This proves my point in understanding why hospital settings especially require specific vaccinations. As employees, you are making the spread of disease less likely, and you are protecting the world and making it a healthier, safer place. Without mandatory vaccines, the consequences of not taking them would increase, and the rate of disease and spread of disease would jump. With making vaccines a requirement, the disease is not taken lightly, and the chances of the rapid spread are significantly reduced. Vaccines are a safe and effective way to help those who are ill heal by reducing the rapid on spread of disease and increasing the chances of eradicating the disease
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.
Hundreds of thousands of people go to the hospital to seek treatment from severe infections that occur. Good health and hygiene habits can help to prevent the spread of this virus, but every year brings about a new threat for an infection. This is why everyone should get a vaccination
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. This is the aim of this report. Through analytical research presented in this report I have come to the conclusion that vaccines are not only crucial and beneficial but that everyone who is eligible should be vaccinated, as that
This is an ethical and moral duty nurse, added that threatens the health, religion or life of patients who avoid vaccination, other than of philosophical reason, you can protect patients from cross-transmission. Recently Poland Jacobson as you did with other vaccines, e.g., measles, mumps, rubella and varicella is recommended enacting influenza vaccination of HCWs (Healthcare Worker). This view was supported by the mandatory vaccination argue that supporters can be justified in a given moral safety record of the influenza vaccine. In addition, failure, his own, to achieve the required number to despite the 70 percent vaccination rate for employees of the results from Johns Hopkins University Hospital (JHUH) of volunteer programs, senior epidemiologist
Vaccines have and always will be a huge topic. There are different reasons why people do become vaccinated, and there are also reasons of why some people do not believe in being vaccinated. As a medical assistant, we need to be respectful to all our patients. We are not to argue with our patients because of something we think they should have done. We can provide the patient with facts about what has been found about certain diseases and if there is a vaccine available for that disease. If a patient refuses to have a vaccine done, they must sign a waiver. It is important that if we are dealing with a patient who has a different opinion than ours, we must not mention anything that could potentially offend or upset our patients. It is our job
It is important for all people to be vaccinated to protect themselves from contracting communicable diseases, from spreading these diseases, and from the high cost of treating these preventable diseases. It would make sense to do so. No one wants to contract diseases, or be laid up if they can prevent it. Getting vaccinated will prevent anyone from spreading contracted diseases to others. It can also be very costly when trying to treating a communicable disease that could have been prevented with a vaccine. Immunization will prevent you and others from contracting a disease as well as dealing with all the expenses that come along with treating that disease. Everyone should make getting vaccinated a priority for their health and for others.
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) recommend for vaccinations to all health care workers annually against influenza. In my Oncology unit, with immunocompromised patients’ nurses mostly 85% of us are vaccinated for flu, but remaining is supposed to use the mask and when get illness with cold not allowed to take care of such patients. The reasons for not getting the vaccine is the myth that it does not work for them or for some of them believe they do not need. In 2014 to 2015, healthcare workers of 64.3% were immunized where as only 62.9% in 2013-2014. Even among the patients and family the facts about flu vaccine to be explained the flu vaccine cannot cause the flu but it is safe and protects against seasonal influenza viruses, (www.cdc.gov/,2015).
Required Immunity Mandatory vaccinations for children in public schools have been the center of much debate since laws were first developed to regulate immunization. Fears from parents about side effects and adverse reactions have steered many away from wanting to vaccinate their children despite the numerous infectious diseases they prevent. These debates have gotten in the way of progression in schools for preventing the spread of disease. To me, the risks of not vaccinating children are far greater than the risks of adverse reactions.
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.
Discussion 2: Whooping Cough Returns “Childhood vaccines are one of the great triumphs of modern medicine. Indeed, parents whose children are vaccinated no longer have to worry about their child’s death or disability from whooping cough, polio, diphtheria, hepatitis, or a host of other infections.” (Emanuel) Is it conceivable that outbreaks can be prevented with just dispensing a vaccination to our children? Can we eliminate dreadful diseases completely? Why are parents refusing to vaccinate their children? Vaccinations have virtually eradicated some diseases in the United States ever since the turn of the 20th century.
The Community Health Centers HEALTHY CHILD program is devoted to childhood immunizations. Immunizations are the most cost effective prevention program and have the ability to protect from many diseases that can result in hospitalizations, healthcare provider visits, and premature deaths. This program is operated by the Community Health Center (WACHC) which provides health services to the community of Windy Apple, Washington. The HEALTHY CHILD program immunizes 4,000 children a year to protect the health of the community and to ensure that children are vaccinated for school. The HEALTHY CHILD program supports Group Health Community Foundation’s (GHCF) Childhood Immunization Initiative which has given nearly $5 million to public health jurisdictions
Anti-vaxxers have questioned the safety, effectiveness and necessity of vaccinations since the 19th Century. But, what happens when the freedom to choose does not solely affect the life of the individual making the choice? This was made clear in a Law and Order SVU episode, selfish. In this essay, I will argue that the Monica’s choice not to vaccinate her child was morally impermissible at the time. In doing so, I will integrate this week’s readings into the discussion and comment on how my response to the moral impermissibility of Monica’s act informs my view about mandatory vaccination laws and the legal consequences for non-compliant individuals.
Since infants and young children are very vulnerable and lack independence, healthy physical development is dependent on protecting them from outside harms. Vaccines protect not just the child being vaccinated but also other children who may not be vaccinated. Some children cannot receive vaccines due to health conditions, such as child with allergies or a deficient immune system. These children are at risk for catching devastating illnesses when they come in contact with unvaccinated children. When parents have their children vaccinated it is good for the health of both the vaccinated children and other children in the
