Vaccinating children has become increasingly unpopular among certain demographics of society.
These people claim that vaccinations are hazardous to children,s health and as such are not

naturally feel protective of their children. Indeed, there have been some recorded instances of
children unfortunately reacting adversely to their injections. These few instances have bolstered
existing fears in parents that vaccinations are not necessary and potentially more dangerous than
the possibility of contracting the communicable disease itself.
Despite the minor risks associated with vaccinating children, the idea that they are unnecessary and
Dangerous is completely preposterous. Vaccines have prevented vast numbers of deaths over
hundreds of years in countries around the world. The number of deaths so far prevented far
outweighs the number of children who have been adversely affected by the immunisations

campaigns. Overall, the idea that vaccinations are unnecessary and dangerous is ill-informed and
dangerous in itself and could potentially lead to a far worse outcome for society.
This essay argued that people who are against vaccination have a flawed understanding of
