Vaccination education can disclose the following 3 factors that are relevant to the best outcomes for yourself and those you care for:
1. The Benefits: becoming vaccinated for a disease allows your immune system to resist the disease. Secondly, you will not have to suffer the symptoms of the disease. Thirdly, you will not risk dealing with the many complications of the disease, such as long term affects or possibly death.
2.The Risks: can be mild side effects, such as redness or swelling, which go away in a day or two. In rare cases, one might have an allergic reaction. Trained medical staff can deal with these issues.

Why People do not get Vaccinated?
Information on adult vaccinations:
DID YOU KNOW ADULTS SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT VACCINATIONS AS WELL???
new vaccinations for adults, such as HPV
you may have missed some childhood vaccinations
you have multiple sex partners
you have a compromised immune system
when you travel, or attend adult schools, examples: college or universities
Why Should People Get Vaccinated?
50,000 people die annually from vaccine preventable disease
Provide lifetime of protection against many diseases and infections.
- Child is born with medical condition where the immune system is compromised with vaccinations
- the body is sacred and certain chemical should not enter the body. The body should be healed by God, gods, or by natural means.
Personal and Philosophical views
- the number one reason why individuals do not get vaccinated.
Government interference with personal choice
Concerns with efficacy and safety of vaccines
Average 4-5 days missed of work/school due to illnesses (Influenza)
Over $10 billion in indirect and direct costs
Karina Abraham, Devanie Anderson, Yvonne Delgado, Merri Elliott, Jennifer Murray, Jocelyn Reyes
Most Common Misconceptions
Diseases had disappeared before vaccinations due to better hygiene and sanitation- State Regulations
Vaccines do not give immunizations- they do not work and most diseases occur after vaccinations
Some vaccines have had adverse effects, more serious health conditions, and even deaths. DTap causes Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
The U.S has eliminated vaccine preventable diseases, therefore, my child does not need to get vaccinated
A child that gets vaccinated multiple times for multiple reason is at higher risk of harmful side effects and the immune system can be affected
Lack of Resources or Vaccine Shortages is not a reason why people do not get vaccinated in the U.S
