Vaccines: Calling the Shots Essay
Throughout this course we have taken a pro-vaccination stance. I recognize that this may not reflect the
personal belief of every student and you may have felt nervous to voice your opinion against the status
quo. Here is an opportunity to make an argument either for or against vaccinations without judgment.
In this argument, you may support a middle ground (that you support vaccines but maybe we shouldn’t
receive so many at once, at a young age, etc.). However, I still expect your essays to be well-written and
coherent with a clearly identifiable thesis. Be sure to provide supporting evidence and proper citation
whenever necessary. The only difference is that I am letting you choose what the topic/research
question. The expected word count is 900+ words.
I DO NOT want a summary of the documentary-I was there
You are allowed to express concerns against vaccines-there are some cases of seizures and the

As of 2015, California has removed personal and religious exemptions for vaccines. Only medical
exemptions (children who are too sick to receive the vaccine) are allowed. Do you support this
notion? You may want to consider using evidence from the documentary in support of your
Do you think Florida (or your home state) should follow California’s example?
You may choose to focus on a specific vaccine, for example, should the HPV vaccine be required
of every student before starting high school?
Do the benefits of vaccines outweigh the risk associated with them (generally speaking or a
specific vaccine of your choice)?
Do people have a justified fear surrounding vaccines?
Should we keep or destroy the smallpox virus?
Should there be a federal law mandating vaccinations?
Seven states and D.C allow minors to get vaccinated. Should other states allows this policy? Is
this ethical? https://www.marketwatch.com/story/these-parents-didnt-vaccinate-their-kids-sonow-the-kids-are-doing-it-themselves-2019-02-11
How do you suggest we sway anti-vaxxers? Do you think the ways in which we have
conversations and the types of conversations we have is sufficient? Should we try other
Youtube has removed anti-vaccine advertisements. Is this constitutional? Should this be
allowed? Do you agree/disagree? https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-47357252
