In brief: Justified ??

Sounds like a skeptic ignoring the epidemics and losses we suffered to get here.
Ben Franklin lost a son to Smallpox & recorded his regret in not vaccinating him due to his own skepticism. As long as there is international air travel & pockets of these diseases around the world,our kids deserve the best protection from them we can develop.

In brief: All Recommended

The current recommended immunizations have all been well studied and monitered.
There safety record is unparalled for medical therapy. The millions of saved lives far, far outweigh any risks.They are all justified!

In brief: Justifiable?

It is a risk-benefit analysis.
The benefit of preventing a potentially fatal infection is weighed against potential toxicity. It is like deciding not to walk across a highway with a blindfold on or choosing to cook raw chicken before eating it.

In brief: All of them.

All are absolutely justifiable.
Remember that immunizations don't just help the individual, they prevent the spread of diseases.
