective, they still offer outstanding protection and without them, we can expect society to be like it was years ago and we would suffer from the diseases of our grandparents as we have slowly seen recently through the media.
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).
Two sides to every argument exist. The argument is whether to vaccinate children or not. Most parents vaccinate their children because they want to protect their children against preventable diseases. Others do not vaccinate their children because they want to protect them from the diseases the vaccine causes. At times it may be difficult to determine whether or not to vaccinate children.

There are vaccines that have eliminated poliomyelitis in America; and has controlled measles, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, and other infectious diseases.
I still disagree to the people who would not vaccinate their child or themselves. By not doing this you are bringing a bigger danger into your life. Yes the consequences are harsh but you will be keeping yourself clean but getting rid of these harsh decease's. There have been many arguments about if people should or should not get vaccinated. Vaccines have its pro's and con's.
Vaccines Recently the number of parents who are intentionally delaying their children’s general vaccinations is increasing. The controversy that is causing the number of delayed vaccinations to go up is based on the fact that there are negative articles connecting them to autism and other similar diseases. When parents are researching vaccinations and they read those negative articles, those articles make them believe that vaccines cause autism. Vaccines are important because they protect humans from preventable diseases and getting them could save human lives. Vaccines are important throughout life no matter what some research suggests.
Vaccines have the possibility of protecting people from infectious diseases and viruses. Some do not agree to vaccinate. Even though some are hesitant when considering vaccines because of perceived fears, everyone should receive vaccines to protect themselves from the harmful viruses and diseases, because scientists have provided information proving their safety, vaccines are able to protect people from viruses and diseases, and there are many benefits of vaccinations. Vaccinations have benefits to protect people from harmful diseases and viruses. Many people are cautious when considering vaccinations since one's health is important.
