Importance of Vaccines

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, I am doing a research paper on the importance of vaccines.

I would like to know your opinion on vaccines. Why is it important for people to get vaccinated? What advice would you give anti-vaxxers?

Thank you!

    I think vaccination is very important as before they existed people especially children would contract these ailments like polio measles etc and would either be left blind or deaf or paralysed, this is why some clever doctors developed the vaccination in the first place, when I was born the vaccination was not done until the baby was 6 months old, and I got whooping cough at 3 months and was in hospital for a month and still having symptoms long after that, vaccination has made our world a better place, I know a 98 year old who's 2 brothers died of measles when they were kids, because of vaccination this is less common

      Thank you for your response. May I ask follow up questions?

      Since you got whopping cough as a baby, did you get vaccinated later on in life when vaccines were introduced?

      Did you suggest anyone to get vaccines?

      May I know your name for my paper?
