Babies And Vaccination?

Vaccination is an artificial immunity presented in the body. So i firmly belive that parents should see to it that their babies be vaccinated. You see vaccines work by tricking the body into thinking it has a disease. Trying to stop the disease the immune system reacts on it. may has its disadvatages as well but in the long run being vaccinated still has more advantages that not being vaccinated.

Sometimes babies after vaccination will have a slight fever, redness, irritations. But it is far more worst if the baby gets (polio, hepatitis, meningitis, mumps, pnemococoal)  This will not only cause money or our time going to the hospital but can also cause death.

People may argue that infants should not be vaccinated at an early age, they may say that they are too young and still developing. But the risk of complication and exposure at an early age to such virus is more deadly and scary.

Childhood vaccines are also cost effective to society and for me this is the best medical success of our lifetime. Vaccines are far safer than the disease itself. JUst imagine the stress and horror of parents during the early times when there was an outbreak of polio, hepatitis, etch. and there was no cure for it. 

As a resposible parents i firmly believe that we should be responsible enough to make sure that we use this preventive measures that medical research has provided us. A childs immature immune system is not that strong and cannot fight off fatal diseases. Advance in medical research has saved thousands of lives and has protected our loved ones from dangerous diseases.
