I need to provide an informative response to 3 of my classmates with 250 words or more,
the response needs to add on to their discussion
There are both Active immunity and Passive immunity. Active immunity are antibodies form by the person in the course of a disease (chickenpox, measles, small pox) Artficial active immunity are vaccines or toxoids that stimulate antibodies such as a booster shot or titer.
Artifical active immunity patients are injected with killed microbes (pertussis, typhoid vaccine) Live vaccines are weakened microbes (measles). Natural passive immunity is passage of antibodies from mother to baby. The first two months the baby is protected from certain diseases. Artifical passive immunity is an injection that provide protection (diptheria, tetanus)
These are how immunizations make a person immune to disease. A person may receive a dose to several doses to build immunity. A person who has some exposure to the disease that has been vaccinated may not get a full blown symptoms of the disease.
I am for Vaccinations because it is important to prevent disease and protect children from getting a severe symptoms. Common preventative diseases can be reduced or eliminated by receiving the immunizations. Boosters and titers are also prevent the spread of diseases.
I think immunizations should be mandated by schools and jobs. I would recommend to most people that getting vaccinated is important to being healthy and the prevention of the spread of most childhood disease or later adult diseases.
Immunization is the process in which a person is made immune to an infectious disease. Administering a small amount of a weakened or dead form of the disease helps your body build up immunity if ever exposed to this disease. You may receive only one dose or several doses over time to help your body build immunity to some of these diseases. Sometimes the vaccines doesn’t completely prevent you from getting a certain disease, but if you do get it, the signs and symptoms are less severe than if you never got immunized.
There are many reasons to get immunized, but the most important reason to me, is to prevent and the spread of childhood disease. These diseases can not only be spread during childhood, but can be spread at any time of life. Age, vaccination history, and health status play a role in determining whether you should be vaccinated for the first time or in need of further vaccinations. Some diseases in the United States, such as, the flu virus, pertussis, and shingles are common and easily spread. I have seen more shingle outbreak in geriatrics in the last five years due to the elderly not getting vaccinated for most common preventable diseases. Children and elderly people are more at risk for developing these diseases due to their weakened immune system. This is why it is so important for them to be immunized to boost their immune system to prevent the spread of these deadly diseases.
As I do believe immunization are very important in preventing the spread of childhood disease, I also think it should not be mandated by schools, jobs, or other agencies. I think a person should have the right to determine for whatever reason, whether it be religious reasons or personal preference not to get immunized. I also believe that immunization played a role in some individual developing autism. I have a family member that was developing normally, walking, talking, playing, and engaging with others, that at the age of 4, after receiving immunizations was diagnosed with autism. This family member was not able to talk, engage with others. I cannot say for sure if it was completely the exposure of the vaccine itself, but whatever it was, the vaccine triggered something.
Although I believe that vaccines share a link to autism and that people should have the right to choose whether to be vaccinated or not, I strongly would recommend to most people that getting vaccinated is the key to being healthy and the prevention of the spread of most childhood disease. The benefits of being immunized out weighs the risk of developing these diseases.
I personally believe that children should be immunization because this protects our children and other children from health issues that have related to death in the past generations. This is something that is a choice for parents to make for their children but with out the immunization when you are a child this can stop you from succeeding later on in life. College and employment are just two of the areas that it would hold a child up in some places of employment require it to be done and up to date. Getting some of these can take up to months to complete because they are a series of shots that have to be spaced out. College requires them to have them up to date as well so this would be another area that it may hold the child up. Also, I would hate to see my child get a disease that could have been prevented. Differences in immunizations among the sociodemographic groups are mediated by beliefs and objective barriers such as protection, medical contraindications, safety concerns, distrust, and natural immunity Prislin, R., Dyer, J. A., Blakely, C. H., & Johnson, C. D. 1998). Studies have shown that public health, medical, and education directed policies are required records for children to attend school or child care for seventy-nine percent of the agencies who provide these cares for children (Hedden, E. M., Jessop, A. B., & Field, R. I. 2014). Most all of the things that have taken children’s and adult lives in the past are now preventable with just a few shots. There has been a lot of controversy on whiter or not that they can be linked to downs syndrome but this has not been a proven fact yet. This is altogether the mother and fathers choice to immunize their kids and it is their right but I strongly agree with the need of education for the parents. After the measles resurgence of the late nineteen hundreds public and private investment in immunization increased dramatically and the rates of immunization had risen across the nation. High-risk urban children lack the minimum level of population immunity to prevent outbreaks (Hoekstra, E. J., LeBaron, C. W., Megaloeconomou, Y., Guerrero, H., & al, e. 1998). By vaccinating your children you are not only helping your child from getting an awful disease that has lead to many deaths in the past but then other children around yours will be safer to not come down with it either since your kid is protected. But I can not stress it enough how it is so important to educate on both sides so that way you are not per swaying the patient to choose something with out the education behind it. Education and then letting the parents decide what to do for their children and not judging them for it. Staying professional with any decision they make. Yours have to remember to keep it professional and not push any personal opinions on any patient or their family. This can be a fine line but one that needs to not be crossed. It is not your choice on how they care for their children. As a health care provider, we are here to give them options and education about each option not make them feel bad or pressure them into any decision.
