Vaccines Have Made Our World A Healthier Place To Live
As you will see below, vaccines have become the miracle that the world needed to protect itself against these deadly diseases. Pre-vaccine era estimated annual morbidity in the US vs the most recent reports of disease cases in the US.
This inforgraphic designed by Leon Farrant is based on Centers for Disease Control & Prevention data collected in 2007 on past incidence of these diseases. This was published here, in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
There is recently an unsubstantiated fear about vaccines. We hope this data will help you to realise what life was like before vaccines, when hundreds of thousands of people died each year from diseases that are now nearly obsolete.
