Good morning ladies and gentlemen. More than 30 million children are unimmunized either because vaccines are unavailable, because health services are poorly provided or inaccessible, or because families are uninformed or misinformed about when and why to bring their children for immunization
(Unicef, Immunization, October 24th 2014).


(Reveal) So, today I’ve come to talk to you today about
The problem of child vaccinations. III.

(Credibility) I have been researching vaccinations mainly child vaccinations for the last couple of weeks. My goal is to inform you about theses and some problems that are very concerning.
A. I’ve also done some research I would like to share with you today.


(Relate) It is not a new fact that kids are dying of horrible diseases such as measles, tetanus or hepatitis B. The problem is that parents are choosing to not have their kids vaccinated against these horrible diseases when its readily available to them. imagine if you got sick as a kid because your parents didnt get

you vaccinated or give you the proper shots, or maybe your future kid got sick because you hadn't given him the proper shots.

(Internal Preview) So today we will be looking at the problem of child vaccinations and the solution which is the Making available of vaccinations, mandatory for children no matter the beliefs of parents.


There is a problem with child vaccinations in America today.
A. Some of the vaccine­preventable diseases that still circulate in the U.S.

B. Extent of harm

while, Immunizations can save your child’s life.
Because of advances in medical science, your child can be protected against more diseases than ever before. Some diseases that once injured or killed thousands of children, have been disappeared completely and others are close to being gone.
Primarily due to safe and effective vaccines.

C. Who is affected
All 50 states require vaccinations for children entering public schools even though no mandatory federal vaccination laws exist. All 50 states issue medical exemptions, 48 states (excluding
Mississippi and West Virginia) permit religious exemptions,and 19 states allow an exemption for philosophical reasons. (ProConOrg

(Overcome) Immunization protects others you care about.
Children in the U.S. still get vaccine­preventable diseases. We have seen resurgences of measles and whooping cough over the past few years. (In 2010 the U.S. had over 21,000 cases of
