Lucas Galante Cantelmi Health Assignment 15 27 October 2015 Vaccination: Why Do They Matter? Vaccines save lives, so why are they so feared? Vaccinations are proven to prevent disease safely, and with few complications. Many health organizations endorse vaccines, and with good reason. Estimations say that vaccines prevent between 2 and 3 million deaths each year.
The vaccine doesn 't cause any severe side effects. But some do experience fever or minor soreness and redness where they received the shot. MMR has also been linked to causing autism. There has been no convincing evidence that an MMR vaccine leads to autism but parents have noticed symptoms of autism after a few months of their children receiving the vaccine. But like mentioned before the CDC hasn 't approved and evidence of both being linked to one another.
Being properly vaccinated is a very serious issue that should be addressed. When you get a vaccine your body will naturally build up an immunity to the disease. An annual seasonal flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine) is the best way to reduce the chances the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. Some vaccines may be required by law before you are able to attend school summer camps and other types of facilities where youth gather. Not everyone feels the need to vaccinate their children or themselves unfortunately though.
Vaccines are made from all different ingredients and if a concern parent is involved in vaccinations then the parent should know everything about the vaccination. For example if a child has a allergic reaction to the shot but does not cause autism, he just gets light headed or a few bumps then maybe those are side effects. Side effects are better because the child may feel ill for a few days but that does not mean he will have autism or some form of it Nelson states the “WHO and other aid organizations helped to drive home the necessity of controlling diseases in developing countries” (Nelson 712). The World Health Organization controls the diseases and tries to not cause autism to children. Scientist also study the rates and ratios on vaccines too.
Brincidofovir had less harmful side effects than Cidofovir. The effectiveness of using these three drugs on a people with smallpox has not been established since they have not been tested on people that had the disease. In the event of a smallpox outbreak consideration may be given to use these
The Anti-Vaccine Movement Vaccines are one of the most successful programs in modern health care. Vaccines have reduced, and in some cases eliminated serious infectious diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control public support for vaccines remains high in the United States with a more than 95 percent vaccination rate (CDC 2015). However, there are still several who criticize vaccines and their effectiveness. In today’s society individuals who are against vaccinations believe that vaccines, most notably the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine, are causing our children to develop Autism.
By being vaccinated. It is important to be properly vaccinated because it can prevent you from getting sick, it can fight off the illness, and it can help you stay healthy. First reason you would want to be vaccinated is because it will prevent illness. If you get vaccinated it already knows the illness and can fight it off before it gets you sick. For example, I was vaccinated for the Flu a couple years ago and I did not get the flu at all that year because I was properly vaccinated before time.
Vaccinations have benefited the U.S , and our health, as well as those we care about including us. They have prevented us from getting diseases, and have kept diseases from spreading. If we stop vaccinating we are at risk of an epidemic, that could have easily been controlled with A simple vaccine According to CDC, “Before long we would see epidemics of diseases that are nearly under control today”(Source 4). Vaccines have decreased the rates of many common diseases such as measles and mumps, drastically. In addition to vaccines preventing diseases and epidemics and controlling then, there are also many other benefits.
Three reasons why I think it is important for a person to be properly vaccinated us because one it’s better to be healthy, safe and saves lots of money. The most important thing about being vaccinated is for our next generation. In the next three paragraphs I’ll explain each one in details. Vaccines make you healthier. Vaccines are made from the same germs that cause disease, but it kills all the germs in your body so you won’t get sick.
Anti-vaxxers claim that vaccines are not worth the risk, but the risks of vaccines are the same as an aspirin (Vaccine Myths). Vaccines are no more dangerous than any other medicine that is used universally by most people. Although vaccines can cause an allergic reaction, that is true with all medicines. Reactions resulting from vaccines can consist of muscle soreness, rash, headache, fever, fatigue, and seizures, none of which, show lasting effects. However, these reactions occur very rarely, and there is no scientific proof that the vaccines caused it or other outside factors (Possible side-effects).
Vaccines use very small quantities that are harmless to the body. Because of the speculation behind what is used in vaccines. Each vaccination has to go through a ten year screening and test in order to insure safety. Followed by supervised by the FDA and CDC after ten years to insure reliability and safety. Lastly, for couscous ingredients like thimerosal is separated into two categories.
They can do so with much better ease if some of the children/people present have not taken sufficient precautions such as receiving their vaccinations. It would essentially be apart of distributing a potentially deadly infection if children were not up-to-date with their vaccinations or vaccinated in general. One researcher wrote that “If the decision to refuse vaccination only affected the individual, then refusal would be permissible, but refusing vaccination puts others in harm 's way” (Bailey). By not getting vaccinations, it would not only put oneself in danger, but the people that came into contact with that individual would also be a high risk. The likelihood of either getting or spreading infection is would be substantially greater than if the individual in question would get protected.
