ANTI-VACCINATION is a major health issue in the 21st century which has resulted in thousands of deaths and the resurgence of once eliminated diseases. How many disease outbreaks are currently ongoing as a result of vaccine hesitancy?

Vaccine hesitance – another term for anti-vaccination – is on a steady rise throughout the world, and has been since the late Nineties. The result is a serious uptick in cases of particular diseases which with sustained vaccine administration might no longer exist.

A number of potentially deadly disease are making their mark in countries which have large populations rejecting the vital practice.
