Why Vaccinations are Good


Bring up the topic of vaccinations today and you will sound be in the middle of the greatest debate in our nation right now. While every parent must make their own choices, here are some compelling reasons in favor of vaccinating your child.

Many of these diseases, such as measles and mumps, can be deadly, especially to young children. Without the immunization, your child will be at risk to catch one of these preventable illnesses. Vaccines were developed to help eliminate deadly diseases.

The cost of a vaccination is much less than treating the disease, also. Why would you want your child to get sick and be miserable and in pain?

There are outbreaks of these diseases every year. If you don’t vaccinate, you could be put stuck inside your house, in isolation. This could take weeks to clear up.

If you have an unvaccinated child that does get sick, the risk to young babies or other kids with serious illnesses is very high. Immunized children are much less likely to come down with a disease and spread it to others.

One common vaccination is for Pertussis, or “Whooping Cough”. This disease is prevented with an immunization. Pertussis is very hard to treat and can result in death or brain damage. Diphtheria can lead to paralysis, breathing issues, heart failure, and of course even end in death. These are illnesses to take seriously!

Although we are talking about vaccinations for children, adults can also be at risk. Some shots you may have received when you were young do wear off and require boosters. If you don’t make sure you are up to date, you can also unwittingly pass on a disease to unvaccinated children. While an adult may be able to fight this, a young child will be less able to do so.

Vaccines are safe and offer many benefits- even saving lives. Make sure to vaccinate your child and keep your own immunizations up to date as well.

  • Our boys have all of their vaccines. I don’t believe in putting them or others around them at risk.

  • This is a good post and I practically agree with everything you wrote. Great job speaking your mind.

  • My kids are all up to date and fully vaccinated. My youngest had a bad reaction to his last shots, he got hives all over his body for just under a week and it terrified me. I may delay or stagger the next set, but I would take that over death any day. That said, this is such a sensitive subject, and I try to avoid it at all costs.

  • My daughter can’t get vaccinated, so it’s important that other people around her are vaccinated. If they aren’t, she’s at risk for preventable diseases.

  • I believe in the need for most vaccines. I don’t agree with the flu vaccine and refuse to get it every year. Maybe when I’m older, but not now.

  • I fail to understand why parents do not vaccinate their children. My daughter was vaccinated for everything. I think it is very important to do!

  • Great post I still do not understand why some people will not get their kids vaccinated all my kids have everything they need to.If your kids are not vaccinated they are not only a danger to themselves,you and other people.It is better to be safe than sorry.
