It is a risk-benefit: Analysis. The benefit of preventing life-threatening diseases like measles, tetanus, whooping cough and polio as compared to the potential, usually minimal adverse reactions. Would you walk across the jersey turnpike with a blindfold on or eat raw chicken without cooking it? Same thing. All the vaccines are necessary.
