Should Parents Have Their Children Vaccinated?

Some parents believe that their children should get vaccinated for various reasons. One reason that parents believe they should vaccinate their children is when they get the shot, they become immune to whatever the shot was given for. Also, it is better for the child's health, the family's health, and other people's health around them. The parents think that they should just follow the doctor's orders to get the shots to be on schedule with their health.

The Other Perspective

Some parents do not think they should vaccinate their children for lots of reasons. They believe they should not vaccinate their children because they believe strongly in the Bible and think that it interprets that getting shots is not a "Christian" thing to do. Another reason that they believe they should not vaccinate their children is because parents think that their children would be getting vaccinated too early. Some parents also just don't like the thought of saying it is okay for doctors to give their children shots and it hurts them so it makes the parents feel bad.

What I Believe

I think that parents should vaccinate their children and not be able to opt out for many reasons. Like I stated earlier, I think that it is better for the children's health and the people around them. Another reason I believe that parents should vaccinate their children is so that the child will become immune to whatever the shot was given for.

Summary

Some parents believe that they should vaccinate their children for safety reasons, getting the shot so that they are immune to get what the shot was for, the people who didn't vaccinate brought back multiple diseases, when they did a study on polio before and after the vaccines were made, when they had them it was decreased by over 98% of the polio cases, and other reasons. Some parents don't think that they should vaccinate their children because they don't want to hurt their child, thinking it is too early, cultural beliefs, and more.
