The United Nations’ World Health Organization has listed ‘vaccine hesitancy’, which means refusal to accept vaccines, as one of the top-10 threats against health in 2019. General immunization rates are high, but the number of children not receiving some or all of recommended vaccines is on the rise. An Australian poll shows that lack of trust in institutions and government is a major factor. Although there are many studies that show vaccines are a major cause if autism, WHO continues to carry the flag for the pharmaceutical industry and insists that the studies are not valid. -GEG

Vaccine hesitancy, where people are reluctant or refuse to have themselves or their children vaccinated, is a growing trend among those fearing negative health outcomes from immunizations, such as the (non-existent) risk of autism. This collective uncertainty has now gathered such momentum that the World health Organization (WHO) sees fit to list vaccine hesitancy as one of its 10 threats to global health in 2019, alongside other more established dangers such as air pollution and drug-resistant bacteria.

While general immunization rates are high, the number of young children not receiving some or all of their recommended vaccines is on the rise. Health data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention charts a concerning uptick since 2000. According to its analysis, 1.3 percent of the children born in 2015 in the US went without any recommended vaccinations, up from 0.9 percent in 2011 and 0.3 percent in 2001.

The reasons for this are varied, but according to its vaccines advisory group, WHO lists complacency, inconvenience in accessing vaccines and a lack of confidence as driving factors in vaccine hesitancy. One survey carried out by the University of South Australia involving 604 pregnant women found a lack of trust in institutions and government to be a major factor, along with a parent’s lack of personal experience in their child falling sick.

It is possible that Trump may be the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law.

The reality is that there is more crime in minority neighborhoods, more need for police intervention, and more exposure to the possibility of excessive violence. The disintegration of support for police is a crushing blow particularly to those living in black communities where crime rates are soaring.
