Mandatory Immunization

Surname 1
Mandatory Immunization
A vaccine is a product that makes a person immune to a deadly disease. Over six million
children die each year; moreover, half of them die from diseases that could have been prevented
by vaccines (Greenwood 1). Due to safety concerns, religious beliefs, and lack of availability,
many children end up not receiving their first-year vaccinations. In the United States, it is
mandatory for children to be vaccinated from various diseases before starting school (Omer et al.
1981). The global population is at risk because of some parents choosing not to get their children
vaccinated/immunized. It is crucial for parents to ensure that their children are immunized
against diseases such as polio, chickenpox, and measles among many others, for the sake of their
children’s health as well as the human race.
Vaccinations have fundamentally lessened the rate of diseases all over the planet. In
addition, they significantly reduce the mortality rate. Over three million children could be saved
annually through vaccination (Greenwood 1). Furthermore, if an immunized child contracted the
immunization's targeted ailment, that child would generally have mild symptoms as opposed to a
child who would not have been vaccinated and suffered from a similar disease. Doctors play a
vital role in explaining the benefits of immunization to parents; additionally, they are the most
frequent source of any information related to vaccination (Omer et al. 1986).

The dangers of not vaccinating a child significantly exceed the small risks associated
with vaccination, such as temporary fevers. Sicknesses such as polio and measles can result in
permanent disability or even death if an individual is not vaccinated against them. If the society,
as well as the human race, in general, is to benefit from vaccinations, a lot of effort will be
needed in educating the public regarding the benefits that come with being immunized.
