Gally 1 Siddarth Gally Professor Alexander Ocasio English 1900 1 July 2016 My topic is mandatory vaccination for students entering schools and the health risks the that having non vaccinated students has for the school and the local community. The local context of my topic is specifically to schools in the state of California. In 2015 California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that eliminated the states personal and religious belief exemptions.   The law requires children who attend a school or daycare center in California to be vaccinated for childhood diseases like measles, mumps and whooping cough. Children who are unable to receive vaccines due to an immune-system deficiency or certain allergies could still acquire a medical exemption from the requirements. The acceleration of the creation of the California legislation was pushed forth because of a measles outbreak in December 2014 in Disneyland in California. At least 40 people who visited or worked at Disneyland contracted measles. The parties involved in this case are the state of California against its residents who are protesting this piece of legislation and would like to see reform in vaccination. Purpose: I would like to see vaccination and the issues alongside it to become more of a talking point than it is already. I would like to see the Federal and State laws regarding vaccinations go under review. I would like people to be aware of the health risks that are enabled when a person is not vaccinated and how it poses a threat to not only an individual but to the greater population that they are a part of. I would like for people to understand the health risks they are taking by not having themselves or their children vaccinated. On the other side I want the parents and people who are against vaccination to also have the facts and statistics and anecdotes that they have for their side to be presented so they too can have an argument. Audience: The audience I want to address are current parents, and people who are in the future intending to reproduce. The stakeholders and the decision makers in the context of my topic are the same people as my audience, parents and people who intend on having children in the future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
