As a parent of an 11 year-old daughter, you would research a lot to be sure if there is any side effect or problem with the Gardasil vaccination. Parents are responsible for their children and must be wary not to blindly follow their doctor 's recommended vaccine schedule. They cannot rely or expect their doctor to know everything. They should do their own research and ask plenty of questions about devastating effects. Although I believe vaccines are central and essential components of public health, there are two kinds of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.
It is beneficial, lawful, and does not cause autism. The belief that autism is produced by vaccines stems from falsified research and persists today due to mere coincidences. Unfortunately, society is seeing the repercussions of the anti-vaccination movement with the return of easily preventable diseases. A parent rightfully wants to do what is in the best interest of their child, and vaccination is a safe and effective way to ensure the health of a child. Protecting a child’s well being is worth a little temporary discomfort and a few
Many believe that immunizations don’t help prevent the illness, but have side effects worse than the real disease (Calandrillo). Most immunizations give protection for diseases that are no longer around, and can no longer harm us (Darden). Although, one day our bodies and immune systems will no longer accept the antibodies in vaccinations. On the other side, we are currently provided with the most safe and effective versions of vaccines that go through extensive tests. Immunizations are harmless, with the correct dosages of the antibodies, but they can have rare minor reactions (CDC).
(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.
An article posted by the United States Center for Disease Prevention and Control (2016) highlights that one of the dangers of not vaccinating a child is the predisposition to vaccine-preventable diseases. Also, in the United States, school age children are required to receive periodic shots before enrolment. One could therefore conclude that, to a large extent, pro-vaccine governments do a lot in enlightening the citizens about the risks of refusing vaccines. As a result, the rejection of vaccines may not simply be due to ignorance of the vaccines or the consequences of the refusal, but to other
I have always believed that vaccines are mandatory and benefit more than harm. The Panic Virus has intensified my opinion and allowed me to understand the other party. While I disagree with the anti-vaccine movement and find most, if not all, of their actions and excuses absurd, I can see where they come from. If I were a parent, it will be worrying. Through the several stories in the book, the parents did observe the symptoms after their child received vaccination.
Also Salamanca did not only blame her friends, but she also blamed herself. After Sal 's mother died, she thought that her mother 's death was her fault. Her mother was pregnant and the loss of her baby may have caused the reason that she wanted to pursue her journey. Sal was hanging on a tree and she fell, her mother, still pregnant, carried her to the hospital. When her mother was giving birth to the baby, he was born dead, she then needed to do a hysterectomy, she could not have more babies.
Due to the Family planning policy of how “unmarried women aren’t allowed to have children”(3) Zhang felt nervous that they may pressure him into terminating the baby or not willing to give her child “Hukou”(3). Hukou is a form of household registration used by the Chinese government, a child without hukou would not be able to receive and education or receive proper medical care. She hid her pregnancy for as long as she could, after about five months the family planning committee in her area discovered she was pregnant, a neighborhood official came to her house and left her a decision, “continue on with her pregnancy an pay a social maintenance fee or have a abortion” (3). She decided to keep going, but as the fee was “60,000 USD”(3) she was set back. Then on night six officials forced into
For example, in 2005 a young female toddler contracted polio and infected a handful of other toddlers. However, the majority of the community had received their polio vaccinations and an outbreak was ward off. Pregnant women help protect their unborn babies from birth defects by vaccinating their selves. That immunity is carried into the first few months of the infant’s
“Official statistics kept by the Oregon Health Authority show that about ninety percent of euthanasia patients were concerned about losing autonomy and not being able to engage in enjoyable activities. They also worried about loss of dignity (seventy-seven percent), losing control of bodily functions (forty-seven percent), and being a burden on their family and caregivers (forty-two percent).The hardships occur for the family members as well. Families often wonder if the treatment is worth the extra time and pain when, instead, they could die a “natural” death. For example, there are stories
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. Parents built their arguments against immunization on the strength of the naturally acquired immune system. Childhood diseases were not perceived as a threat but as part of the natural way to reinforce the body.
Many things that the Hmong culture is accustom to are not very well excepted in the US culture. We see an example of ethnocentrism when Lia’s family tries to take home the placenta from the hospital. Though this is traditional for them the hospital does not find it appropriate and fears what could happen if they were to take the placenta. Though things are much different for the Lee family, we see a bit of cultural relativism in Lia’s mom when she makes the decision to have her baby at the medical center. Though this is a completely different experience for her, she has trust that the doctor are there to help her and that she will have a safe delivery.
