When weighing the odds of the pros and cons of vaccinations, many patients develop a controversy without first obtaining the facts from evidence-based literature. Some consider conspiracy and assumption without trusting the scientific studies and underlying motive for implementing vaccinations. Without vaccinations, the world would run rampant of disease. In my opinion, regardless of the cons or adverse reactions, trying vaccinations is better than plagues, disease and ending society with sadness and illness.
Mandating vaccination is another topic of discussion whether to have freedoms or government power. Some diseases are considered deadlier than others and that risk is taken into consideration when considering the benefits outweighing risks. According to Vaccinateyourfamily.org, a child is more likely to get struck by lightning than have a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine (Dorit Rubinstein Reiss, 2022). Those with underlying health conditions and weakened immune systems need guidance from a healthcare provider before considering and monitoring the safety related to administration acceptance.
Based on evidence and research, the CDC recommends the best time for vaccinations based on the vulnerability of the disease and when the strongest immunity response would protect and serve purpose. With studies conducted worldwide, the link of autism as a â€œriskâ€ is outweighed due to the link of claim that is disproved by the vaccine research section of science safety and efficacy.
With the safety consideration derived from licensed organizations such as the Food & Drug Administration, some patients may consider the economical kickbacks. With reactions and side effects, the Vaccine Information Statement is available to the public for review.
Natural immunity results in a better immunity than vaccination but also comes with an increased risk with how the actual disease will affect an individual. For example, chickenpox may result in pneumonia or hospitalization whereas measles or polio could result in terminal illness or with serious debilitation. Without referencing the science behind the historical past diseases, the recent pandemic of COVID-19 allowed first-hand experience for nurses to understand getting the COVID-19 vaccination is â€œsafer and more dependableâ€ to build immunity than getting sick with COVID-19 (Dorit Rubinstein Reiss, 2022). Several loved ones lost their lives in a short amount of time after infection and others resulted in having underlying issues that exacerbated and continue to cause issues for the population regardless of immunity.
With the controversy of a patient questioning the research, an advanced practice nurse must be prepared with knowledge and research to support evidence-based practice and clinical approach. A patient inquiring about the safeness of a vaccine must develop an interpersonal relationship and trust from the healthcare provider before considering the resources. Without an underlying trust, â€œadviceâ€ is merely considered as fiction until proven adequate outcomes. Results and observation have the must see to believe approach regardless of studies and organizational literature.
