Vaccinating your child seems to be the question of the decade for many parents and families. Typically, parents usually follow their doctors advice and automatically get their children vaccinated. But now, almost every parent has heard these concerning and alarming side effects that may accompany vaccinations. Faced with conflicting information, there are many questions that arise from these concerns and parents do not want their children to catch any crucial illness but are also concerned about the risk and side affects of vaccines. Challengers have claimed that vaccines do not work, that they are or may be dangerous, or that mandatory vaccinations violate individual rights or religious principles.
This paper was the beginning of over a decade of parents who feared that vaccinating children would lead to autism. During this time some parents chose not to vaccinate and this is now affecting our public health. Not all children can be vaccinated. Some children have immune deficiencies, like cancer, which prevent them from getting vaccines. Other children are too young to be vaccinated.
Even if your child is vaccinated, could you... ... middle of paper ... ...’t aware of an issue of unvaccinated children into the mix, leading to people believing that vaccines may cause autism. Recalling a few years ago, this was on news stations reporting on Jenny and her son’s autism, if that could change my mind on vaccines, its possible that other peoples have opinions has wavered, also. Cognitive Dissonance would be the most likely theory for what these parents choose for their families. They want to be heard; they don’t feel comfortable with vaccines given to babies and feel like it will lead to sickness in the future. Despite doctors and scientist telling them it will make children more at risk of contracting something in the near future.
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.
Vaccination Against Infectious Diseases Vaccines are one of the most controversial topics in modern medicine and will continue to attract more attention in the years ahead. Most new parents dutifully take their babies to their doctor to be vaccinated, at the prescribed times. However, over the last few decades, there have been several scares concerning vaccinations, and the possible side effects of them. Some parents have refused to have their child vaccinated because of some of these scares, and the truth is, they have been blown out of proportion by the press and it can be very confusing for the general public. In order to balance this extraordinary influence, parents will need to make a well informed decision about vaccines for their children.
However, in the United States it is a different version, where parents demand their children not to be vaccinated. Vaccines are readily available to people, yet they refuse for many different reasons. Most of the reasons given for not vaccinating children are because of religious reasons, forgetfulness, moral beliefs, monetary issues and the theory that vaccines cause other health related issues, such as autism. The United States have been privileged with support from the government to vaccinate all people who requested to be vaccinated against preventable diseases. Many people around the world are powerless in getting vaccinated and most die due to lack of healthcare and availability of vaccines.
Without vaccines, there would be many little children running around sick. Diseases can be very painful and sometimes deadly, this is why children get vaccinated, so they do not have to worry about catching a disease and dealing with the symptoms. Some parents prefer not to vaccinate their child, because they are misinformed on the vaccines or see bad things on social media about it. The truth is they are just putting their child in danger by not getting them vaccinated. An instance that was recorded by the National Network for Immunization stated that, “A couple in Tennessee, confused about vaccines safety because of what they read on the internet, decided to delay their daughter’s vaccinations.
Why the vaccine refusals reject to get vaccine to their children? How do the medical care workers correspond to reduce the vaccine refusals? Researching my claim that parents should not be allowed to refuse vaccination because vaccinating prevents the spread of infectious diseases has given me a better understanding of the cause of the vaccine refusals. I hope this research paper will be useful when I became a medical
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.
Vaccinations prevent deadly diseases from spreading but if parents neglect to immunize their child they are at a greater risk of contracting a fatal disease and spreading it to other people. Other parents who neglect vaccinations do so in fear that their child will fall ill or develop autism because of important diseases but there is an extensive amount of safety and care that goes into vaccines before they are released to the public ensuring they are safe for use. Another problem that could occur due to parents refusing vaccination is fatal diseases of the past could rise again causing mass death and illness of others. Immunization has affected the world in many different ways, it has protected new youth and has saved the lives of many generations. Without vaccination, the world population would drop significantly.
