Studies have shown that unvaccinated children are 35 times more likely to contract the disease then immunized children." Parents are putting their children at risk of a life threatening disease out of fear. The possible side effects of the vaccine are nowhere near as like to occur as contracting the disease without the vaccine. The eighth leading cause of death in children is preventable, yet some parents are too stubborn to get their children the vaccine to completely wipe out the measles and other life threatening
When someone decides that they don’t want to vaccinate their children, they do not only endanger their child, they endanger the people around them. Because a vaccine only works 95% of the time, those people in the 5% can contract the disease from the people who did not get the vaccine. Which is why vaccinations should be controlled by the government, and not the parents. When irresponsible parents decide their child cannot and should not be vaccinated, they put all the people around them at risk of sickness and even
After a parent see’s the scientific evidence of the human body 's need for vaccines it should be very difficult for the parent to deny their child what they need. Making it illegal to deny a child of vaccines would stop parents from making irrational choices just by a facebook article. The way the human body is designed, it needs some sort of defense mechanisms all of its
I hear a lot that after a baby gets vaccinations they tend to be sick for a couple days, They will have side effects such as high fevers and swelling. I can see why that would concern some parents because no one wants to see their baby suffer, But I would rather have my child be sick with something that can be solved with some Tylenol than something that can affect my child for a lifetime. My last question is that are we seeing the disease that we haven 't seen for decades now because people are vaccinating their children. I believe that it is true, we are seeing these old diseases because the disease is still out, but majority of the US are immune to it because we were vaccinated and now that it is a trend to not vaccinate your children we are seeing more and more kids getting disease that has been obsolete for years. Also, believe that because these diseases have been obsolete that the doctors do not have up to date treatment plans for them and that 's why these young children who are not immunized are catching these diseases and dying
These belief systems are a great concern to parents who follow the compulsory vaccination schedule. Dr Karen Plant said, “The low rates mean a loss of ‘herd immunity’ which exposes those too young or ill, such as babies to be vaccinated, to disease and infection, which Mullumbimby has already been exposed to in the past” of the risks of low vaccination in communities. Mullumbimby mothers Toni Mcaffree both lost a child, to the Whooping Cough after an outbreak in the between 2009- 2013. Mother and Health Care worker Kalee Suthers, “They were to young to be vaccinated, so they relied on the rest of the community to be vaccinated to offer protection, but numbers wernt high enough” said when speaking of the deaths of the two babies. However, the anti-vax lobbies and groups believe that the “risks of vaccine outweigh the benefits, despite what science says” Mrs Suthers said.. “They have a strong belief that the pharma industry or the government is out to get them” she added.
It 's difficult to see your little child get a shot, but experts agree that vaccinations are vital for children 's health. Parents need to know the risk their child is in when they deny the vaccine shot when they are newborns. There are many things that that can happen if you deny the vaccine shot on your child for example harmful diseases, disability and they can even die. Most of the time kids die because they can not stand
The measles controversy started in 1998 after a fraudulent research paper in the medical journal was published. The paper contained studies stating colitis and autism is linked to the measles vaccine. After the initial publishing the amount of people getting the vaccine dropped from 92% in 1996 to 84% in 2002 (in the Uk). Within the first 5 months of 2006 there was reportedly 449 cases of measles, compared to 1998 where there was only 56 within the whole year. The measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children even though there is a safe and cost-effective vaccine available people are still believing these allegations are far more severe that the consequences of the measles.
Colorado Children require vaccinations for schools Injecting diseases in children in order to prevent diseases. Though it sounds bad; It immensely beneficial. Vaccination had it expunged specific life threatening diseases that affected and killed thousands of people and people will never have to treat these life threatening diseases again. Colorado require all parents to vaccinate their children but, there are an increasing amount of parents who exempt their child from the vaccines. Their are 3 types of exemptions of vaccinations; medical, religious, and philosophical reasons.
People do use religious and opinionated excuses to prevent their children from becoming vaccinated. Parents and guardians believe myths and Facebook posts instead of well educated doctors to determine if their child should be vaccinated. This is a huge mistake! By not vaccinating your children properly you are not only putting them at risk, but the people around them that they encounter daily (CDC). Parents should not be able to make up an uneducated excuse to keep their children from being properly vaccinated.
Indeed, some have called this controversy “the most significant setback for the cause of immunization since the smallpox vaccine debates of the previous century” (Baker, 4003). The paper’s publication, coupled with the fact that the pertussis vaccination at the time contained bacterial cells and was considered retrogenic, which lead to a widespread fear amongst parents. The United Kingdom’s Department of Health and Social Security found the pertussis vaccine to be particularly harmful to infants less than six months of age, well below the age at which the DTP immunization was being administered at the time (1981). Thus, it was not those children that received the vaccination that received the benefit of the immunization, but rather it was the younger infants that older children might be in contact with that were benefitted because of the provided herd immunity. The very serious complications thought to be associated with pertussis vaccine therefore seemed too risky to many parents who felt that their children were being put at risk for the sake of protecting someone
