The reason why the push for mandatory vaccines by politicians is because of the studies done after experiments were conducted on volunteers. No side effects were found in patients involved in the 2006 study done by Merck, the manufacture for the HPV vaccine. Politicians therefor conclude that the vaccines can only help and making them mandatory will eventually lead to entire diseases being eradicated. Because politicians want to make vaccines mandatory for infants and teenagers, they are by default placed in the at risk group. Parents don’t want to think that their children might or have the potential for engaging in risky behavior that could put them at risk for contracting sexually transmitted diseases.
People who argue that vaccines cause autism and there isn’t a risk to not vaccinate their children ignores the fact that many diseases are prevented by the vaccines. According to Spector vaccines helps save lives in the United States; “seventeen thousand people would have been left retarded and five thousand would have died” (14). These numbers shows clearly that the vaccines helps humans and it control and get rid of most diseases, and the vaccines are worth the risks. Even if these numbers were presented to the people who believes that vaccines cause autism they would still find justification to deny
There are many parents in Australia that don’t what their kids to get vaccinated either because they don’t think it is safe or it is just not natural. But they should listen to the doctors and get their children vaccinated. The amount of children, from September and December in 2015 and May and June in 2016, vaccinated is around 93% between the ages of 12 to 15 months. If children don’t get vaccinated they could die from different diseases and viruses. The parents think they are doing good for their children but they are decreasing the chances of their child surviving of sicknesses it also helps the virus from spreading because all they would all be immune to if all parents agreed with it.
1. With the virus that doesn’t match, a person is still more protected than a person without the vaccine, as stated in a CNN report in December of 2014 on the effectiveness of mutated viruses. 2. Secondly, a yearly vaccine is important because our immune response to the virus weakens over time [Transition: Everyone is at risk for the flu, especially children] II. How the flu affects children A.
Even though some parents are concerned over the safety of vaccines, children who go to public schools should not be granted exemptions because vaccines are necessary to prevent outbreaks, children who do not receive vaccines are at risk of disease, and medically compromised children rely on vaccines to prevent disease. 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).
This is why youths shouldn’t play football. Some say kids should be allowed to play football even though there is risk of concussions. Youths are very susceptible to concussions so they should not be allowed to play football. The number of kids in emergency rooms because of concussions has gone up. “Between 2001 and 2009, the number of kids under 19 visiting emergency rooms for concussions each year increased by 62 percent.” (Source #1,pg.1) More evidence states that, “...Pee Wee and Pop Warner players sustain from 240 to 585 head hits per season between ages 9 and 12, a critical period of brain development.”(Source #2,pg.4) This supports the claim that kids should not be able to play football because it is very dangerous and risky.
Modern medicine provides people with the ability to protect themselves from the world’s most fatal diseases. Merely a century ago, it was not uncommon for a child to die as a result of diseases such as polio, pertussis, and tuberculosis. Today, it is highly unlikely for a person to contract these diseases, let alone die from them. However, refusal of vaccinations has been increasing throughout the years due to the anti-vaccination movement. This movement declares mandatory vaccines unconstitutional and vaccinations overall as the cause of autism.
Larzelere uses research that has been conducted so far just proves the fact that the child was spanked as punishment and not whether the parent did it appropriately. He compares this to radiation treatments being given, ignoring dosage, and types of cancer. Cancer is obviously a topic that can pull almost any bodies heart strings. Another example he uses is the fact that many people who do not support spanking say that spanking causes the child to be more aggressive. He states that this may be true, but it could happen with any disciplinary action saying “people who received radiation treatment last year are more likely to have cancer-related problems this year than all of us who did not need radiation treatments last year”.
The strangest part of all this was that even after 100 days of being released from the hospital, the virus was still attacking his eyes, thankfully he could not pass the virus through mellow contact. It is unclear how the virus is able to remain unseen in particular parts of the body without being identified by the immune system. Crozier hopes that doctors will develop ways to diagnose and treat people who have post-Ebola symptoms and I agree because people need to be helped especially those who have conquered this horrendous virus.
The article by Diana Palmer and Howard Bauchner discusses and compares the opinions and concerns that both parents and pediatricians have about antibiotics. The argument made was that parents are sometimes not knowledgeable about antibiotics and pressure pediatricians to unnecessarily prescribe antibiotics. However, Palmer and Bauchner believe that by educating the parents through proper communication between pediatrician and patient the proper prescription of antibiotics will increase. The assertion is backed by research done in Massachusetts, where a four hundred patient survey was concluded from both private practices and a public healthcare center and a survey answered by sixty-one pediatrics. The research discovered that parents do have
