Diseases have been a major obstacle in the progression of mankind for the longest time, and we have come up with ways to cope with diseases to help humanity thrive. A major way humans have been able to immunize ourselves to these potentially deadly diseases (such as measles, polio, and tetanus) is through vaccinations. Most vaccinations consist of a solution that contains a weak or killed form of a disease causing microorganism, that is injected into the body so the host's immune system can build a natural immunity to said virus. Thus said, if they do encounter the virus in the future, they will have little to no problem getting rid of the virus from their body. Vaccinations are commonly misinterpreted by society as harmful to the body. Some people believe that vaccines cause autism, and some people believe that vaccines can actually infect the host with the disease they're trying to prevent. The theory that vaccines are linked to autism was debunked by several major studies that proved no correlation to autism and vaccines. Also, the strand of virus inside of a vaccine is too feeble to actually infect the host, but still contains the right DNA for the immune system to build an immunity to it. With all of this said, I believe it should be required by law for all newborns born in the U.S. to be vaccinated, instead of the parents having a choice. This takes away some rights of the parents, but it is inevitably beneficial to the baby and society if they're vaccinated because if the baby is vaccinated, not only do they have a significantly decreased risk of catching a disease, they also decrease the chance they will spread it to other people. It should also be mandatory to get annual flu shots to protect yourself and others from the flu and the new strands that pose a threat each year.
