In the past few years, a number of people have come out against vaccinations. Despite having no medical research backing their claims up, some celebrities have taken to the media to complain that vaccines cause a host of really bad problems in children. The opposite is true. There are many reasons to go to your local health clinic and make sure you and your family are up to date on your vaccinations.
Consider these facts:
- Without vaccinations, 2.5 million would die from diseases they caught without the shots every year.
- Nearly four million people could be saved by new and underused vaccines.
- Vaccines are responsible for the eradication of polio and small pox. These two horrible diseases were considered major health problems just 60 years ago.
