Parents have not been vaccinating themselves or their children and it has gotten to the point where there are groups/communities starting anti-vaccination movements.

There are reasons why parents don’t vaccinate, but the reasons that they use can be easily debunked with a little bit of research. It’s important to vaccinate yourself and your children because, if you don’t, you are taking a big risk of catching certain diseases like polio, measles, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), rubella (German measles), mumps, tetanus, rotavirus, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), and many more.

If people keep continuing with the anti-vaccination movements and glorifying them, then soon these illnesses and diseases are going to spread around the world and become common illnesses.

The only way we can stop this movement is by educating everyone on this topic. It’s very important to research both sides of the situation before forming a opinion about it, because you can easily be misinformed about the topic and eventually it will cause serious problems like this.

We can spread awareness about this topic by making articles about the information and even telling stories about people or children who died from diseases that could’ve been prevented from using vaccination. Doctors can also play a big part of the prevention of the anti-vaccination communities by informing their patients on why it is important to take the vaccinations. Spreading this important information will help people become aware of the consequences of not vaccinating themselves and their children.
