What are the dangers associated with the anti-vaccination movement? Do the dangers of not vaccinating outweigh the dangers of vaccinations? Why or why not? Ultimately how do you see either course of action playing out?
It’s no doubt that vaccination is meaningful as far as prevention of diseases like measles and polio is concerned. However, it has faced criticism from anti-vaccination movement who argues that the vaccination might cause other disease like autism. In this sense it undoes the tremendous progress that has been made in health and science concerning the prevention of such diseases. Its obvious that the meriting aspect of vaccination is so much higher compared to its disadvantages. This is because to prevent such diseases means good individual health that will spend little or no treatment cost to cater for medication. As such, the government should be able to take a stand to defend this policy of vaccination from intrusion and effect by the various movements concerned.
