10:32 pm
blamed vaccine misinformation as a major threat to global health saying it could reverse progress made in tackling preventable diseases one example is measles provisional data from the w.h.o. indicates the have been more measles cases reported worldwide in the 1st half of this year than in any year since 2006 the rise in measles cases is driven by poverty in some places but in more developed countries is due to a growing wave of people who refuse immunization for their children in malaysia the health ministry says the number of anti vaccines as they're known is small but the government is considering a proposal to make certain vaccinations compulsory for children we all agree that our children must not be exposed to such unnecessary release especially when there is vaccination available and it's free for the children in. america are of me and his wife expecting their 1st child next month and they've decided that they'll follow the national immunization shed you know interest but not protect your child

10:34 pm
need for vaccination of the w.h.o. says the truth is that the diseases could be brought in by travelers from other countries yet another common myth.
