They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but why bother when we have a more suitable doctor’s remedy: embrace needles to scare the measles. It is common for a parent to want what’s best for their loved ones, but it is even more useful to know when a vaccine is highly needed.
There is nothing better than a quick measles epidemic to make the parents think twice, before deciding not to harm their little angels with even a single mosquito bite. Statistics show that now, more than a quarter of the population are more fired up than they have ever been about the issue of vaccination.
According to one of the latest researches conducted in May, at the University in Michigan, more than one third of the parents feel even more secure after administrating their children the necessary vaccines. Almost 25% more of breadwinners can now rest assured by believing that vaccines are now safer than they ever were.
Based on the statistics, between the year 2014 and 2015, almost two dozen measles outbreaks have been reported. It is due to all these outbreaks, not only of measles but also cough that parents all over the U.S. have begun to worry about their children physical health.
In 2015, sources have it, that more than 178 people have been struck with measles after visiting two of the most popular Disney theme parks from California. What is interesting is, that none of the above members have been vaccinated before that precise moment.
Although the Disney incident has brought upon itself much attention, on the other hand, the year 2014 can highly be considered even more controversial, due to more than 23 outbreaks that have been flagged among the Ohio community.
Scientists have reached the conclusion that unvaccinated foreigners, are in fact to blame for the spreading of measles on the American soil. At the end of the experiment, survey has shown that parental views are indeed affected by such outbreaks which have the role of opening their eyes, so that they may now believe, that childhood vaccines are efficient and do not represent a serious threat for their dear ones.
Health should never be taken for granted. Even though most children are vaccinated throughout their first years in life, a great majority of the population still refuses to come on board. In order to spread awareness and share safety measures, the media has also become a part of this issue. By becoming involved with the health crisis, people can now be more easily informed about what is best and what not.
