Anti-Vaccine Movement a 'Man-Made' Health Crisis, Scientists Warn

TUESDAY, July 2, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- The anti-vaccination movement is now a global crisis, an international panel of scientists say, and everyone must do more to combat it. "We are alarmed that the WHO [World Health Organization] this year declared vaccine hesitancy a top-10 international public health problem.
