            Everyone needs vaccines or antibodies. They are prescribed for infants, children, and adults. A vaccine or immunization is an approach to assemble a body's characteristic invulnerability to an infection before somebody becomes ill. This can protect someone from getting and spreading the disease. A vaccine is a chemical substance that gives active acquired resistance to a specific illness. It regularly contains an agent that looks like a disease-causing microorganism and is frequently produced from weakened types of the organism. The agent inside the vaccine refreshes the body's immune system then the body recognizes the agent as a threat, causing it to be destroyed. The body will then further analyze the structural composition of the agent pushing it to destroy any other microorganisms related with that agent.

            Vaccines can save children’s lives. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, most childhood vaccines are 90%-99% effective in inhibiting diseases. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) assessed that these immunizations forestalled around 419 million ailments, 26.8 million hospitalizations, and 936,000 early deaths of children born between 1994 and 2018. Measles antibody has reduced childhood mortality from measles by 74%. Another one is polio, an example which vaccines have been a great impact before in the United States as it was causing so much mischief and deaths across the nation, yet today, there are no yet reports about this as of now.

            Vaccines will protect the community. Community immunity implies that when a portion of a population is vaccinated in defense from an infectious illness, it is unlikely that there will be an outbreak of the disease in the future, so most individuals from the community will be safe and secured. As a result, kids and adults who can't be vaccinated because of age, poor health or other different reasons highly depend on community immunity to prevent an influence of such disease. To add, in 2005, an 18-month-old Amish girl had polio and spread the disease to four other unvaccinated children, but, because the community met the community immunity to fight for the disease, there was no polio outbreak.

            Vaccinations are very safe and effective. Vaccines are only given to children after a long and thorough review by scientists, doctors, and healthcare professionals. It may include some discomfort at the site of injection but it is just minimal compared to the pain of the diseases these vaccines are preventing. When diagnosed with Tetanus, a doctor will immediately disinfect the wound or injury. If the Tetanus is already serious, the patient will end up being hypersensitive and he or she must be kept in a very dark room. At this stage, the doctors can just treat the side effects, with muscle relaxants and antibiotics. Then again, to avoid this and the most significant treatment for Tetanus is through a proper vaccine. With this having, there are several vaccines that protect individuals against tetanus, this in which can also protect people against other diseases.

            Because of the proven researches and studies that vaccines doesn’t really cause harm at all, but rather it provides community immunity and it is the best thing to consider to fully enjoy the outdoor world, all people should be mandated to receive vaccinations. Through the help of the Department of Health and Department of Education, everyone especially the children must be required to take vaccine shots even without experiencing such illnesses. If vaccinating will be mandatory, parents in the future may be able to trust that some diseases of today will no longer be around to harm their children in the future. Remember, health is wealth!
