According to the World Health Organization, there are 25 vaccine preventable diseases, 2.5 million child lives saved by vaccinations and 0 linked casualties from vaccinations. Good morning everyone, my name is Nihad and today I will be talking about the dangers of the anti vaccination movement and I hope by the end of this speech, you will be persuaded to get immunized and in turn safeguard the health of the future generations. After vaccinations have been introduced, several disease incidences have been controlled and some fatal illnesses have been completely eradicated; an advancement that is currently under threat due to the anti vaccination movement. According to Alexandra Le Tellier from the LA Times, 1/3rd of kindergarteners are not up to date with their vaccinations. Different to what you may think, the numbers are …show more content…
One of the 3 elementary schools in Malibu California reported that 42% of its students have not taken all the required vaccines. Since autism has been wrongly linked to inoculation, the anti inoculation movement grew in all corners of the world and since then, many parents have chosen not to inoculate their children. It is premature and irresponsible to assume that autism is directly caused by vaccination when this condition can affect people who have not been vaccinated. To better understand the anti vaccination movement and the importance of vaccinations, I will explain how the movement started, how their claims are faulty and discuss facts on non vaccination. First, let 's take a look at how it started. It all started when certain parents started to claim that they had noticed a change in the behavioral pattern in their children got their immunization for MMR which stands for Measles, Mumps and Rubella, also commonly known as the Triple Vaccine. These claims have not been proven
In his book, Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All, Paul A. Offit, M.D. presents us with a thoroughly in-depth look behind the veil of the vaccine controversy. Specifically here in the United States. Offit starts us off with the history of vaccinations giving insights into not just their creation but the controversy that has surrounded them since the beginning. We learn how these questions around safety and personal rights started and who have been the major decision makers in history. We hear about the groups and people that support vaccinations and those that do not.
Are you scared of needles? Have you ever tried to convince your mom not to make you get a flu shot? I’m here to answer all your questions on why or why not you should get a flu shot. Most kids would like to believe that flu shots are bad for you, or that flu shots will lead you to get the flu. Although you might think it has happened to you, the truth is that flu shots do not cause you to get the flu.
Vaccination Nation is about the controversy of vaccinations causing autism. The United States federal court denied any link between autism and vaccines, more specifically the MMR vaccine. Vaccines causing autism has been the talk on news, celebrities and magazines. Despite scientist denying that there is no connection this topic has gained several legal claims against vaccines. This has led parents into panic about autism.
Summary and Reflection on The Panic Virus Amid the ongoing dispute that links vaccines with autism, Seth Mnookin has published The Panic Virus in 2011. Due to what must be the success of the book, the author has re-published the book with an afterword in 2012. The book’s purpose is to provide perception of the truth using scientific facts and evidence. The author’s curiosity and interest in the issue grew after the realization of the suspicion of his friends toward the medical establishment and instead rely on journalism and media.
The number of people who choose not to immunize is steadily increasing, and has been on the rise since the 1980 's. Should children’s health be at risk for the greater good of community health? The news today is full of tragic stories about complications of vaccine use and there have been injuries from the beginning of vaccine use due to incomplete data on the side effects. The injuries have also brought about changes in the way vaccines are manufactured. The only way to get around the vaccine is to claim religious or medical exception.
Problem Immunization is the process when an individual is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, normally through vaccination (WHO, 2015). Individuals of all ages should receive a shot in order to better protect themselves and the individuals around them. In 1809, Massachusetts became the first state in the nation to require an immunization policy, since then the entire nation now has federal policies implementing vaccinations to protect the public health (Martindale-Hubbell, 2015). However, these policies are typically generated for the younger generation of the population. Federal Immunization policies in the United States are implemented solely to ensure the safety of oneself and the society as a whole.
To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? That is the question. Vaccination has sparked heated debate since its development amongst the following groups; parents, naturopaths, medical professionals, etc. Fuel has been added to the fire of the vaccine debate by the media and anti-vaxxer fear mongering tactics, making it hard for those considering vaccination, to decipher fact from myth. It is vital that we first understand the facts rather than believing the latest rumor before making an informed decision to vaccinate or not.
Due to some diseases that have taken thousands of children's lives, vaccines have eliminated diseases completely and others are close to being extinct too. In the article, “Five Important Reasons to Vaccinate Your Child,” the Department of Health and Human Services takes a firm stand on the importance of getting a child vaccinated and how it can potentially save the lives of thousands of children in the United States. The Department of Health and Human Services believes that vaccines will save children’s lives. The article states, while some people choose not to vaccinate their children because of possible side effects that are associated with them or the harmful ingredients that are in the vaccine, that is minor compared to the actual disease they are protecting against. The Department of Health and Human Services argues that vaccines are safe and effective.
Sorry for not writing earlier but Stephanie's right about how we need to connect the issue with topics talked about in class. If you guys think children's diabetes has enough information we can talk about I'm fine with the topic, but if you want a suggestion maybe we can talk about the anti-vaccination movement. We can describe how it's started by the media and changes the attitudes of the parents, and when children get sick it isn't usually the richer kids getting sick but the poor who cannot afford the help needed. But I'm fine with whatever topic we pick as long as we can talk about it fairly easily.
Many people may think that vaccination is a bad thing, that instead of preventing it causes illness, that is not natural. Natural or not, there are many reasons as to why we should vaccinate us and the younger generation. Most of the time children don’t like vaccination because it hurt, but is the responsibility of a parent to seek the wellbeing of his or her child. Vaccination it’s a preventive measure of various diseases. Unfortunately, things like the anti-vaccination movement, the misinformation on the Internet, and the believe that vaccination causes more damage than is worth, have led our society to think that it’s right not to vaccinate.
Vaccinations When it comes to vaccinations, there are many different opinions on immunizing a child, especially when that child’s parent has a strong like or dislike towards vaccinating. Immunizations have existed for at least a thousand years and as technology advances more, there are new vaccines being designed to help protect our children from contracting contagious and sometimes deadly diseases, such as Bordetella pertussis, polio, and even influenza. For decades, all 50 states have required that parents vaccinate their children against various diseases, including polio and measles, as a prerequisite to enrolling them in public schools (Ciolli, 2008). Enrollment in public school requires up to date vaccinations in order to protect the children and even the adults from contracting and spreading a disease, possibly causing an epidemic.
Unfortunately, the anti-vaccination movement is becoming increasingly popular due to individuals’ unfounded fears and imagined consequences associated with the idea of purposely inserting a disease into one’s body. However, despite one’s beliefs, vaccines are essential not only to a person’s well-being, but to the health of those around them. Mandatory vaccinations do not cause autism; rather, they save lives while upholding values of
News Flash! Recent outbreaks of what the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) call vaccine-preventable diseases demonstrate the effects of the anti-vaccination movement. “Antivaxxers” as they’ve come to be called, as noticed on this author's Facebook page, are a population of parents who make a conscious decision not to vaccinate their children. The goal of this paper is to shed some light on the Antivaxxers, their arguments for choosing not to vaccinate their children, and research that proves the Antivaxxers’ theories are wrong. After all, vaccines aren’t something to be concerned about, they are proven to be effective.
