Benjamin, Mark. “The Vaccine Conflict.” ​Upi​, 2003, sks.sirs.com. Accessed 7 Mar. 2019.

“The Vaccine Conflict” is an article that discusses the problems with vaccines as well as

the biased involvement of the CDC. The CDC handles the vaccine industry, but is often

backed by large pharmaceutical companies.

The article is a good source for my paper because it brings awareness to the ethical issues

in the CDC regarding how they handle vaccines.

Vaccines 2.0: the Careful Parent's Guide to Making Safe Vaccination Choices for Your

Family ​is a book that encompasses the topics of the risks of vaccinating children, the ingredients

used in vaccines, and many more.

“Birth-18 Years Immunization Schedule” is a table that indicates the ages that certain

vaccines should be administered.

This website is a good reference because it allows parents to understand how many

vaccines and boosters are required at certain stages of life. Parents can also use this source to

understand the timing of vaccines before visiting the doctor’s office.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Children’s Vaccinations ​discusses the links

between vaccine dosage and childhood diseases. The book also talks about the pros and cons

of vaccines and how to make better decisions regarding their children.

This book is a good reference because the argument is not strictly anti-vaccination, and

includes reasons of why vaccinating your child could be beneficial. It also gives advice on

how to safely vaccinate your children.

“Vaccine Safety: Dosing Safety” is about the dosage of vaccines and if they are safe due to

the age of the child. The article discusses if it is sensible to give the same vaccination a

teenager would receive to an infant.

The article is a good source of information because it effectively explains why a number

of doses for a teenager could be very dangerous to an infant or smaller child.

Ellenberg, Susan S., and Robert T. Chen. “The Complicated Task of Monitoring Vaccine

Safety.”

Public Health Reports​, 0AD, pp. 10–21. ​SIRS Issues Researcher,​ sks.sirs.com. Accessed

7 Mar. 2019.

“The Complicated Task of Monitoring Vaccine Safety” discusses it is difficult to monitor

the adverse effects of vaccines on patients. Most of the time the side effects are not known

until the vaccine has been used widespread.

The article is beneficial to my research paper because it defines the other issue of how

there could be other side effects that occurred from vaccines that the CDC does not know when

reporting that certain vaccines are safe for use.

Feder, Lauren, and LeTrinh Hoang. ​The Parents' Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations:

The Parents' Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations: Practical Medical and Natural

Ways to Protect Your Child​ explains the issues of vaccinations and its side effects as well as

how to naturally strengthen your child’s immune system.

This book is a good reference because it is written by a doctor who is also a parent. The

fact that Feder is both a parent and doctor assures the audience that the opinion on vaccines is

not biased since she has children of her own, The guide also offers remedies to keep your

child healthy as well as avoid side effects to the vaccines.

Disease Control and Prevention, 18 Mar. 2019,

“Making the Vaccine Decision” is the CDC explaining the risks, effects, ingredients, and

etc of vaccines. It allows the audience to understand what the CDC believes parents should

know when making the decision about vaccinating their children.

This article is a good reference because it can be used to compare to other sources that

oppose some of the CDC’s reasoning on vaccinating decisions.

Current Controversies: Vaccines, ​is a periodical that covers both sides of the pros and

cons of vaccinations. It also is composed of different sources from other fields in regards to

vaccinations.

Current Controversies: Vaccines ​is a beneficial source because its information is

composed from different credible sources that support both the pros and cons of vaccinating

children. It contributes to my paper by giving more information on both sides of the

argument and a better idea of what parents have to consider when reading a book like this

one.

Vaccines​ is a beneficial resource because it offers many different perspectives on the

vaccines controversies, and they are also published essays making them credible resources.

Should Vaccinations for Youth Be Mandatory i​ s a book that discusses if vaccines are in

dire need, accounts of adverse effects of vaccines, ethical issues, and etc. This is important

for any parent to know before taking their child to go to receive vaccinations.
Jones 6

Should Vaccinations for Youth Be Mandatory i​ s a good resource because it discusses all

of the important topics that should be understood when concerning vaccines. Most

importantly, the book has more accounts to reference when discussing adverse effects of

vaccinations.

Welch, Matt, et al. “Should Vaccines Be Mandatory?” ​Reason,​ 2014, pp. 18–26. ​SIRS Issues

Researcher​, sks.sirs.com. Accessed 7 Mar. 2019.

“Should Vaccines Be Mandatory?” Discusses the issue of if people should be able to

make the decision of whether to be vaccinated or not. In other rights, could vaccinating someone

be against their human rights if it is mandatory.

The article is a wonderful source for the paper because although it talks about how

mandatory vaccinations could be against human rights, the article also discusses how not being

vaccinated could be harmful to others.
