Recently there have been a growing number of outbreaks of diseases that were once rare in the United States. These outbreaks put both families and communities at risk. However, they can be prevented if people make sure to vaccinate not only themselves, but also their children.
Vaccinations are critical in keeping our society as a whole healthy. We have vaccinations to thank for the eradication of diseases that were once common and killed thousands of people. As we stop vaccinating our families, and ourselves we increase the risk of being the victim of a disease we could have prevented. For the majority of people, we are at more of a risk by not getting vaccinated, then by getting vaccinated. By getting vaccinations we not only protect our own health, but the health of our community.
