Those who oppose infant vaccinations believe that they cause a host of chronic, incurable, and life threatening diseases. To start off with the most debatable issue which is that mercury found in vaccines as a preservative leads to autistic spectrum disorders especially since it is given to infants at critical developing periods. According to a study, mercury levels are decreasing in the blood after being given the shot, thus believing that vaccines containing thimerosal which is an organomecury compound are safe to use (Pichichero et al, 2000).

One main factor that makes the vaccines safe is the ingredients used. While used in large quantities, thimerosal, formaldehyde, and aluminum can be dangerous but scientist have lowered the dosage to a healthy form. Along with using safe ingredients, each vaccine has to be tested up to 10 years or more before they are licensed. Then they are monitored by the CDC and FDA before ever using them on patients.

Qn2. As a public health practitioner; the ethical theory that suits and most times I will employ in my practice is utilitarianism. In utilitarianism or consequentialists like public health practitioners believes in the common good for the majority of the population regardless of harm that might be caused to a few e.g. a few cases of paralysis realized after a mass vaccination with oral polio vaccine cannot rule out the fact that a million others have been saved from the same exercise and therefore stopping the exercise is neglect of duty. The approach could lead to harm to some individuals as describe above however the overall objective is maximum benefit.
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).
