The Importance Of Immunization

Improved Essays
Immunization is a big issue today. especially between parents. They are divided into two groups - one which is for immunization and the other which is against it.

My parents are for immunization, so it was not a big problem. I discussed this topic with my doctor and she said that the children, which have “modern” parents against immunization, will not be able to be a foreign exchange student or travel abroad. Why is that? Because one cannot apply five or six (missing) vaccines in one day. Some of these have a two or three parts, so one has to have time to do it. For example, I missed two vaccinations: one was “hepatitis A” and another was “meningococcus”. The “hepatitis A” has two parts which have to be applied at intervals of six months. The first one they applied in December, so the second one I had in June. Between this time, we had to find time for “meningoccocus”. They applied it in March (somewhere in the middle between “the hepatitis A” vaccine). It was so tough because I had to send my health application in July. My doctor said that the “modern” children will definitely not able to do it. Because they will have a lack of time and a lot …show more content…
In my country, we have no requirement vaccination for a flu. This vaccination has to be applied every year. A few years ago my mom decided to take one of them. After she took it, she had a bad headache and higher temperature; but these are common side effects. However, this was happening two weeks after, so she visited a doctor. They found that she has hyperfunction of thyroid gland. Before this, she was fine. She had a few examination before she took this vaccine and they didn’t find anything. There is no proof that this vaccination caused her issue with the thyroid gland, but she doesn’t want us to take a flu

    Having the government make it mandatory for all parents to get their child vaccinated interest me because there are so many children’s lives lost each year that could have been prevented. By choosing not to vaccinate your child the parents are putting their child’s health and life at risk. For parents that choose not to vaccinate their child due to religious beliefs or medical issues, I can understand because they do not want to go against what they believe in or if their child is receiving chemo their body would reject the vaccinations. As a parent, you protect your children from harm’s way and make sure they are safe. For the parents that are aware of the danger that they put their child in with choosing not to vaccinate them I would like to know a reasonable explanation as to why?…

    I had a new job beginning in a few weeks! How could my pills fail me so dramatically? The nurse practitioner who met with me asked, with a neutrality I would not have thought possible, what I wanted to do. By asking the question that way she gave me permission to do what I wanted to do. It was fine to have a baby if I wanted one; it was also fine to not have a baby if I didn't.…
