With reference to the thousands of family’s affected by reactions to vaccines and are not entitled to compensation as families in other countries are:
1) I think there should be avenues for support if a child is permanently disabled as a direct result of a vaccination (by participating in the vaccination program they are assisting in the maintenance of the herd immunisation of our country after all)
2) The numbers of any reaction reported and associated with medicine (including vaccines) in Australia are recorded at http://apps.tga.gov.au/PROD/DAEN/daen-report.aspx . These reports do not confirm causality but are a point for adverse reactions to be recorded from which the government can follow up on the safety of the reported medicines. Anyone can submit reports to this data base and the following information is from the TGA website:
“Each year the TGA receives more than 17,000 reports of suspected adverse events to medicines and vaccines. In 2013 about 55% of these reports came via pharmaceutical companies, 17% from state and territory health departments, 10% from hospitals and hospital pharmacists and the rest from community pharmacists, general practitioners and consumers.
The TGA asks for contact details from people making reports so that it can seek further information about suspected adverse events. The TGA does not accept anonymous reports.
If you have any concerns about an adverse event it is important to also speak to a health professional.”
With reference to comment about no studies having been done to compare the long term health of vaccinated verse unvaccinated individuals –there have been studies and I could only imagine that there might be other studies going on that haven’t yet been completed given that for any study of that type they would need to be long term studies (>15-20 years or more) to have any scientific significance. I found the…...

My View

...When talking about my personal ethical viewpoint I learned a lot about my own personal ethics there my different resources. I learned a lot about my center values that interdependence is my goal. And combining the rights of individuals with what is the best for the community. I am more balanced than reasonable, I believe in the universal rules that apply to everyone. My classic values are self-control and justice I value individual and common balance within the community. This balance can be accomplished by giving trust and regularly dealing with members of the community. I think that everyone is liable for themselves and their compulsion to do the right thing in any situations. A decent person should fulfill that responsibility and be fair at the same time. My tools for fixing problems are straightforward. I think through the problem and try to solve the best way possible. Being accountable and doing what is fair is very important to me. As constancy and reliability are very important to me if I say I am going to do something then I will do it. My blind spot would be deeply be that sometimes I get a bit blunt when it comes to justice and even thought I might not see it. It causes involuntary upset and pain in a condition. My strengths are giving everyone a change to follow their personal ethical way but doing it the right way. My weakness is letting the people consume me and having me follows their ethical way even if it not right in my eyes. Behaviors can be very effective......

Sociology and My View

...Ethical/Personal Issues of Physician Assisted Suicide Physician assisted suicide is a very passionate topic for me. I totally agree that it should be legalized and used when a terminally ill patient has totally used every possible avenue of treatment and there is nothing left to do. As a Utilitarian you definitely want the right thing to be done. Then what is right is right and wrong is wrong. I am sure that in egoism there would be a problem because they would only want to be the hero so to speak and do what is correct of the family and everyone else’s needs. As we go through the issue you will see different views and feelings involving all providers involved which are doctors, nurses, patients, friends, and family members. What is physician assisted suicide? For the lack of a better term physician assisted suicide will be addressed as “euthanasia”. Euthanasia is defined broadly as “the mercy killing of the hopelessly ill, injured or incapacitated” (Pozgar, 2010). Euthanasia is a Greek word meaning “good death” or “easy death” (Pozgar, 2010). As a healthcare worker/provider for many years I have come to have great feelings on passive euthanasia as well as many other healthcare individuals have. We must discuss the fine lines of legal issues as well as ethical issues. Is there a right or a wrong, when it comes to the end of life for an individual? Who really needs to understand anyone’s wishes and fulfill them? There are strong feelings involved in these......

My Own View or Reality

...My View of Reality In my journey in finding the nature of reality, I have encountered philosophers of different views. There is Parmenides who says that the real is being(one) which is permanent; on the other hand, Heraclitus says what is real is becoming which is changing. While Plato who sided with Parmenides says what is real is the world of Forms, the world that reflects our world today. However, Aristotle says that the real are matter and form. Furthermore, Levinas stresses the importance of the other as if your relationship with the other helps you fulfill your being a person. That is really true if you will live it. Another philosopher, St. Thomas Aquinas says what is real is being “that which exists” wherein his essence and existence is a participation or came from the Pure Act/ God who acted his act of existence. On the other hand, Heidegger makes a turn of these Western views of metaphysics. Heidegger claims that what is real is that the nothing which makes being possible and reality is the unfolding and keeping of Being. Thus, for Heidegger reality is whole and dynamic. This is compared to Buddhistic view of reality. Buddhism believes that reality is interdependently arising which is impermanent and no separation. Moreover, Derrida adds something. He believes that meaning is impossible for no matter how you process to signify the meaning of something, you could not really get the meaning of that something. So, what......

My World View

...defend robustly your own worldview. The three components that make up my personal worldview are God, ethics, and spiritual knowledge - because they play a vital role in all my thoughts, experiences, and life decisions. Putting God first in my life is at times quite difficult. For a Christian, it may be the most difficult thing to do. As an indication of faith it’s probably designed to be difficult. God has immense knowledge to communicate to each one of us, but He must always be put first in our lives if we are to obtain the knowledge. Since I’ve learned to view my life from God's endless perception it has become easier to comprehend what will last eternally and what will be demolished. My faith in a loving and forgiving God plays an imperative part in my day to day life. Throughout my life, being a Christian and living out my faith has been difficult and demanding. The people of this world do not always respect the ones who take a stand and do the right thing. The normal thing to do is to portray the ways of the world. The world encourages you to do what feels right and look out for one’s own self. In law enforcement there are always times when I will have to choose between my code of ethics and the police subculture ways of conducting ethical dilemmas or other given situations. The benefit of being a Christian police officer is that even when I don’t have a partner, the Holy Spirit never leaves my side. Everyday ethical dilemmas can test any individual in every way......

My World View Christianity

...My World View Christianity 305 Inst. Dr. Harold Ostrander Our assignment is to state our world view and defend it. It is much easier for me to defend this on paper than it would in person. I absolutely hate discussing religion (with someone of another faith, or without faith) and politics. Both normally lead to frustrated feelings from both sides because one couldn’t convince the other to his view. Of course throughout class it is obvious I have a Christian world view, and it is difficult to comprehend those around me (in my culture) may not have the same world view. I believe the only way to Heaven is to be saved by professing Jesus as our Savior, and asking for forgiveness of our sins. We are spiritually born again into a new life with God and His teachings as our guide, and also for our reason to live. God renews our faith, cleanses us of our wickedness, and refreshes our soul. Then we are also baptized, a symbolic way of washing away our sins and through the grace and mercy of Jesus our slate is wiped clean. One aspect of Christianity that non-Christians can’t seem to understand is that clean slate may get a little soiled now and again. But when you have faith that Jesus has saved you and will forgive you, there’s a real comfort that is called hope. We aren’t perfect and we know it. If we had to be perfect I suspect Jesus would be lonely in Heaven! We would also have no hope of eternal life with him, and I can’t think of anything else that could be...

Pros of Vaccinations

...Administration (FDA) regulate all vaccines to ensure safety and effectiveness. No federal laws mandating vaccination exist, but all 50 states require certain vaccinations (exemptions allowed) for children entering public schools (ProCon.org, 2013). Children who are not vaccinated have a higher death rate than children who have obtained vaccinations. There are many arguments as to whether vaccinations are safe for children to receive. Vaccines should be a requirement for children because they help prevent diseases, minimize the risks for some disease and increase economic benefits. Vaccines are designed to put foreign antigens into the body so the body will produce antibodies to fight it off. When an antigen is introduced into the body and an antigen-antibody formation is produced, an immune response is stimulated. The body produces two types of immune response to ensure maximum immunity from disease. Vaccines provide children with the opportunity to receive immunity against the disease rather than actually contracting disease. The advantage of just having immunity against the disease is the fact that there will be fewer complications. Fewer complications leads to a decreased risk of stroke, heart disease, post herpetic neuralgia and pneumonia (Nazarko, 2013). Vaccines are very essential in preventing many diseases and the possibility of death. There are certain vaccinations that were not available many years ago. As a result, numerous people died from diseases that were......

Vaccinations

...Throughout the test of man, vaccinations have proven their worth at crucial points to protect the health and welfare of the world. Vaccinations started with the first smallpox vaccine developed more than two centuries ago by Edward Jenner and has grown to eradicating/controlling diseases like polio, hepatitis, and other volatile diseases. However, there has been plenty of controversy over the effectiveness and safety of whether vaccinations are even necessary. As a society, we either take a risk of not getting vaccinated, which could possibly lead to costly hospitalizations due to illness or we take an important countermeasures towards exposing our children and ourselves to vaccine-preventable diseases. This is a no brainer! We must prepare our family and friends and step the future up for success. Vaccinating our children is one of the most important beginning steps we can take to protect their health and future. In 1998, a British medical journal (BMJ), concluded by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, claimed vaccinations were the root cause to child disorders like autism (Medical, 2011). In Wakefield’s study, children developed signs of autism days after getting the MMR vaccine. This study among others leads parents to question whether they should immunize their children or not. Even in 2007, actress Jenny McCarthy discussed her views on the national stage when she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show convinced that vaccines gave her son autism and seizures (Heuvel, 2013). ......

My Personal World View

...acceptance ("Spirituality," n.d.). Philosophically the search for spirituality encompasses asking the questions “Who, what and why are we, what is my purpose and where did I come from?” ("Spirituality," n.d.). Some people seek the answers to these questions through their religion while others find them through art or nature. Sociology’s definition of spirituality is based on the study of relationships where people influence other people. Sociology describes spirituality as spiritual practices, rituals, and social morality of a group of people (Seaward, 2013, p. 34). Thus sociology would encompass the idea of religious pluralism. Religious pluralism is the concept that no one religion is the way to god. Rather it recognizes that there are religions other than Christianity that seek to commune with god ("Pluralism," n.d.). The ecumenical concept has only recently become part of western culture ("Pluralism," n.d.). People perceive their lives through the lens of their experiences based on their cultural and spiritual background. Spirituality and scientism to the writer don’t mix. Scientism is placing an omnipresence on science and the knowledge it produces. Scientism believes if it is not scientifically proven than it must be rejected. The idea of spirituality is more of a philosophical belief. Whereas the postmodern world view does not include spirituality. The postmodern viewpoint denies any type of grand story of how we came to be ("Postmodern," n.d.). ......

My Writing and Community Issues

...Lockett Kaplan University My Writing and Community Issues As I first read this assignment, I was a little confused. I have trouble speaking proper English and I know when I start to write in college, I was confusing my teachers with my run-on sentences and incorrect grammar. Now that I have attended Kaplan my teachers have used constructed criticism that help me want to learn to write even more. There are so many reasons why my writing was not reaching my readers. I was afraid of just what I need to write. Not sure, of the correct topic for my paper, I would e-mail my teachers to give me more direction on just what I needed to be writing. I never proof- read my writing before I turned it in I would always be at the deadline because I would always wait until the last minutes and not read the direction correctly. I have problems with my critical thinking. I am fighting against a mental illness and my thoughts are never where they need to be. I have problems with run-on sentences not knowing where to start the next sentences. Now that I know all my problems with me writing, I will try very hard not to do them anymore besides asking my teacher, to confirm my writing assignments. My community has many problems, such as killings, stealing, knockout games, and Mental Illness associated with homeless. I have mental illness so does my sister and mother and father, I take medication, my mother and father has gotten help for their illness. Nevertheless, my sister refuse to......

My View

...Lord Lugard’s amalgamation was to free the home government i.e. Britain, from the shackles of huge expensive financial burden and to transfer the whole financial burden to a new amalgamated Nigeria. Concluding Remarks The end of the 1st world war facilitated and instilled the societal virtues and patriotism among the western educated elites. Government and private individuals therefore, took interest in the expansion of western education in their areas. The potentials of a country as stressed by Ayandele (1974) is more accurately gauged by the quality or level of its educated force because education (better still) good education enables people to think critically, reason analytically and develop the sense of further enquiry into issues of social, political and economic that brought further developments to Nigeria. The following deductions are carefully made after the discussions and analyses: (i) that Nigeria consisted of three separate “nations” of the colony of Lagos, Northern and Southern Protectorates before the outbreak of the 1st world war in 1914; (ii) that the three different units, ran a separate government; separate transport system, and had different attitudes to education; (iii) that in 1914 Frederick Lugard amalgamated the three units to become Nigeria Colony for Britain. (iv) that Nigerian societies existed piecemeal with variegated economic structures and cultural practice which were at different levels of development. (v) that the......

My Views on Writing

...Growing up as a young girl, I always loved trips to the library throughout my school years. Though I enjoyed reading and the joys it brought to me, I could not begin to imagine writing in any of the books I read. I often imagined writing the suspenseful, and exciting stories that I read and in time; I got the chance to try and do so. The writing process for me was a little more difficult than I had ever imagined. As I began writing the pieces necessary for my English classes as a young adult, I soon realized that there was more to writing and jotting down words on a piece of paper for an assignment. As a developing writer, I knew very little in the beginning, I am very aware now that writing a paper indeed takes a great amount of time and requires a lengthy process in order to write an exceptional paper. There were definitely a lot of wrongs, before I learned right, but I now can say that I have gradually developed the ability to write, organize and prepare a paper whenever needed. The most important part of the writing process to me, would have to be the editing process. Along with editing, there is revision, which is a crucial process to developing an exceptional paper. The editing and revising process of writing is crucial to the writer and the reader because with incorrect grammar, sentence structures, punctuation etc., it is not only difficult for the reader to understand, but for the writer as well if the reason they are writing cannot be understood the way it was......

My Leadership Point of View

...My leadership Point of View My background I grew up in an average income earning family; this means, we were neither poor nor rich. My mom and dad were both teachers who had six children. My father was a loving and caring father but died out of a kidney related disease when I was only eleven years old, so my mother had to bring us up as a single mother. As a result, we had to engage in subsistence farming to support the family income. My mother to this day is the most influential person in my life. With her meager pay, she was able to see us all through to the university. She inspired me. She is such a kind-hearted person, humble and very loving. As a result, her students always appreciate her as the best teacher. Indeed, she was the best of best teachers be it at home or in school. Her philosophy is, always create an air of love around you and honor everyone; both young and old, poor and rich. These have been my guiding principles in life. There was this boy in our school, my senior but classmate to my oldest brother. This boy was always late for school, grew emaciated, and was always in tattered uniform. Most parents forbid their children to have anything to do with this boy. However, my brother took him as his best friend. He shared his food with him and introduced him to our mom. My mom was always there for this boy. He was from such a poverty ridden home beyond description. You know, anytime I remember this incident tears run down my cheeks. He is called......
