People do use religious and opinionated excuses to prevent their children from becoming vaccinated. Parents and guardians believe myths and Facebook posts instead of well educated doctors to determine if their child should be vaccinated. This is a huge mistake! By not vaccinating your children properly you are not only putting them at risk, but the people around them that they encounter daily (CDC). Parents should not be able to make up an uneducated excuse to keep their children from being properly vaccinated.
Vaccines are made from all different ingredients and if a concern parent is involved in vaccinations then the parent should know everything about the vaccination. For example if a child has a allergic reaction to the shot but does not cause autism, he just gets light headed or a few bumps then maybe those are side effects. Side effects are better because the child may feel ill for a few days but that does not mean he will have autism or some form of it Nelson states the “WHO and other aid organizations helped to drive home the necessity of controlling diseases in developing countries” (Nelson 712). The World Health Organization controls the diseases and tries to not cause autism to children. Scientist also study the rates and ratios on vaccines too.
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).
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.
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
i favor the collective ideas of a collective responsibility and how everyone is accountable as a group. This vaccine should be mandatory because it stops a life-threatening disease and if there is a way to stop an outbreak and stop kids from dying way too soon from a treatable virus i think we need to take action to ensure the safety of the nation. i know that still many people are hung up on the idea that the vaccination can cause autism,however this is still not the case. future generations need to be protected and to make sure this is possible everyone needs to protect their child. however, an exception i will make is if someone is heavily religous they may choose to not vaccinate their childern, this is because people still have freedom of religon protected by Cabdas charter of rights of freedoms, but if there is still to many deaths among candaians rules may need to more strict for the saftly of
ABSTRACT Vaccination is an artificial method of creating immunization to certain disease. Although vaccines are assumed safe, they have been associated with numerous health hazards. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program compensates people injured by vaccines. Under the new law which is going into effect July 1, 2016, children are banned from private and public school unless they meet the vaccination requirements. Some uncommon facts regarding vaccines are presented.
Within the topic of immunizations, I have decided to focus on the effects that immunizations are having on children 's immune system. My working thesis states that many more children are not being immunized, which could be a contributing to the increase in disease that we haven 't seen in years. Immunizations are the process by which doctors introduce an immunity to children through a series of vaccinations. Vaccinations are small injections of a particular stimulant to fight against the disease. Within my research, i 'm looking to prove that when people choose not to vaccinate their children that they are endangering their children and possibly other children around them.
To this day though, Smallpox is the only disease to be eradicated by vaccination. The scientist behind the smallpox vaccine was named Edward Jenner. This vaccine was introduced in 1796 and it was the first successful vaccine to be developed. Edward observed that milkmaids who previously had caught cowpox did not catch smallpox and showed that inoculated vaccinia protected against inoculated variola virus. This information plus tons
He also failed to collect data systematically or completely. There has also never been any evidence supporting his claim of peptides traveling from intestine to brain. Several studies have disproved the relation between MMR vaccines and ASD. Wakefield lost his medical license after it was determined that, “His research was unethically financed and ‘fraudulent‘ by The British Medical Journal. Westfield has become one of the most reviled doctors of all time, blamed for starting a panic causing childhood diseases that were thought to be eradicated to reemerge and take young lives.
This culture intertwines with the social development of this country as people are choosing to follow their own choices. Today, many parents reject vaccines as they are concerned that vaccines can cause autism, a belief that originated with a now-discredited 1998 study. In 2010, a study found that “Nearly 40% of parents of toddlers have skipped or delayed a childhood vaccination”(Breslow). The percentage of these anti-vaccinators were raised due to the promotion of this rejected study. California is the top of these measles cases as it is “one of 20 states that allow parents to skip vaccination based on their personal, philosophical belief”(Harris, Popovich, and Powell).
When Americans gave the indians blankets laced with Polio, most of the indians died because they were not immune to the virus like the Americans were. The science behind this shows that every human has T cells and B cells. When the vaccine is administered, the T cell tell the B cell to grab onto the live virus, then the B cells make a copy of the virus to put into a “book” produced by the T cells. After the vaccine has done its job, the human body will remember that gene and the body 's defense mechanisms will fight off the virus so the body does not get sick. After a parent see’s the scientific evidence of the human body 's need for vaccines it should be very difficult for the parent to deny their child what they need.
