There is a discussion of mandatory flu vaccinations. Which is compromising the staff autonomy because there aren’t able to make their own choice and do what they want. For the beneficence the staff who are willing to get the vaccination is putting their patients health first. For maleficence the staff who are not willing to get the vaccination have the possibility of putting their patients at risk or anyone they come in contact with. For the justice, there aren’t any federal laws for flu vaccinations because they support the state laws. Some states will have requirements and exemptions for vaccinations. Generally most of the exemptions apply to students and not employees. If there is a hospital policy the exemption won’t apply (Philips, 2015).
The sticker that the influenza vaccine campaign uses " The Flu Stops with U" is an effectiveness advertisement, because it appeals to all ages. The advertisement 's try to explain their purpose, they like to target certain audience, and the persuasive techniques should be clear.
It actually wasn’t even a new argument 100 or 200 years ago. Vaccinations have been a hot topic since their creation in ancient times over a thousand years ago when the Chinese first used inoculation to gain immunity from disease. Inoculation was the first step towards vaccinations. Instead of getting a shot to start an immunity in your body, doctors would take some of the pus from an open wound of someone who had the disease, such as Smallpox, and they would make cuts, usually on your arm, and place the infection inside of those cuts. The person they would take the pus from was usually someone who had a very mild case of the disease they were trying to inoculate the person from.
Often students do not know that the symptoms of meningitis because it seems like nothing more than the flu. The flu is an extremely contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza (7). Because of this, they just ignore the signs, and they do not seek for the treatment (8). For example, one student will have a fever, headaches, and muscle pain and will do nothing about it because he thinks that it is just the flu. Also ignoring the vaccinations that the students should take is a result of less awareness (7)(9).
The “WHO” made sure that vaccinations were safe and secure for curable diseases. Vaccinations can prevent the illness or a person can not get the disease as bad versus people who do not get the vaccinations. Once flu season comes that person will be safe or be a little bit sick, but totally

During the flu season pharmacies, clinics, and hospitals should put up signs in Spanish the important of flu vaccination. Providing handout in Spanish is also a good option for them to learn more about the immunization. In the handout, it can provide the percentage of the Hispanic population receiving influenza immunization and the percentage of serious disease that the population is at risk for. Bilingual posters and medical literature are an important starting point (Juckett, 2013). Patient education is also one of the most important aspects for patient to understand the important of their health.
Most of these controversies are misconceptions. For example, the influenza vaccination is often mistaken to be able to cause someone to get the flu; however, this is not a live vaccine so that is not even possible. They must obtain the flu before they get the vaccine. Since many of the negative thoughts of vaccines are misconceptions many doctors recommend their patients get vaccines, especially their patients with weaker immune systems. Groups of people
The influenza pandemic was devastating among those infected and was responsible for the death of 675,000 Americans and 50 million people all over the world in 1918. As a result of this devastation, vaccines were formulated to prevent future outbreak of deadly and viral diseases, some becoming required by law. However, today many people have decided to boycott any form of vaccination whether it be for their children, or even their pets, due to the modern theory that they may weaken new immune systems. History has proven over time that vaccinations are absolutely effective in preventing dangerous strains of illnesses while saving countless lives since their creation and should be given to all children and at-risk adults.
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.
Vaccines have notoriously been a controversial topic throughout the news world. Mothers and fathers are faced with the decision of whether or not they should vaccinate their children. Depending upon where your children will be attending school, vaccinating may not be a choice but rather a requirement. The country in which you live can also be a key factor as to whether or not vaccines are available. People living in impoverished countries may not have access to vaccines. Due to this lack of access, impoverished countries typically have a much higher prevalence of preventable diseases. Vaccines have a direct impact to the increasing age expectancy throughout the world, which is why I am pro-vaccine.
Have you ever questioned why public schools are making kids get vaccinations? Vaccines are enforced in public schools in order to prevent virus spreading and potential danger. March 4, 1918, it started with an American soldier who reported sick with a flu and hours later hundreds were infected. Known as the “Spanish Flu” or “the epidemic of 1918” it is ranked as one of the most deadliest epidemics and had death tolls higher than that of World War 1. The impact of the epidemic on the 20th Century is that it provided insight on treatment of the flu, created the influenza vaccine, and a controversial topic for further research.
Unfortunately, Bihr is not able to persuade the audience members who hold negative attitudes on vaccinations. The statements by Lillvis, Kirkland, & Frick (2014) and the Pew Research Center (2015) present evidence that audience members do not find vaccines effective and will not change their attitudes, or personal feelings on the topic. Since attitudes are difficult to change, Bihr’s different forms of rational arguments and value of family are unable to alter audience views on the topic. On the other hand, Bihr’s strategies can change the audience’s belief that vaccinations are avoidable, with regards to religious views.
Some examples are that for the past several years we have heard that polio vaccine lead lymphoma and caused the AIDS epidemic, and the MMR vaccine lead to Crohn’s disease and autism. These theories, however have not bothered themselves with facts, that might be fair in the time of chiropractic’s infancy, but now, in the 20th century it is not acceptable. The lack of true information about vaccination is a struggle to the vaccination policy. A research by Kennedy et al. shows that health professionals consider that girls are empowered to make decisions about the HPV vaccine for themselves, some of them decide not to take the vaccine for the lack of information.
