For or against protecting your children like this mother?
In recent times it has become common for many parents to take their children to be vaccinated, including vaccines that are applied to babies a few days old, the reason dates back to the 90’s.
A little history
In 98 a study carried out by British doctor Andrew Wakefield and published in the journal The Lancet linked the tripe virus vaccine – which is administered for immunization against measles, mumps and rubella – with autism.
Hundreds of parents fearful of this study stopped vaccinating their children and founded the “anti-vaccines” movement, which has been gaining strength in many countries and encourages many recent parents not to immunize their children against viral diseases such as measles. rubella and so many more.
A desperate mother
The story shared by the upsocl site tells how a young mother was harassed by countless people who were harassing her due to a decision she made for the benefit of her little one who was only a few months old.
The baby had a total of 23 days suffering from a chronic cough that made him choke to blue (cyanotic) and cry non-stop. The child’s mother decided to wait all those days for the disease to “go away naturally”; However, the coughing continued and the coughing spells became intolerable. In the end, the mother took the child to the hospital to be vaccinated and thus have rest after so much suffering.
What was the problem?
Apparently many had been the people who had recommended to her that she DO NOT GET VACCINATION of her baby since according to those recommendations “vaccines and immunizations were useless and had side effects”
When she expressed on her social networks the decision she had made to have her baby vaccinated, the inbox of her social network Facebook collapsed with messages of both support and disapproval for what she had done.
But he was not left alone in messages, his posts were bombarded with reproving messages for having his son vaccinated.
The woman made a series of publications where she explained that due to the stalking of so many people, she would have to put her account in a restricted mode since messages did not stop reaching her recriminating and insulting her for having her child vaccinated.
Who are the ones who choose not to vaccinate their children
In an interview given to the BBC, Nina Shapiro, a pediatrician and professor at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine, explained that the number of children who have not been vaccinated used to be found in the wealthiest communities, homes where it occurs great importance to healthy lifestyle.
According to Shapiro “Those parents who do not vaccinate their children believe that they are doing something good.”
In contrast, in low-income households, fewer parents voluntarily decide not to vaccinate their children.
The importance of vaccines
The number of parents who openly express their wishes not to vaccinate their children for fear that a vaccine is the cause of autism or any other disease, condition or strange behavior or even death, is increasing and the WHO (organization World Health Organization) set out to dispel those myths.
The international scientific community found that social networks are the cause of these lies to spread.
Vaccines have shown since the beginning of the last century that they are effective in fighting a large number of diseases such as diphtheria and tetanus. They have also been essential to stop epidemics that once devastated entire towns.
Vaccines not only prevent but also cure and reduce the incidence of diseases such as: diphtheria, measles, mumps, pertussis, polio, rubella, congenital rubella syndrome (CRS), tetanus and Hib (virus that causes pandemic flu or influenza ).
The need to inform about it
Sometimes it is not a question of choosing or not to vaccinate their children, sometimes it is a matter of parents completely ignorant of how necessary it is to be vaccinated (in the case of pregnant women) and have their children vaccinated or repeat the dose of a vaccine to prevent the most fragile of the house from dying because someone in the family infects them with a disease.
To vaccinate or not to vaccinate is your choice
That is why you must be responsible with what you choose in favor of your children, remember to do it in a wise way no matter what others say, just as the mother of that baby who almost dies from a coughing crisis, do not get carried away by fashions and Other people’s opinions, find out because the lives of your children are in your hands.
