Why mandatory vaccinations are critical, visualized
The mission of the federal Department of Health and Human Services is a simple one: “to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans.” One of the most effective ways to protect the health of Americans has proven to be vaccinations against infectious diseases. Before the introduction of the polio vaccine in the mid-1950s, tens of thousands of people were afflicted. In 1952, nearly 3,200 people died. By 1960, there were a few hundred cases, and 90 deaths. These days, there are usually no reported cases in a year.
