This is like comparing my daughter's foot surgery to vaccines. They're medical decisions we make for our kids, and both have pros and cons- that's where the similarity ends. One is a procedure to repair a defect and allow the child to live a more "normal" life than she would have been able to otherwise. The other is a procedure performed on a healthy child. It does not attempt to repair a defect, but instead gambles for a chance of protection against something the child may or may not encounter.
My daughter was perfectly healthy. There is no safety issue with being deaf. Without an implant she can learn language, become literate, go to college and be a successful adult. She would be healthy and normal she would just do all that in a different language. Deaf people do not consider themselves as disabled or impaired at all. They consider themselves a cultural and linguistic minority.
Just as I considered what would be best for my daughter's future and what is worth risking her safety for, the same applies for thoughtful consideration of vaccination.
