Measles Outbreaks on the Rise Thanks to Anti-Vaxxers

Anti-vaccine sentiment for COVID-19 is now affecting other vaccines and causing parents to become hesitant about getting their children vaccinated against other diseases. This has led to outbreaks of diseases that should be under control, given we have adequate resources to deal with them. A report from November found that a measles outbreak in Ohio sickened over a dozen unvaccinated children, 75% of whom became hospitalized. The herd immunity threshold for measles is 95% and when it drops below that, outbreaks can start to occur. If anti-vax sentiment persists, it could make it so that populations all across the country don’t have enough people immunized to prevent outbreaks. This is a devastating result of the vaccine hesitancy and cynicism that has affected the country especially since the COVID-19 pandemic.
