The Flu ShotHave you ever thought if it would be right that you should have to take the flu shot by law. The problem is that some people think that if the flu shot was required by law it would be bad and harmful but other people think that it would be good for people. I think that the flu shot should be mandatory or required by law.My first point is that the flu vaccine protects the “herd” or group.
Herd immunity is when a critical portion of a population is vaccinated for the flu and it will make so most of the community is protected. Children and adults rely on herd immunity because if they cant get vaccinated for the flu shot they will still be protected. Herd immunity also helps people who haven’t got the flu shot but can get it by not making them sick.
My second point is that the flu changes every season. The flu virus is different for each season so they add multiple strains to the vaccine. This means if you didn’t get the flu one season you can still get it the next season. So if the flu shot is mandatory you wouldn’t get sick because you would be protected every season of the flu virus.
My final point is the flus genetic code is hard to detect. The flus genetic code is hard to find and detect so it might seem you might not have it but you probably could. If the flu shot was mandatory then you wouldn’t have to worry about not detecting it because you would already not be able to get sick. If the flu shot was mandatory no one would have to really worry about getting sick because they would have to take the shot.The other side of this argument thinks that flu shots should not be mandatory.
One reason the other side might think this is vaccine can cause serious and bad side effects. That is a good answer but the side effects usually happen to people that cant have the vaccine and if the flu shot was mandatory it would only be mandatory to the people who can take it. I think that the flu shot should be mandatory because the reasons i think this is the flu vaccine protects the herd, the flu shot changes every season, and the flus genetic code is hard to detect. I think people should take the flu more serious because it can be deadly.
The flu shot can save many lives and help many people.
