While only they are putting their children at great risk with no shots (Hay). Immunizations have prevented 90% of diseases in the world these days are from spreading (CDC). Parents need to see specialized people for any type of misinformed questions that they have on vaccinations. Today, even though people think that vaccinations are required at a certain age in school, as they should be there are exemptions from them (CDC). People do use religious and opinionated excuses to prevent their children from becoming vaccinated.
Scientist also study the rates and ratios on vaccines too. Looking over the rates of recommended vaccinations for children are most important as well. Parents need proof if they do not believe the doctors or nurses when they recommend or suggest a certain vaccine to keep their child alive, Nesson argues that “ Parents often blame their religious or moral to not vaccine”. When religious gets involved it makes a mess out of the argumentations of the beliefs the “Rates of children receiving the highest recommended vaccines- diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and measles- have remained steady” gets more tricking because the parents believe their religion but the same time they want desperately for their child to be healthy so most turn their back at look at recommendations and ratios. The most common in any parents’ concerned brain is the how the rates show up on the charts.
Since the first invention of vaccines, there has been public resistance to vaccination. Resistance to the idea of vaccination is as old as the invention of vaccines themselves, with disputes ranging from the effectiveness and safety of vaccines to the threat to civil liberty that compulsory vaccination campaigns could pose. The CDC recommends a set of vaccinations for every child. These recommended vaccines lower the risk of contraction and develop immunity against many types of diseases. Some agree that vaccination protects the child and when most children are vaccinated, this creates herd immunity.
The discussion on whether or not vaccinating a child should be mandatory is clear. Vaccines should be mandatory because of their benefits for the direct family of the child. Most will think and claim that vaccines are only helpful to the child, but what it overlooked countless of times is the effect on the families of these children. For instance, a younger sibling can be even more protected if their older brother or sister never exposes them to certain diseases or illnesses. The parents never have to worry about the younger children of the family contracting an illness if they are never exposed to it in the first place.
Thanks to technology and research, vaccines have kept serious diseases from becoming epidemic illnesses, unlike many years ago. When children are vaccinated, the chances of contracting the disease being vaccinated for are decreased drastically. Every child should be immunized to protect themselves and the people around them from these deadly diseases. The best way to prevent preventable diseases is to have an immune population. We can achieve this by simply vaccinating our children.
ABSTRACT Vaccination is an artificial method of creating immunization to certain disease. Although vaccines are assumed safe, they have been associated with numerous health hazards. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program compensates people injured by vaccines. Under the new law which is going into effect July 1, 2016, children are banned from private and public school unless they meet the vaccination requirements. Some uncommon facts regarding vaccines are presented.

Retrieved from http://vaccines.procon.org/ According to this article which focuses on should any vaccines be a requirement for children, it brings up the point that although no federal law required vaccinations, however every state requires certain vaccinations in order to enter the public school system. The article argues both pros and cons of having mandatory vaccination and the history behind it.
Vaccines cannot cause autism because autism is too complicated to be caused by a simple vaccination. Vaccines are a way to protect ourselves and our children and should always be administered to the little ones in our lives. With any product there are negative side effects and positive side effects. Sometimes those side effects can look a lot like autism even though they are not. 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.
California is the top of these measles cases as it is “one of 20 states that allow parents to skip vaccination based on their personal, philosophical belief”(Harris, Popovich, and Powell). America is built on the backbone of freedom so it is not a surprise that the government does not infringe on such rights as the 1st Amendment. However, this “freedom” is causing black lash as other claims that it is dangering the rest of the population as experts in the American Academy of Pediatrics explain that “Parents who refuse immunization on behalf of their children are, in a sense, free riders who take advantage of the benefit created by the participation and assumption of immunization risk or burden by others while refusing to participate in the program themselves” (Stoker). The anti-vaccine parents believe that “as the proportion of the population that is vaccinated grows, the individual benefits of vaccination decline,
Within the topic of immunizations, I have decided to focus on the effects that immunizations are having on children 's immune system. My working thesis states that many more children are not being immunized, which could be a contributing to the increase in disease that we haven 't seen in years. Immunizations are the process by which doctors introduce an immunity to children through a series of vaccinations. Vaccinations are small injections of a particular stimulant to fight against the disease. Within my research, i 'm looking to prove that when people choose not to vaccinate their children that they are endangering their children and possibly other children around them.
