Argumentative Essay Outline


1) Intro
a) Hook: With the option of protecting your childs life further than any physical
possibilities, it is hard to believe there is any chance of rejecting such a claim.
b) Vaccinations have been readily available to the public for various decades, however,
their usage rate, has not been that favorable. Despite a plethora of vaccination cases, which
resulted in the prevention of diseases, there are many arguments posed against this procedure.
Childhood vaccination has been highly favored by doctors; yet, claims made by parents have led
to an outbreak in anti-vaccination movements. There are many Vaccine Preventable Diseases
(VPD) which have favored vaccines in an ongoing debate over the necessity of parents to get
their children vaccinated.
c) With substantial evidence pointing towards a decrease in outbreaks of VPDs, there
should be more favorable discussions for the implementation of vaccines and their financial,
societal, and medical results.
2) There are financial benefits to increasing childhood vaccination rates
a) They are not expensive to get.
i) Prices range for all types yet average around $40
ii) Multiple health care companies and doctors who are pro vaccination work to
make this readily available to a vast majority of the population
iii) Decreases future costs if there were to be a VPD or other serious infection,
resulting in expensive medication
b) Societal issues being resolved by vaccinations
i) If there is a larger number of children vaccinated in a society, there will be a
smaller chance of outbreak and vice-versa (not only thinking about yourself in this
situation)
ii) Claims made about children who do not get vaccinated include the spreading
of diseases that have been dormant for years (such as a recent increase in measles)
iii) Looked at as societys best healthcare investments due to the possibilities that
come from successful results
c) Medical results lie at the forefront of the vaccination debate.
i) Sharp decrease in the number of VPD and other diseases prevented by
vaccination ( measles, malaria, tetanus, chicken pox, pertussis, etc.)
ii) Medical examinations have shown positive signs resulting from the use of
vaccinations in children
iii) Studies of demographics showed that there is an increase in the age of
individuals due to prevention of diseases, assisted greatly by vaccination
3) Refuting Opponents Arguments
a) Groups of parents across the world believe that childhood vaccinations are suggested
by physicians and health care providers solely for financial benefits

i) Much data has been shown that proves doctors are pushing towards
childhood vaccination for the prevention of outbreaks and spreading of
threatening diseases
b) Growing concerns linking thoughts about various potential diseases spurring from
vaccinations
i) An array of studies and examinations have been conducted to show a very low
number of cases where vaccination has caused an infection or disease as a result
4) Conclusion
a) It is vital that parents realize the potential benefits that can come from childhood
immunization. Through their financial benefits of depreciating long-term costs, increasing
societal awareness, and finally leading to positive medical results through decreases in infections
and VPDs, parents can raise awareness for those who believe that this is not imminent.
b) If this situation is not brought to the forefront of these arguments, there could be a
surprising increase in cases which have not been dealt with in many years. Progress in
medicine has come to see a lack of these diseases and can potentially be caught off guard
if there is a resurgence of such impacts. There is a possibility to avoid this if proper work
is done.
