A cornea renaissance in the United States is causing a negative reaction to vaccine critics, from congressional hearings that cause dissemination of misinformation about vaccines to state measures that would complicate the parents' refusal to immunize their children.
The State of Washington, where the worst outbreaks For more than two decades, the bark has weakened nearly 70 people and cost over 1 million dollars; two state measures are being taken by the state legislature to ban parents from using personal or philosophical exceptions to Avoid immunization of school-age children. Both have the support of two parties, despite strong anti-vaccination moods in some parts of the state.
Lawmakers in Arizona, Iowa and Minnesota introduced similar measures for the first time. These efforts have caused an emotional, sometimes ugly response, by those who oppose what they see as attempts to trample their rights. Opponents of the Arizona Draft Law, who died quickly, described the loss of weighty vaccine requirements, as the Holocaust, and compared the sponsor of a Jewish bill with a Nazi.
In Vermont, lawmakers are trying to end the state religious dismissal four years after eliminating a philosophical release. In New Jersey, where legislators have unsuccessfully tried to strengthen religious release, the bill on its abolition has completely changed on the floor of the General Assembly.
While it is too early to say in the legislative season how much of the state efforts to increase vaccine release will be incorporated into the law, some public health advocates say that ill-considered illnesses preventing vaccination create shifts in public thinking.
"The wave begins to return," said Michel Mello, professor of law and medical research and policy at Stanford University.
Diane Peterson of the Immunization Coalition, a nonprofit group in Minnesota, stated that "there is a growing consensus that public authorities are taking a bold step to require all children to be vaccinated, with the only exception being those who can not get a vaccine for medical reasons. "
Against the backdrop of growing public pressure, websites that have been the platform for anti-vaccine moves to make false statements also make changes. Pinterest has blocked all vaccine searches to stop the spread of misinformation, and Facebook is considering removing anti-vaccination content from its recommendations. YouTube said it also attracted video advertising against the vaccine, arguing that they violated its policy against "harmful or dangerous" acts.
US House and Senate scheduled rare bipartisan hearings this week, and then investigate the causes of recent outbreaks.
"If the hesitation of indecision persists – or even expanding – it can seriously undermine these important achievements," Sense Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) And Patty Murray (D-Wash.) – Senate Health, Education , Labor and Chairman of the Pensions and Democrats Committee – wrote to federal health officials.
All these actions take place against the backdrop of growing global concern over hesitation when cases of bark have increased due to gaps in coverage of vaccination. For the first time, the World Health Organization listed vaccine fluctuations as one of the top 10 global threats in 2019.
