We’ve all heard about them, but why is this anti-vaccination movement such a big deal? Well, Anti-vaxxers anti-vax because they have lost trust in the government, pharmaceutical companies, and the overall healthcare system. They do not believe the claims and that vaccines do indeed cause long-term problems for their children. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, in the first three months of 2019, cases of measles increased by 300%. They were down to around 100,000 in 2017 worldwide and are now over 120,000 worldwide in just the first three months.
