As a human being, you should always try to do what is the best for your loved ones. Vaccines and immunizations can actually save the life of your child. Vaccinations can protect your child from diseases and sicknesses. An example of life-saving vaccinations is the Polio vaccine. Polio was once America’s most feared diseases, but because the vaccination causes immunity, Polio is not feared anymore because vaccinations have eliminated cases of Polio. Vaccination is also a safe way of treatment and is very effective. Although discomfort is caused, it is far better than the symptoms and the disease itself. Side effects of the vaccination such as an allergic reaction are extremely rare. Also, vaccinations protect the well being those that you care about. Immunizations can save you time and money, by keeping your family out of the hospital. Finally, vaccinating can protect future generations by elimination, or at least minimizing, diseases.

Vaccines are normally strained and grown through human and animal tissues. Fully vaccinated children are not always the healthiest, and studies have shown that vaccinated children are more likely to have autism, asthma, ADHD, ear infections, and allergies, with risk rates being almost thirty percent higher than most unvaccinated children. Other countries have been put in danger of vaccines. Japan and Australia have both raised the vaccination age for children in that country. In Japan, you must be at least two years of age before you can be vaccinated, and in Australia, the flu vaccine was suspended for children under five years of age. Vaccines have also had many problems, and many of the vaccinations have been made unavailable due to complications. The Lyme Disease vaccination was removed from the market in 2002 when people reported cases of symptoms from the vaccine that were worse than the disease itself. The Rotavirus vaccine was taken off the market in 1999 due to complications as well. The Gardicil vaccine for teenage girls has been linked to complication, but has yet to be removed from the market. 1,600 patients at least have experienced paralysis, fainting, and slurred speech since 2006, when the vaccine was approved. Finally, vaccines can be done at any time or ag, but they can never be undone. If you decide you want to get vaccinated, you can, but there is no way to eliminate an immunization once it has been done.
My personal opinion is that you should be vaccinated. I believe that it would be better to have a built up immune system and not get a disease than to wait or not get it done. Although vaccines do not always prevent you from getting an illness, they do incredibly reduce your risk. Even if you are vaccinated for the flu, and you get the flu, most of the time you do not suffer the brutal full-on-ten-day-vomit-filled flu. If you are vaccinated, you are normally more immune and are only sick for a few days. Because many people in previous generations were vaccinated for smallpox, we do not have to worry about smallpox outbreaks because the vaccine has practically eliminated the disease. However, if a smallpox outbreak were to occur, we would be incredibly vulnerable because hardly anyone has been vaccinated against smallpox.
