The importance of immunization in this country is becoming a more commonly asked about subject as the media paints the picture of an overly healthy country. There has been a flaunting of the strength of vaccines by the media and thanks to this flaunting most of the populace has developed false impressions about immunization.
They hold immunization responsible for eradicating some diseases making people think it is safe to not need to take immunization treatments, but at the same time the media makes a huge note to people to make sure to vaccinate their kids, themselves, and the elderly.
Down but not out
Despite how the media is portraying immunization as having already beat back disease, it is still very important for people to regularly obtain it immunizations or risk the chance of catching something nasty. This is because many of the diseases that immunizations are created for have become extremely rare in our country. While the rarity is due to the strength of, and regular injection of, immunizations it is important to note that many diseases are still lingering: They have simply became scarce.
Keeping disease suppressed until beaten
The simple fact of the matter about why it is stressed for people to continue getting immunizations is it keeps the spread of disease at bay. A lot of the more serious diseases have seen a fall off of episodes as more and more people became immune, but beating back disease to the point we have is not enough.
