I am not by any means anti-vaccine, but with some, I do question their necessity.
For example, how necessary is the flu vaccine every year? For some age groups and for people with certain conditions already present, it makes some
sense, but overall, it isn't blanket protection to a high degree even for those people.
What about the chicken pox vaccine? For most children, it's a minor irritant of a disease only notable in its length. As you get older, it gets more
difficult, and for adults, I can certainly see the shingles vaccine even though shingles won't kill, only make you wish you were dead. I watched my
grandmother get that one twice.
And while HPV might prevent cancer, you only pick it up through risky behavior. If you don't intend to engage in that sort of behavior, why do you
need it? Why make it mandatory as if you just assume every person will engage in said behavior? Shouldn't it be indicated for certain risk groups and
not for the general population?
