What would happen if we stopped getting vaccinations?
In the middle of the last century several diseases that we wouldn't even think to be worried about such as whooping cough, polio, and the measles, were killing millions. The reason this immortality rate from these diseases have gone down is one simple answer. Vaccination. Vaccination are crucial in protection, and not only to yourself. Vaccination protect you and and every person you surround yourself around (refer to our Community Immunity article for more information on this subject). Just because the immortality rate from these diseases have gone down, it does not mean that the diseases have disappeared. Therefore, vaccinations are still relevant. According the CDC if we stopped vaccinating “We could soon find ourselves battling epidemics of diseases we thought we had conquered decades ago.”
