Vaccines, Good or Bad?

Kids Need to get Vaccines!

Kids need to get vaccines. If they don't germs will be roaming around the air and it will be easier to catch a cold, fever, even the measles! An author from the Los Angeles Times said " More than 8% of people are unvaccinated." that doesn't seem like a lot of people, but its a lot of germs floating around. According to Dr. Offit says "About 1.5-2% of people are unvaccinated." so it varies. From the Wall Street Journal, before 1963, there were more than 500,000 cases of the measles, on average 432 cases were resolved to death. Another statement was from Emily Fox, there were no signs of autism since 2007.

They Other Side......

Though I believe kids should get vaccines, there are reason on the other side too. From the Los Angeles Times, Some kids cant get vaccines because of cancer or some other disease. Sometimes kids can get allergic to vaccines too. Reid Southwick says 1 in 5 Albertans believe that some vaccines can cause autism. My final reason was from Donna Bryson, in Colorado in the year 2012-2013 school year about 4.3% or 2,900 kids were excused from getting vaccines from just a parents signature. Its all up to the parents...

My opinion

I think kids should have to get vaccinations! If you don't, not only can you get sick but so can people around you. You are putting germs into the air that anyone can get. Babies can die because there immune system isn't strong enough.

The Overall Picture

Vaccinations are very import to you and the ones around you. Many people can die or be in critical condition for not sticking a needle into your arm. I see both sides point of view.
