Also, it is stated that unvaccinated people should have a harder time to opt out of being vaccinated by having a higher health care cost, higher insurance, and separate activities. All of those are over-exaggerated for this issue because, they all call for the government to intrude into people’s personal lives and not giving people the freedom of their rights. In addition, some people do not get vaccinated because of religious views, but it is stated that they can opt out if their religion is documented. So, what happens to the people that become sick and are not vaccinated and cannot afford health care? They could possibly spread a new disease that vaccinations do not cover and puts vaccinated and people who are not vaccinated at risk.
But the amount of kids that get vaccinated is pretty high it is 93% of kids between 12 to 15 months old which Is good but it still isn’t 100% which isn’t as good as it could be so if we want to stop child deaths from sickness we need to get the percentage of kids getting vaccinated to go up to 100% which need the parents to get their children vaccinated So I think that children should get vaccinated because the kids that don’t get vaccinated have a higher chance of dying for a sickness but the only good thing is 93% of children between the ages of 12 to 15 months and the doctors re trying to get every child to get
When people refuse to get sick they are allowing themselves to be vulnerable to the illness that is going around, and if they get sick they can cause the people around them who have not had a chance to get their shots yet to get sick. The herd immunity thing cannot be relied on, because what if everyone else also relies on herd immunity? Then everyone is not going to get shots, and everyone will be vulnerable to the disease. Also the shots do cause people to get ill for a while because they inject them with the disease, but they only inject them with an amount that their body can handle so that it can learn how to fight it off and become immune to it. Also it is very important for people to get vaccinated, especially if they want to travel or go places because if they do not get vaccinated their immune systems may be prone to get sick very easily.
The increase in the number of diseases in America is becoming problematic due to religious reasoning to not receive vaccinations. This is creating a problem in society because there are some that are not being treated for these diseases and since they aren 't being treated for it, they put others at a large risk of getting the diseases. The parents that choose to not have their child/children vaccination are making it unfair to their child and other children. If someone isn 't vaccinated then they are putting all in society at risk since they aren 't vaccinated.
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.
One of the organizations that feels this way is the United States Health and Human Services. This author has stated, “ Children in the U.S. still get vaccine-preventable diseases. In fact, we have seen resurgences of measles and whooping cough (pertussis) over the past few years. In 2010 the U.S. had over 21,000 cases of whooping cough reported and 26 deaths, most in children younger than 6 months.” With that being stated many families may consider pursuing to get their children vaccinated instead of worrying about these deadly diseases.
If you want to reside on campus at any Florida college or university then you will have to submit proper documentation of your past/present vaccinations. These vaccines should include meningitis, hepatitis B, and MMR. This does not apply to students planning to attend any post-secondary intuition, but lives off campus. They still have to submit vaccination records but it does not include the meningitis vaccine. If more students get vaccinated, then outbreaks on campus will be lower.
In the United States there was a goal to vaccinate all of the children before they reached the age of one (Graham, 20), this main goal was wished for the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. However, the United States never truly had a proper approach when it came to vaccinating (Graham, 20). With the goal straying further and further from reality the United States had decided to completely stop keeping track of how many children were being vaccinated in 1985 (Graham, 20). Once the government gave up then so did the people, more and more parents took the courageous step and stopped vaccinating their children.
If vaccination is mandated, the majority of the human population will be protected from contracting a specific disease. Thus, this will ensure that the disease will be unable to spread, as there is no carrier to facilitate the infection. Mandatory vaccination will also ensure that the general population stays vaccinated. Take measles for example; 16 years ago, the transmission of measles in the U.S was declared over. However, as more parents opt out from getting measles vaccination for their children, outbreaks of measles have been reported across the states of U.S. in the year of
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.
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.
Vaccines are able to prevent disease in a single child, but their usefulness to society lies in their ability to prevent outbreaks. Vaccines prevent disease through the concept of herd immunity. Herd immunity is the idea that a disease will have a harder time spreading if the majority of the population is unable to contract it (Martinez). For example, if more than 90 percent of people are vaccinated against measles, an outbreak is unlikely to happen even if a person in the community is infected (Oster).
The ones who cannot get vaccinations such as “newborn infants, people with vaccine allergies, and [others] with medical conditions”, depend on everyone around them to be vaccinated, so the disease isn’t spread. Would you really want to be the cause of the worsening of an illness just because you didn’t get a
