27 Nov Should I Vaccinate My Baby?

Vaccinations: Yay or Nay?

There has been a huge debate on whether vaccinations are safe for child. A lot of parents have decided to forego vaccinations because of the side effects they may have. Some parents feel that vaccinations are something that our society should continue to do to keep us all safe. What is your stance on vaccinations? Below is a list of pros and cons of vaccinations.

Pros

1.) Diseases that can be prevented by vaccines still exist. Diseases such as Polio, Mumps and Smallpox still exist in other countries. If we were to stop these vaccines, then we would be risking our country to diseases that once whipped out thousands of lives and now still effect hundreds of thousands of lives in other countries.
2.) Vaccines save lives. As mentioned in the above statement, vaccines save lives by preventing a disease to settle in the immune system.
3.) Vaccines save money. The amount spent on a vaccine is far less than if your child or someone you love were to become sick from a sickness that is preventable by vaccine. Just imagine what you could be spending on time in the hospital if your loved one got really sick.

Cons

1.) Some of the sicknesses that are treated with vaccines, such as measles, chickenpox and rubella can all be treated in other ways besides vaccinations. Some medicine and other treatments combined are god enough.
2.) Vaccines can have serious side effects. In some cases vaccines can cause severe allergic reactions. In a recent study, it was found that 1 out of every million child can have a fatal or near fatal reaction to a vaccine.
3.) Vaccines have harmful ingredients that do not agree with out body’s systems. For example, an organic type of mercury is found in the flu vaccine. This has been linked to causing Autism in children. Some vaccines also have aluminum in them, which can cause neurological problems if taken in large doses.

The list for pros and cons go on and on. It is really up to you and what you believe is best for yourself and your family. It is important to find a physician that believes or can agree in your same moral thoughts and ideas. All fifty states can give medical exemptions depending on your situation.
