Some forms of vaccination are important and useful while others raise ethical and moral questions. For example, the 1976 vaccination against flu was a good idea but the consequences were expensive than the medical provision. Some conditions can be treated but thinking of vaccination with an ineffective medical regime makes the entire process unviable. For example, the numerous deaths and related consequences indicate the lack of efficacy when it comes to the medication. Any vaccination is aimed at elevating treatment complications and reduction of the medical problem to the socioeconomic environment. For example, vaccines against measles are important because of consequences of any epidemic. However, the H1N1 flu vaccination results in additional complications such as heart attack and even death to the elderly persons. The alternative to the vaccination regime is prevention and treatment.
H1N1 has been studied for a long time, and scientists know the characteristics and features of the medical problem. The scientists and researchers have proposed measures and strategies of preventing the medical condition. The prevention is better compared to vaccination. Through studies, prevention reduces the cost of the entire process compared to certain forms of vaccination, which leads to death. The vaccination sometimes is not successful, and it is costly to receive the vaccination dosage. In addition, the ineffectiveness of the vaccination results in additional costs such as visiting the hospital and receiving specialized treatment. For example, the article discusses the elderly who suffered from the medication. These individuals were taken to the hospital and received expensive medication, which cannot be compared with treating H1N1. Moreover, the complications meant that more resources were allocated. The allocation of the resources should have been directed towards the treatment of H1N1 patients rather than the use of vaccination. Hence, in some medical conditions, treatment is better than vaccination.
