Immunizations: International Statistics on Vaccines and the Autism Scare

A new page! Immunization to many diseases can be obtained through vaccination. The best countries at vaccinating infants are Hungary, China, Uzbekistan, Niue, Mongolia and the the Czech Republic.

Unfortunately, the Western world is suffering from an era of mass-media-led misinformation. Sensationalist newspapers in the 1990s made (wrong) claims about associations between some vaccines and autism leading to drops in vaccine uptake. As a result epidemics occurred in the UK between 2005 and 2013. Similar trends occurred in the Netherlands, Ireland and Italy. For developed countries to see these preventable diseases' numbers rise in this way is embarrassing, and indicates a loss of cultural wisdom.
