Infection control and vaccination

The act of getting vaccinated is crucial for safeguarding ourselves and our children from sickness. Vaccinations effectively prevent approximately 3 million deaths worldwide annually.

In the United Kingdom, the introduction of vaccines has eradicated or significantly diminished the occurrence of devastating ailments such as smallpox, polio, and tetanus, which were responsible for the deaths or disabilities of millions.

Diseases like measles and diphtheria have witnessed a remarkable decline of up to 99.9% since the implementation of their respective vaccines.

If individuals discontinue receiving vaccinations, there is a potential for infectious diseases to rapidly resurface and spread once more.
