May 15, 2018

When it comes to public health, one of the easiest ways to avoid becoming susceptible to disease that is widespread in many populations is to ensure that you’re vaccinated against diseases that are preventable. Authorities can mandate certain vaccine programs to keep their citizens healthy; however, vaccine programs face many challenges.

People opt out of these immunizations for a variety of reasons, and in many areas, ongoing programs are offset by funding decreases, mass population movements, refugee concerns, and security issues that affect delivery to vulnerable populations.
