Question and answer
How do you feel about vaccines? Do you think the benefits outweigh the risks? Would you recommend that parents follow vaccine recommendations for their children?
Some vaccines have a lot more potential to cause reactions than other vaccines. There's a whole ranking. Some parents will specifically choose to skip one or two vaccines that are well-known to cause reactions. [ Interestingly, the hepatitis B vaccine is one of the vacccines that's known to be fairly reactive and cause a severe side effect more often than a lot of the other vaccines. ]

Vaccines literally save lives everyday. The possible side effects can sound scary and it’s never acceptable that a child is damaged by a vaccine. It’s important to remember that all medical procedures have a risk of side effects. Vaccines are no different, but the risk of serious side effects is very small compared to the benefits vaccination provides.
Further, if there is a serious vaccine side effect there is a governmental system available to care for that child. While serious side effects are rare, parents are encouraged to report any severe side effects to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which serves to report, analyze, and make incidences of adverse side effects available to the public.

With the above explanation , Your weegy expert here do beleive that the benefits outweigh the risks and therefore it is highly recommended that parents follow vaccine recommendations for their children.

Vaccines have a consistent history of ending some of the worst scourges of mankind,such as polio, smallpox and plague.although some vaccines have side effects and controversy remains over mercury containing vaccines,the overwhelming majority of scientists and healthcare professionals recommend them for children.

I agree with Deanmoriarty, it ended the dreaded diseases. For me it's better not to use new vaccines which are considered to be in testing stage unless it's really needed
