Letter Published in Gulf News UAE On 24,Jan 16   Facebook debate: Vaccines being used today
Are you for or against vaccines? Readers debate whether they agree with vaccinating Side effects are low risk

Vaccines are important and should be used for children. The very common vaccines are polio, measles, mumps and rubella. Vaccines are safe and the side effects are low risk. Occasionally, anaphylactic reactions or allergic reactions have been reported. Today, many countries are administering polio vaccines to children as a preventive measure. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is monitoring the polio ratio on the global map. Any medicine will have side effects, but vaccines’ side effects are not reported as much. My opinion is that vaccines will help for a healthy environment, particularly in paediatrics.
