Outbreaks of measles across the globe have once again set off the great debate over vaccination. Since 2014, more than 22,000 cases of measles have appeared in Europe and the World Health Organization recently called for increased vaccination campaigns in the region. In the U.S., measles that began in Disneyland in late 2014 infected more than 150 people.

The development of vaccines and extensive childhood vaccination campaigns are among the most important public health achievements of the past 200 years. They have saved millions upon millions of lives each year and in some cases eradicated dangerous diseases not only locally but globally. The Earth was declared smallpox-free in 1980; in 2000, the United States asserted itself rid of measles.

Despite these successes, the anti-vaccination movement has been gaining traction in recent years, spurred on by religious opposition to vaccines and by the concerns raised by now-discredited studies that linked vaccines and autism. And as vaccination rates decline, the spread of these previously controlled diseases is on the rise.

As we discuss and debate, Origins offers the Top Ten things you should know about vaccines and vaccination efforts.
