More than 1 in 10 children worldwide missed out on lifesaving #vaccines such as #measles, #diphtheria and #tetanus in 2018: New data from WHO/@UNICEF

who.int/news-room/deta…
Globally, since 2010, vaccination coverage with 3 doses of #diphtheria, #tetanus & #pertussis and the first dose of the #measles vaccine has stalled at around 86% - not sufficient as 95% coverage globally is needed to protect against outbreaks of #vaccine-preventable diseases
Most unvaccinated children live in the poorest countries and are disproportionately in fragile or conflict-affected states.
Almost half are in just 16 countries:

Akhir-akhir ini, cukup banyak penolakan #imunisasi baik oleh orangtua, sekolah hingga pemda ☹️

Padahal, menolak #vaksin sama aja dengan membangkitkan “pembunuh berantai” yg pernah merenggut jutaan nyawa & berpotensi mengulang lagi malapetaka di masa lalu! ☠️

A THREAD 🔥🔥🔥
Vaksin adalah larutan yg berisi kuman penyakit (patogen) yg sudah dilemahkan.

Karena patogennya sudah dilumpuhkan, vaksin relatif aman untuk orang sehat dan cukup untuk membuat tubuh bereaksi dan membentuk antibodi yg bersesuaian.
Vaksin merupakan salah satu pencapaian terbesar umat manusia dalam bidang kesehatan.

#Vaksinasi telah menyelamatkan sekitar 6,4 juta nyawa anak-anak dan mencegah 450 juta penyakit di lebih dari 70 negara berkembang selama abad ke-21 saja!
