    Default WHO says non-vaccination a top global health threat

    People who choose not to vaccinate has emerged into a global health threat in 2019, said the World Health Organization.
    "Vaccine hesitancy," which WHO describes as "the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines" is among the organization's top global threats for the year, according to a report released Tuesday.
    WHO said that vaccines prevent 2 million to 3 million deaths a year and that improved global coverage on vaccinations could stop an additional 1.5 million deaths annually.

    Most of you probably know I don't agree with this. I posted it because I thought WHO's characterization of the supposed threat posed by non-vaccination was way over the top, even for the super-pro-vaccination WHO.

    Absolutely. It's important to know what the rest of the world is thinking about this topic. I'll add that better sanitation and clean potable water, especially in developing countries, could prevent the spread of many infectious diseases, and improved nutrition could limit the duration and severity of those diseases.
