The anti-vaccine movements will fail

Unless there is an alternative to vaccines, a technology breakthrough that is not on the horizon, the anti-vaccine movements in various countries are doomed to fail.

The diseases are coming back and with their increase, communities worldwide will not risk their lives or the lives of their children. Loss of herd immunity will also threaten the vaccinated population with disease.

People who refuse to vaccinate their children risk being socially isolated. Their children will not be able to attend mainstream schools or colleges. Eventually, the few who hold out may even be restricted to quarantined areas.

Theirs is a battle that they are destined to lose. But at what cost? When?
