Introduction Protecting your child’s health is very important, that’s why most parents choose immunsations. Nothing protects children better from 14 serious childhood diseases. This investigation will help to determine the reason to vaccinate children and how not vaccinating can impact on society. A guiding question ‘Do you believe children should be vaccinated’ is to help guide this essay I have three focus questions these include: 1. What are the reasons to vaccinate children? 2. Is Tony Abbott by taking away the Family Tax Benefit from non-vaccinated children’s families going to change the way they think about immunizing? 3. What is the cost on society of non-immunised children? To have evidence for the secondary research the use of survey was undertaken in which 17/17 people responded, answering questions to their best ability. Reasons to be vaccinated Vaccines help to prevent infectious diseases and save lives. Vaccines are responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that were once common in Australia; including Polio, Measles, diphtheria, and Whooping Cough, Rubella, Mumps, Tetanus and Haemophilus Influenza Type B. there are many reasons to vaccinate children, these …show more content…
Not all the people who answered had children, although many responded with reasonable answers. I asked the question of ‘what disease children were being vaccinated with at a 18 month old vaccinations’; this was to determine how many people knew what a child was actually being vaccinatnated for. The correct answer contained the following: Mumps, Measles, Rubella and Varicella (Chickenpox). Only 7 out of 17 people answered this correctly, this just show how many people with or without children know what a children is being protected from. Below is a graph to show the

Petts and Niemeyer explore the controversy debate on what affects people from not getting their children vaccinated. They did a poll on who gets their children vaccinated and who does not get their children vaccinated. One factor Petts and Niemeyer discuss is why people are second guessing getting vaccinations for their children. The media has presented information, which led to false reports, although parents are acting upon these messages in which change their beliefs in vaccinations. Media has since affected the idea of vaccinations, parents are beginning to look into the vaccinations and predict if they will be mandatory or not for their children.
The ‘no jab, no pay policy’ has multiple limitations that can negatively effect the welfare of the children it is attempting to benefit. Before financial incentives are introduced or withdrawn from government policy alternatives policies can be implemented to increase immunization rates. Asymmetric information is key to sound economic decisions. As stated 2-3% of Australian ‘conscientiously object’ to immunization procedures, that is a figure that can be improved strategic immunization campaigning and proper marketing of information.
Dear Editor, it is very important for all human beings to be properly vaccinated. Kids should be vaccinated because their immune systems are at a higher risk of getting sick. Teens should be vaccinated because they’re starting to get into the real world and realizing that there’s things out there that they don’t want to get. Adults should get vaccinated because they don’t want to pass it to their love ones. Kids should be properly vaccinated because they’re so young and they’re easy to get sick.
Vaccines have reduced and in some cases eliminated many diseases that killed or severely disabled people just a few generations ago. Children are no longer required to receive the smallpox shot because the disease itself no longer exists. Another reason to use vaccinations is for the safety of those around you. Vaccines and immunization do have many benefits. Though Americans have the tendency to just get them because they have to rather than them needing them.
Vaccination of 20% of children would reduce the total number of influenza cases in the US by 46%; 80% coverage would reduce the total number of cases by 91%. Similar reductions were estimated to occur in influenza-related mortality and economic costs. Why Some Parents Are Against It A number of parents fear the government forcing them to vaccinate their children. These parents are anti-vaccine for a variety of reasons.
Immunizations can save a child’s life; due to the medical advances that have taken place, kids are now protected from many illness/ diseases. At one point in time, Polio was a horrible illness that is now preventable by simply receiving a shot (USDHHS, n.d.). Immunizations protect not only the individual receiving the vaccination, but others as well. Certain individuals are not suitable for specific vaccinations, therefore, if everyone else has the vaccination, the people who cannot are more likely to be safe from the illness (USDHHS, n.d). Generally, immunizations are safe, effective, cheaper in the long run, and can save families time.
(A.Offit). Some children, who contract a deadly disease, usually don’t have enough time to complete their wish list. By allowing your children to be vaccinated, you are giving them an opportunity to live out their life without the threat of an infectious disease. Children who are the ages of five and under are the ones who are commonly infected by a disease. A vaccination is just a shot containing the dead or weak germ of the disease.
You shouldn’t vaccinate your children because of the harmful chemicals in the vaccines, not only are the chemicals harmful but the vaccines you take are not proven to last forever therefore you will have to get the vaccine again which puts you more at risk of the harmful chemicals. Another reason to not vaccinate is because vaccines have side effects that are more harmful than some of the diseases that the vaccine prevents meaning that not only are they dangerous but they are unnecessary. My last reason for not vaccinating your children is because some diseases that vaccines have been made to prevent have disappeared.
Required Immunity Mandatory vaccinations for children in public schools have been the center of much debate since laws were first developed to regulate immunization. Fears from parents about side effects and adverse reactions have steered many away from wanting to vaccinate their children despite the numerous infectious diseases they prevent. These debates have gotten in the way of progression in schools for preventing the spread of disease. To me, the risks of not vaccinating children are far greater than the risks of adverse reactions.
Many people may think that vaccination is a bad thing, that instead of preventing it causes illness, that is not natural. Natural or not, there are many reasons as to why we should vaccinate us and the younger generation. Most of the time children don’t like vaccination because it hurt, but is the responsibility of a parent to seek the wellbeing of his or her child. Vaccination it’s a preventive measure of various diseases. Unfortunately, things like the anti-vaccination movement, the misinformation on the Internet, and the believe that vaccination causes more damage than is worth, have led our society to think that it’s right not to vaccinate.
Vaccinations When it comes to vaccinations, there are many different opinions on immunizing a child, especially when that child’s parent has a strong like or dislike towards vaccinating. Immunizations have existed for at least a thousand years and as technology advances more, there are new vaccines being designed to help protect our children from contracting contagious and sometimes deadly diseases, such as Bordetella pertussis, polio, and even influenza. For decades, all 50 states have required that parents vaccinate their children against various diseases, including polio and measles, as a prerequisite to enrolling them in public schools (Ciolli, 2008). Enrollment in public school requires up to date vaccinations in order to protect the children and even the adults from contracting and spreading a disease, possibly causing an epidemic.
Vaccinations can help prevent future diseases or viruses in the upcoming life of a child. According to an article from vaccines.gov, “Because of advances in medical science, your child can be protected against more diseases than ever before. Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children, have been eliminated completely and others are close to extinction- primarily due to stay safe and effective vaccinations.” Throughout the years more viruses have been prevented due to vaccinations in children. There has also been an increase in the amount of children that get vaccinations at a young age.
