PROMPT:  In the United States currently there is a debate as to whether or not children should be vaccinated.  The side that says that everyone should be vaccinated says that vaccines are safe and that vaccines keep children from getting diseases that in the past was sure to kill these children.  The side that is against vaccination states that vaccines are dangerous to children.  That vaccines contain unsafe ingredients.  Write an informative paper where you show both sides of the issue using facts from the readings.
