Some parents may not be able to bear the cries of a needle, or because of religious beliefs that create distrust of the vaccine and choose for their child not to be vaccinated. But without vaccination, there are many deadly, yet preventable infectious diseases like Mumps, Measles, Pertussis., which may endanger the health of their children and even others. Let’s explain why parents should regularly bring their children to get vaccination, and the possible disadvantages of not being vaccinated.

Increased Health Risk for a Child Without Vaccination

Even if a child looks healthy, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not infected. Those who are not vaccinated as a child may need special care when they are later admitted to hospital, and because medical personnel are less exposed to unvaccinated patients, they are less skilled at caring for them, thereby increasing the risk of medical care. In addition, pregnant women who have not been vaccinated as a child are more likely to have pregnancy complications due to infection. For example, if they develop rubella in the first three months of pregnancy, they are likely to have infants with congenital rubella syndrome (CRS) congenital heart disease, developmental retardation, deafness, and such defects.

Baby not vaccinated can also harm others

The Risk of a Child Not Being VaccinatedSome people who live in poor medical or economic conditions, or who have cancer such as leukemia, cannot vaccinate, must rely on others to be vaccinated to protect against the spread of infectious diseases.Your baby might become the cause of infectious diseases, even if you are not seriously ill, you will still spread the disease to those around you who were not able to get vaccinated. You may face serious disease consequences as a result. Therefore, all parents are required to regularly bring their children to get vaccinated, in part for the sake of public health.

Making children bear unnecessary social consequences

If a child is not regularly vaccinated, whether he is sick or when a public place such as school becomes contagious, it needs to be isolated.T he inability of a child to attend school or other activities affects not only the life of the family, but also the social situation of the child. Some schools also keep unvaccinated children out of school because of the safety of all students. It would be unworthy to miss social and educational opportunities for this avoidable reason.

Vaccine has side effects, but there are more benefits than disadvantages

Vaccines, like other drugs, can cause some side effects, but their benefits are significantly greater than their side effects, and no studies have confirmed that the side effects of vaccines are at risk.In addition, vaccines can cause Autism fallacy. Studies have confirmed that vaccines are not directly related to autism, and many children receive autism after vaccination because of the age of vaccination and the age at which the symptoms of autism begin to appear, both succession is coincidence, not causality. Parents can be assured that their children are vaccinated because it is the best way to protect them and everyone around them from infectious diseases.
