More than 20 life-threatening diseases can now be prevented by vaccination.


Most diseases that can be prevented by vaccination are no longer common in the population. However, if people stop getting the vaccines relevant to them, we may see a reappearance of vaccine-preventable diseases across the world.


Vaccines have helped:

  • Eradicate smallpox in the last 60 years
  • Get closer to eradicating polio
  • Decrease deaths related to measles by 73% between 2000 and 2018 worldwide
  • Decrease cases of rubella by 97% between 2000-2018
