Are Vaccines Safe?
Justine just got her first vaccination today. She got 4 shots and thank God everything went well, cry and scream are expected. There are some parents who choose not to have their kids vaccinated. They even disagree with the idea of vaccinations for the thought that its hurting their kids especially the baby and it may cause many serious side effects. Well, the truth is Vaccines are safe and very important for the kids to prevent serious diseases. ” The long- term health of our children depends on immunization,” says mark Diamond, MD, a member of Children Community Pediatrician- the largest pediatric and adolescent primary care medical network in Western Pennsylvania. I read this in some magazines that the American Academy of Pediatrics concurs, In the United States alone, immunizations have eliminated smallpox and polio, and drastically reduced the incidence of formerly common infections such as diphtheria and tetanus. We know watching our baby crying after those needle stuck in their body ispainful on our part as a parents, but we are after with the good of our children. They might still a baby but they are smart and brave and have their own way of dealing with that kind of pain. Children who are not vaccinated put their friends, families and others without immunity at risk of contracting the disease. Consider measles, which is extremely contagious. Without the measles vaccine, the disease would spread like wildfire every year.
