Vaccines Medical Controversy Paper

I’m studying and need help with a Biology question to help me learn.



your assignment is to research (internet or library) ONE area of controversy regarding the use vaccines.

Examples of vaccine controversies include:

  • Whether or not the MMR, DTaP, or other vaccines cause conditions such as autism, ADHD, diabetes, etc.
  • Whether or not states should require vaccines for school attendance (It is the state that has the power to mandate vaccination, not the individual school districts or school boards)
  • Should there be parental exemptions for mandated vaccinations? Religious exemptions?
  • Recommendations regarding who should receive the HPV vaccine (e.g. gender, age)
  • The schedule by which vaccines are given to infants and toddlers. Too frequent? Too many?
  • How well the vaccines works to prevent these diseases versus potential side effects of the vaccines
  • Whether or not politicians should be involving themselves in vaccination policy making
  • Who best to trust? Doctors, Big Pharma, anti-vaxxers, holistic health advocates, bloggers
  • There are many other vaccine controversies on the internet—you may choose any controversy that interests you
