Study: Millions of children's lives saved by vaccinations against 10 diseases
from Gibraltar Chronicle
From 2000 to 2030 vaccination against 10 major diseases, including measles, HPV and hepatitis B, will have prevented 69 million deaths in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs), according to new research. The greatest impact of vaccination was estimated to occur in children under 5 years. Researchers suggest mortality from the 10 diseases in this age group would be 45% higher than currently observed in the absence of vaccination. Published in The Lancet, the study estimates vaccinations have prevented 37 million deaths from 2000 to 2019.
