There is a new affliction that is threatening the world population. It is so new that it hasn’t even been officially declared to be a disease, but the World Health Organization and bioethicists are already waving the red flag of warning.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is very concerned about the problem of “vaccine hesitancy,” which they say is threatening the effectiveness of their worldwide vaccination program. In short, some parents are not automatically allowing their babies to be vaccinated even though such services are available. They are pausing, thinking, and in many cases walking away with their babies in their arms, and leaving the vaccine filled hypodermic syringes to be used for someone else. Adults also are not responding to calls for receiving vaccines even when they are free.
As always, WHO is on the quest for 100% compliance with all vaccine schedules, and is warning the world that vaccine hesitancy is causing unnecessary illness and death. They believe that 1.5 million children die each year from causes that could be prevented by vaccines.
The WHO press release date August 18, 2005 stated.
“Vaccines can only improve health and prevent deaths if they are used, and immunization programs must be able to achieve and sustain high vaccine uptake rates. Vaccine hesitancy is an increasingly important issue for country immunization programs. “
