#VaccinesWork – the proof is in the infographic

In honor of World Immunization Week I am posting daily about the awesomeness of vaccines.  As I have said before, I love a good infographic and here is an especially great one from the CDC about the effectiveness of vaccines.  Seriously – case closed?  I think so but I’ll still post every day about it to be sure.

  1. Great question, Mercy! While I can’t really understand it myself, I do think these two pieces offer some of the rationales: this essay by Kristen Bell lays out why she was originally hesitant about vaccines but came to be strongly in favor: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kristen-bell/vaccines-are-safe-and-facts-are-your-friends_b_7083504.html and this article (http://www.businessinsider.com/who-is-andrew-wakefield-2015-2) explain how a fraudulent research paper published in esteemed public health journal, The Lancet, boasted a link between vaccines and autism. It has since been disproven countless times but the myth that vaccines can cause autism persists.
