Pro Vaccination Since the invention of vaccines, it has created a huge impact worldwide. As a child begins to start school, their required by the state to receive their twelve routine shots. The children who receive all their shots have a greater chance of not contracting any diseases. Throughout the years, vaccination or otherwise known as immunization has been a hugely controversial issue worldwide and whether or not to vaccinate children. However, vaccines are an effective and key role in keeping the human population healthy and safe.
For over the span of 200 years, millions of deaths in the United States by a severe disease have been prevented due to vaccines distributed by a medical shot. Such a simple prick of a needle, however, is controversial; sparking the debate as to the whether or not vaccinations are healthy. Despite the fact that there are existing arguments
A vaccination is being introduced to the body which will then produce an immunity to a specific disease. While many people think that it’s not harmful to their children if they’re not vaccinated, they’re mistaken. There are many risks of not being vaccinated, which include disabilities and even a higher risk of catching a disease that could’ve been prevented in the first place. Not being vaccinated can sometimes lead to disability problems such as if there was an “Outbreaks of measles, mumps, and whooping cough are occurring around the United States—often among groups of children whose parents have refused to get them vaccinated”(Childhood 1). The side effects of these lead a child to catching pneumonia, inflammation in the brain, swollen and tender salivary glands under the ears and more.
There seems to be more positive impacts of being vaccinated than not being vaccinated. “Vaccines are the best defense we have against serious, preventable and sometimes deadly contagious diseases” (“Vaccines.gov”). There are multiple reasons for getting vaccinated such as avoiding potentially avoidable diseases, protecting the loved ones around you from retracting diseases and simply because no one has time to get sick and miss out on important aspects of life. Vaccines have been proven to prevent outbreaks of diseases (“Vaccines.gov”). An outbreak is a cluster of connected cases in a certain area
It can cause high fever, headache, vomit, muscle ache, and cause respiratory symptoms(a cough, sore throat) Even it seem not to be serious, it already killed millions of people. Firstly, making vaccination mandatory can impact society in positive ways. It impacts the society because fewer people may die from influenza, including lowering the chance that someone may lose people they care about. As American Academy of Pediatrics said, “Vaccines work very well. Millions of children have been protected against serious illnesses because they were immunized.
I agree that children should get vaccinated because they could be safe and the parents wont be worried about their kids. I think if the the children don't get vaccinated they will get the measles. Should parents be required to vaccinate
For example, some parents are reluctant to vaccinate their children against diseases like Hemophilic Influenza if they won’t be attending daycare. While daycares require this vaccine, this deadly disease is a threat to all children, even if they do not attend daycare (Bronfin 3). People who oppose mandatory vaccinations for public school children point out parents concerned with their children being around unvaccinated children could move their child to a private institution requiring immunization (Murphy 2). This reasoning would only add extra stress for families trying to find schools for their children and could cost parents more money than just being able to send their child to a free public school without fear. The next most controversial concern parents have regards the ingredients in some vaccinations.
Mills Liberty serves as a good guide in this moral issue, it can help one critically think about their stand on mandatory vaccination. In conclusion, the idea of mandatory vaccination seems to be a better solution so the choice is not given to parents who do not know enough about the matter and the harm they could cause. This program if implemented can keep away all of the diseases that people have worked hard to eliminate. Mill's hypothetical agreement of limiting this liberty is well supported by reason and can be convincing to those who oppose mandatory vaccination, as long as this Liberty of a choice to vaccinate can cause harm to others, it should be taken
Several religions morally oppose vaccines such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Amish, Judaism and also some members of the Christian faith. “The First Amendment of the US Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”” (“Should Any Vaccines,” 2015). These arguments support the view against mandatory vaccines. These arguments seem valid but the reality is that not all diseases have completely disappeared therefore, vaccinations are still extremely important and viewed as necessary. While some diseases have relatively disappeared, a parent should want their child vaccinated to protect themselves and others, including future generations.
