Vaccination has strongly integrated into modern medicine, and several generations have grown up without being exposed to epidemics of measles, whooping cough, etc. The invention of vaccines has saved and shaped society for the better. However, during the recent decade, an anti-vaccine movement has emerged, powered by the complaints and claims of parents and millennials on the internet and videos related to supposed specific effects of vaccines. Many parents who believe the new propaganda opt not to vaccinate their children, or refuse certain vaccinations creating many deadly risks for their own kids. The first vaccination was by Edward Jenner who invented a method to protect people against smallpox in 1796. Getting vaccinated is vital to our society and protects us from many deadly diseases.
Getting vaccinated helps prevent very serious diseases such as influenza and measles. “Vaccination is the administration of antigenic material (a vaccine) to stimulate an individual’s immune system to develop adaptive immunity to a pathogen. Vaccines can prevent or ameliorate morbidity from infection” (Vaccination, 2017, 1). Without vaccinations our world would be much less advanced and put us back in a time where hundreds of young children died from the common cold and flu. “…Many of these diseases (like influenza, pertussis, and shingles) are common in the U.S., and many can be spread easily” (10 Reasons, 2017, 1). The risks of these potentially very harmful diseases is far greater of putting “unknown” ingredients in your system. Just because these big scary names sound deadly, doesn’t mean they are. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Measles is far worse than “unnatural” components that a vaccine is made out of in your system.
Health professionals recommend getting vaccinated because it’s safer to get vaccinated, additionally, not receiving a vaccine can potentially be deadly. The benefits of receiving vaccines outweigh the cost of treating the disease. In the scheme of things, vaccines are way cheaper than treatments if you do happen to contract the disease a certain vaccine could have prevented. “Within the medical community, I’m not aware of any debate (over vaccines),” said Richard Hoffman, the chief epidemiologist with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. “The benefits of them [vaccines] so much outweigh the cost of treating the disease” (Vaccines, 1997, 1). Doctors know that the right thing to do is to get vaccinated. Medical doctors go to school for 10+ years so they know exactly what they are talking about. Taking the advice of a medical professional is the way to go and the wisest decision.
The world would be way worse off without vaccines. Getting vaccinated is vital to the survival of many people and is extremely important to our society. Without vaccinations, the world population would be way smaller than it is now.
If there were no measles vaccine, we’d have at least 4 million cases in the U.S. every year. Before the vaccine arrived in 1963, nearly everyone got the disease in childhood, and on average 440 kids died from it annually in the decade prior. (Haelle, 2016, 1)

Things would be a lot worse if we didn’t have vaccines. Our children would have a more difficult time surviving. As the years go on, the risk of contracting a disease goes down. That’s why people are living to be older and more children are surviving, all thanks to vaccines.
In addition, some say unvaccinated children are generally healthier due to not receiving injections of “poisonous” substances in our bodies. Some even say that vaccines cause autism. “International studies looking at the health outcomes of unvaccinated children compared to their vaccinated peers have repeatedly shown that the unjabbed are generally less afflicted with allergies, autism, behavioral disorders, autoimmune dysfunction, and respiratory ailments” (Huff, 2015, 1). However, this is not true because unvaccinated children are more likely to contract deadly diseases. Also, the autism “fact” is a myth. Unvaccinated kids are proven to be more likely to get sick than vaccinated children. The risk of not getting vaccinated is far too great to worry about “behavioral” issues.
Vaccines help prevent newborns from contracting very deadly diseases throughout their lifetime. Many people don’t have these deadly diseases because they were vaccinated as babies. Thanks to vaccines people are not walking around with the plague.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends vaccinations from birth through adulthood to provide a lifetime of protection against many diseases and infections, such as influenza, pneumococcal disease, human papillomavirus, and hepatitis A and B. Yet many individuals are not vaccinated as recommended, leaving them needlessly vulnerable to illness and long-term suffering. (Top, 2016, 1)
The risk is greater by not getting vaccinated. Before the time of vaccinations, hundreds of people were contracting these terrible deadly diseases that killed millions of children and adults. Now that babies are vaccinated when they are born the U.S. simply does not see these diseases anymore and one is far less likely to die from them.
Some say that vaccines are only about profit because vaccines are very profitable people automatically start assuming it’s all about the money. The human race’s mind runs around the dollar sign. “Vaccines are highly profitable for pharmaceutical companies and the healthcare industry. Strong financial incentives exist to continue this practice, not effectiveness (Samuelson, 2016, 1). Some believe that vaccines are meant to profit from big bully corps by taking the common folks’ money. However, just because the government puts a price tag on something doesn’t mean it’s worthless and that it doesn’t work. People need to bring the bread in somehow, and if something like a vaccine is that vital, the price is most likely worth it. Many vaccines are also covered by most insurance companies adding to the list of many benefits of getting vaccinated.
Many people are scared by the scary-sounding ingredients listed in vaccines. For some reason, long names tend to scare people who know nothing about said topic.
Here is a list of some of the damaging ingredients in the vaccines on the market today: MSG, antifreeze, phenol (used as a disinfectant), formaldehyde (cancer-causing and used to embalm), aluminum (associated with Alzheimer’s disease and seizures), glycerin (toxic to the kidney, liver, can cause lung damage, gastrointestinal damage, and death), lead, cadmium, sulfates, yeast proteins, antibiotics, acetone (used in nail polish remover), neomycin and streptomycin… (Pope, 2017, 1)
Yes, if isolated, some of these ingredients could really be harmful, but only if isolated. In fact, we as humans are encouraged to put one of the most deadly substances into our bodies, Dihydrogen Monoxide. Commonly known as H20. Without water, the human population would most certainly disappear. One simply does not see a bunch of propaganda about stopping water from entering our system.
In conclusion, getting vaccinated is very important because it provides protection not only for vaccinated people but for those who cannot be vaccinated due to biological/genetic reasons. Adults getting vaccinated is also very important for young babies who cannot be vaccinated because of their age. Without vaccinations, many kids would’ve died within a day of exiting their mother’s womb. Vaccination is important for the whole human population. People all over the world are traveling more, and exposure to deadly viruses mixed with low vaccination statistics can easily cause an outbreak in other countries, especially if there is a lower rate of vaccinated people. The process of vaccination should be more open for parents and others involved. News and other mass media should also be required to interact with the government and deliver scientifically reliable information to the population because in the absence of scientifically proven information the public can easily follow different false-scientific articles and videos found on the Internet. One of the biggest reasons anything gets a bad reputation is because the media puts false information out for the public eye. Many old guys in robes screaming about aliens can go write an article about whatever they want on the internet and some people would believe anything they see. False information spreads fast and it literally can kill people. Before making quick decisions to not vaccinate, think about the kids and do some research on the benefits of getting vaccinated.
