serious disease, which has killed more people than all the wars combined, has
been wiped from the Earth by vaccines. It’s a shame that recently the
safety of vaccines has been questioned. It’s time people focused on the
Vaccines have long been one of the safest medical treatments. No credible
study has proven otherwise. Just like other medicines, vaccines are approved
by the FDA. By and large, the rewards of prevention are worth the small risk
of any vaccine’s side effects.
Another fact is that vaccines for mature Americans can save lives. When
seniors get pneumonia shots, they could lengthen their life expectancy by
FOUR years. Flu shots will also protect seniors from a debilitating illness
with life-threatening consequences. Vaccinations are generally affordable and
they are SAFE.
