Benefits to Vaccines

At one time, vaccinations completely transformed the medical field in so many ways. They saved lives, prevented illnesses, and so much more. It really changed the way modern medicine worked and helped us discover new ways to prevent sicknesses.

Vaccines are still widely used today and there are even laws put in place that assure that children are getting their vaccinations prior to entering school. You even get vaccinated the day you’re born! They are becoming increasingly popular and I’m here to tell you exactly what the benefits of vaccines are.

What is a Vaccine?

First, let’s take a look at what a vaccine is. Vaccinations are substances that are injected into the body that work to stimulate your immune system to produce antibodies that can work to fight off certain diseases and viruses. These substances are made from either dead or very weak forms of the virus that it’s going to fight against. This makes it easy for your body to build antibodies and attack the vaccine.

Vaccine Basics

To really understand how vaccinations work and why they’re so beneficial, we have to break down our immune systems a little bit. Basically, when a foreign object (disease, virus, etc.) enters the body, your immune system is like the barrier that is supposed to keep those things from affecting your body in a negative way.

This means that your immune system realizes they’re foreign and bad and it starts to produce proteins called antibodies. These antibodies are like the soldiers. They set out on a mission to destroy the foreign invaders in order to prevent you getting sick. However, sometimes it takes them a while to fully fight it off, and this is why you see symptoms of the illness at times.

Not only do antibodies get rid of those invaders, but they also protect your body from ever getting sick from those same foreign objects ever again. Each time your antibodies kills a foreign object, it becomes stronger and able to fight off those types of invaders right away in the future. This is when you become “immune” to something. This is why some people who have had measles or chickenpox only get them once, even though they can be exposed to those illnesses several times throughout their lives.

So where do vaccines come in?

Vaccines are basically foreign objects that are weak or dead (so you won’t get sick) that your antibodies can fight off right away. So in the future, you’ll already have antibodies built up for that illness, thus, making you now immune to them.

The Benefits – Why You Should Get VaccinatedBenefits to Vaccines

They Prevent Fatal Illnesses – If this isn’t reason enough to get a vaccination, I don’t know what is. If you had a way to prevent deadly diseases, would you? Absolutely! And vaccines are the way to do so. These fatal illnesses have been all but wiped out due to the invention of vaccinations: Polio, hib disease, whooping cough, measles, tuberculosis, smallpox, lockjaw (from tetanus bacteria), rabies, and much more. If you are vaccinated, these deadly diseases are prevented.

They’re Safe – By getting vaccinated, you will not become ill with the disease. While some people may feel some symptoms of sickness shortly after a vaccine, this is only due to your antibodies building themselves up to destroy the dead or weakened illness. They are very safe and very effective at preventing diseases.

They Protect Non-Vaccinated People – Not only are you protecting yourself from getting diseases, but you’re actually preventing those who are not fortunate enough to be vaccinated. Since you won’t get sick with that disease, there is no chance of you spreading the disease onto someone else who may not be lucky enough to be immune by vaccination. This is why there are actually laws put in place that say children cannot enter school without first being vaccinated of certain diseases. This is to prevent the spread of that disease.

Can Save Money – If any of you have spent time in a hospital, then you’re very familiar with how expensive it is. Medical bills are no joke and insurances only cover so much. If you are vaccinated, then you won’t fall ill with fatal diseases or even diseases that cause you to need medical attention. This can save you a lot of money in hospital bills.

They Have Reduced Fatal Illnesses – Not only do vaccines prevent fatal disease, but they’ve actually all but put some into extinction. Many diseases that used to cause many deaths are now not even on anyone’s radar due to the wonderful benefits of vaccines.

Gives You Peace of Mind – If you’re a parent, or just someone in general, you will have peace of mind knowing that you don’t have a chance of falling ill with a fatal disease that can be prevented by getting vaccinated. As a parent, you know that when you send your child to school that they won’t get sick with harmful illnesses because of all the other children being vaccinated as well.

Fun FactsBenefits to Vaccines

Vaccines have drastically changed the medical field. Here are some actual numbers of different diseases and how much they have been reduced due to vaccines.

Measles – 500,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 55 cases in 2006.

Diphtheria – 175,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 0 cases in 2006.

Mumps – 150,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 6,584 cases in 2006.

Whooping Cough – 147,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 15,632 cases in 2006.

Smallpox – 48,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 0 cases in 2006.

Rubella – 47,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 11 cases in 2006.

Polio – 16,000+ confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 0 cases in 2006.

Tetanus – 1,314 + confirmed cases annually in the 20th century – 41 cases in 2006.

As you can see, vaccinations are more than a little important to preventing fatal illnesses. There are so many benefits of vaccines, and now you know why you should get vaccinated.
