By making vaccines mandatory, community immunity will increase and become successful, making it very difficult to be struck with a virus. Community immunity is the idea that if a large percentage of people in an area are vaccinated, it is unlikely for a disease outbreak to occur. As said by Karen Kaplan, Contact reporter of LA times, “Using some simple math, a team of infectious disease experts calculated that the vaccination rate among people who were exposed to the measles during the outbreak was no higher than 86%, and it might have been as low as 50%.In order to establish herd immunity, between 96% and 99% of the population must be vaccinated, experts say.” This alludes to the necessity to get more people vaccinated, in attempts to increase the community immunity. If the herd immunity was higher at the time of the Measles
The United States is trying to create a worldwide immunity against diseases that are easily preventable by making it required. It protects children from getting sick. Many misleading accusations were said like how vaccinations are dangerous and can cause autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), diabetes, etc.. That is not true. They have no relationship towards vaccines. A child got autism and his mother assumed it was because of the vaccination he recently got, but it was not true.
However, a baby is unable to give consent, and therefore, the parents act as the intermediate to the doctors and give consent for the donation. As the parents of the child, the parents would seek to act for what is best for the child. When a child does not want a vaccination or to go to the dentist, the child refuses. However, the parents still force the child to receive the vaccination and go to the dentist because there are beneficial effects that come from the small amount of pain they will experience. A parent’s consent for a bone marrow donation of a potential child stems from similar reasoning.
Vaccines in Children Argument Since the first smallpox vaccine was invented over two decades ago, there has been endless arguments over the safety, effectiveness, and morality of vaccinating children. On the off chance that an unvaccinated child is presented to an infectious germ, the child 's body may not be sufficiently able to battle the sickness. Before immunizations, numerous kids passed on from infections that antibodies now forestall, for example, whooping cough, measles, and polio. Those same infections are around today; however, you don’t come across them as much due to vaccinations. “The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that 732,000 American children were saved from death and 322 million cases of childhood illnesses were
I strongly believe if your child has not been vaccinated they shouldn’t be allowed into the school system due to the increase risk of my older nephew who has full immunizations to bring home horrible diseases to his younger brother who is not fully vaccinated yet. The fact is that multiple studies done by non-pharmaceutical affiliated organizations have proved that there is no link between vaccinations and illnesses such as autism (CDC, 2015). Herd immunity is when critical portions of society are immunized against a contagious disease so that there is little chance that the disease may re-emerge and effect members of the community who may not be able to get vaccinated (Vaccine.gov, 2016). Outbreaks of certain diseases occur when the critical number of people needed to have herd immunity drops. There are many reasons people choose not to vaccinate or to slow down the vaccination schedule.
The importance of vaccines is to protect people from getting serious illnesses. You start getting vaccines a couple weeks after you’re born and get them every couple of years until you die. Vaccines are very important for young people who have weak immune systems and can’t protect themselves. People with weak immune systems are more likely to get serious illnesses, some of these illnesses can cause death. If you get vaccinations you are less likely to get these illnesses but just because you have the vaccine does not mean you will not get sick.
If Mill had his say about this argument he would not oppose limiting the liberty of choice when it comes to Mandatory Vaccination program for two main reasons that are presented in his Liberty Principle. First, the fact that not being vaccinated may well cause harm to others, children who did not meet the age for their vaccination, as it was claimed by physicians in the PBS documentary. The second reason is the fact that most of these vaccinations are given to children who are clearly not adults. According to his theory, he is against limiting liberties given to sane adults. Mills Liberty serves as a good guide in this moral issue, it can help one critically think about their stand on mandatory vaccination.
It slows the spreading process down almost to extinction. The CDC explains why we vaccinate perfectly, saying that “If we take away the protection given by vaccination, more and more people will become infected and will spread disease to others.” Even putting aside health risks and danger to others, not vaccinating a child can hurt a family economically as well. Not vaccinating your child or yourself
1. Health Video 2 a. I thought it was a very sad thing for the Long family to have lost their son to bullying. It should have never gone that far, perhaps the schools administrators could have done a better job of taking care of the situation. I strongly believe they did a poor job a handling the situation. Perhaps the parents could have pulled their child out of that school to prevent further damage, but things are easier say than done.
This wouldn 't have happened if people were vaccinated, families shouldn 't have to go through the fear of when they discover a disease that may kill their child, they shouldn 't have to go through the pain, grief and loss. Vaccination is not an individual choice, it is a community responsibility, we should take up our part in our community to protect all the children. We should be vaccinated to protect the ones we care about, our family and everyone else in the community. We think that it’s not going to happen to us, but the truth is that, it
