Why Are Vaccines Such a Divisive Issue?

Published on May 17, 2018 at 5:12 pm in Vaccine Injury.

Routine immunizations make up an expected part of your healthcare. Vaccines boost your immune system and allow you to safely exist in society. You don’t usually expect a vaccine to cause any harm except maybe a slightly sore area from where you got the shot. But in some cases, vaccines also cause harm to the people who receive them. A vaccine injury could potentially make you miss work because you need to recover. This can add a lot of financial stress when you need to focus on your health.

If you or a loved one has gotten injured because of a vaccine, you may be feeling confused and lost about what to do next. You’re not alone in this. You can seek legal representation from a Wisconsin vaccine injury lawyer from Urban & Taylor. Our experienced and talented lawyers will do everything they can to get you a favorable settlement. With our help, your compensation can cover your uninsured medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You will have peace of mind that you have a financial cushion while you recover.

What Are the Benefits of Vaccines? 

Vaccines have helped society advance in health by reducing threats to our lives and allowing us to fight off diseases. When you’re vaccinated, you’re helping yourself and others.

The benefits of vaccines include:

  • Saving Lives. Vaccines protect against diseases that used to easily injure or kill people.
  • Protecting Others. There are some people who can’t get vaccines to protect their immune system. They depend on those able to get the vaccines so they aren’t at risk. Newborns, people with compromised immune systems, women who are pregnant, and seniors are at higher risk when people aren’t vaccinated against disease.
  • Allow You to Participate in Society. Many schools, universities, and workplaces require people to have immunizations.

Vaccines stop dangerous diseases from rampantly spreading through society. People can live healthier lives and not worry about getting sick from diseases that could have permanent consequences.

Vaccines protect against the following:

  • Measles
  • Diphtheria
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Whooping Cough
  • Smallpox
  • Polio
  • Tetanus
  • Haemophilus influenza type b (HiB)

Thanks to modern medicine, these diseases are no longer a great threat. But there’s a movement of people who are against vaccinations. Why are people still wary about them in this day and age?

Why Are People Suspicious of Vaccines?

There are many people who don’t think vaccinations are safe or healthy. While vaccines have helped us eradicate diseases that used to be devastating, there are circumstances where vaccines have caused a reaction.

Common serious injuries associated with vaccines include:

Varicella Vaccine (Chickenpox)

  • Brain damage
  • Pneumonia
  • Low blood count
  • Seizures

  • Blood disorders

At Urban & Taylor, we fight for victims who have received a vaccine that’s recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and were injured because of it. To ensure that your rights are a priority, you should have a vaccine injury lawyer at your side.
