Recently, there has been a lot of information in the news related to vaccination, sparking discussion and debates. The recent outbreak of measles, in particular, has raised questions about why vaccines are important and whether people should be vaccinated.
There are many perspectives and opinions about this issue, which can create confusion among many individuals. As a public health professional and a concerned member of our society, I have a very clear perspective on this issue, which is very much in favor of vaccination.
