Disneyland, also known as the happiest place on Earth, has recently been the considered one of the most dangerous places on Earth for those that have not received a measles vaccination. A measles outbreak had swept across the park only months ago, causing many unvaccinated individuals and those too young to be vaccinated to contract the awful sickness. Also, the individuals who became sick returned home and began to spread the germ in their towns and cities. The measles vaccine is proven to be extremely effective, so if parents had made the decision of vaccinating their children, the outbreak could have easily been prevented. Measles is one of many diseases that are preventable with immunizations, yet some individuals refuse to cooperate.
Polio: An American Story by David M. Oshinsky describes the stories of how polio was triumphed.

Polio was always an issue in the early 20th century in the United States, with cases numbering the ten
The flu vaccine has claimed many lives over the past year.The CDC states that”There is a risk that respiratory illness in young kids and old people when they got a flu shot”.People that get the respiratory illness have a bad chance that they won’t survive killing thousands each year.In addition, the article “Why are so many healthy people are dying of the flu vaccine” Dr.Mark Geier(Genetisit and a professor at John Hopkins University) explains how this flu vaccine is more like an expirement than curing people .Therefore it proves that flu vaccines kill lots of people each year. The flu vaccine is a very controversial topic here in the United States. Flu vaccines kill and gives us extra diseases.Although getting a flu shot will protect you it is not very effective and it cause more disease that you don 't want to have in your body.If we do not stop using flu vaccines we might have more cases of GBS and loads of other diseases caused by the flu shot.When people realize all the bad stuff happening people we will take action against the flu
Vaccinations are an important part of healthcare in Frisco, TX. No matter what you’ve heard in the news lately about the “danger” of common vaccines, especially for children, they save lives. At this time of year, vaccinations against the flu are critical for the very young, the very old and those people who have compromised immune systems. Why You Should Get A Flu Shot Influenza is no joke; it’s a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, from 1976 to 2007, influenza-associated deaths ranged from about 3,400 per year to about 49,000 per year.
I learned the importance of the vaccines, that it is much more beneficial than it is harmful. Therefore, opting out of vaccine comes with a lot of risks and threats that parents should take into consideration. Those who are affected are children, if not immediately in the long run. For example, skipping on the HPV vaccination during the allowed age range can cause an individual to develop cervical cancer after being in contact with HPV. I am now more than ever for the idea of
Vaccination, How It started “In 1790’s, Edward Jenner’s an English doctor, first to study and report the effects of the use of cowpox vaccination to prevent smallpox” (History of vaccines, 2005). Smallpox was believed to have existed way back in ancient times, from the time of the pharaoh through the Roman Empire and up to the present. It has caused the death of hundreds and thousands of people in the 1800’s. Dr. Edward Jenner was alarmed with the rising of death in Europe, started his experiment by taking a pus sample of the cowpox virus of an infected cow and injected it to another infected cow and after sometime, the cow survived. Then he asked permission from the parents of the child who was infected with smallpox and tried injecting
Tom Geisbert- Tom Geisbert was used to show the discovery and threat of Ebola. Tom is the first to discover the strain Ebola Reston which is threatening the population of Washington D.C. and the United States. Tom is not only the first to discover the strain, but accidently smells it, creating suspense for his possible death. Nancy Jaax- Nancy Jaax is a major focus in The Hot Zone story as it somewhat revolves around her and her family. Nancy is an employee at USAMRIID when the Ebola Reston virus breaks out.
As Jimmy states, “It’s a worldwide plague! It’s the Red Death! What’s this about it being in the BlyssPluss Pills?” (326). Becoming clear as day the disease continues to grow even with the ‘help’ of the companies and their vaccines/drugs. Whether it be for money, a ‘superior’ world, simply experimental base, or other, the constant wonder is now focused on questioning why the companies chose to inject the ‘cure pills’ with the virus.
Epidemics such as infection and disease were a huge contributor to the many deaths in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Diseases spread like wildfire throughout the United States with no intentions of stopping. However, the introduction of a procedure called sterilization quickly led to the downward spiral of disease and infection. Since sterilization was invented diseases were less likely to be contracted and the immune system became stronger than ever. Joseph Lister, Louis Pasteur, and Robert Koch were the major scientists who helped with the making of these improvements in the medical field.
Indeed, some have called this controversy “the most significant setback for the cause of immunization since the smallpox vaccine debates of the previous century” (Baker, 4003). The paper’s publication, coupled with the fact that the pertussis vaccination at the time contained bacterial cells and was considered retrogenic, which lead to a widespread fear amongst parents. The United Kingdom’s Department of Health and Social Security found the pertussis vaccine to be particularly harmful to infants less than six months of age, well below the age at which the DTP immunization was being administered at the time (1981). Thus, it was not those children that received the vaccination that received the benefit of the immunization, but rather it was the younger infants that older children might be in contact with that were benefitted because of the provided herd immunity. The very serious complications thought to be associated with pertussis vaccine therefore seemed too risky to many parents who felt that their children were being put at risk for the sake of protecting someone
