Vaccinations have saved 37 million children worldwide in the last 20 years Vaccination is one of the greatest achievements of medicine, today we learn, for example, that in the last 20 years alone, it has saved 37 million people who would die from 10 different infectious diseases.

Without access to certain vaccinations, such as those to protect against measles, rotavirus, HPV and hepatitis B virus, children born in 2019 are 45% more likely to die before the age of 5 than vaccinated children. Even for adults, the difference in mortality between unvaccinated and vaccinated people is huge - the new model shows that children born in 2019 will experience a 72% lower risk of lifetime mortality if vaccinated against these diseases. It is true that such accurate calculations are very expensive and have a certain margin of error, but human life is at stake, so scientists do their best to be as accurate as possible.

Most of the limitations are due to the fact that scientific organizations do not have accurate and up-to-date data on morbidity and deaths due to specific diseases, because most of them occur in Web News with very limited health care. However, as many as 16 different research groups have prepared their calculations in the field of hepatitis B virus, influenza B, papillomavirus, measles, Japanese encephalitis, meningitis, rotavirus, diphtheria, yellow fever and rubella.

The conclusions are as follows - in the lifetime of people born between 2000 and 2030, vaccinations will prevent 120 million deaths, of which 96 million are vaccines against measles and hepatitis. The findings go hand in hand with previous estimates, which suggested that vaccination has already saved 20 million children in 73 of the world's poorest countries since 2000. `` By estimating how much mortality we would have without vaccines, our research shows how crucial it is to keep vaccination at a high level, '' the researchers explain, noting that it is also necessary to extend vaccination coverage, especially in newer diseases. Cervical cancer could be completely eradicated in developing countries by the end of the century, according to the researchers.
