But would it stay that way if we stopped supporting vaccinations?

Religious exemptions are permitted in Note: Effective July 1, 2016 California public and private schools will not accept any exemptions 48 states (excluding Mississippi and West Virginia) Philosophical exemptions are permitted in 19 states CON: PRO: Over the past 20 years 30.000 cases of adverse vaccinations saved an estimated reactions to vaccinations are reported annually (600,000 over 20 years) 732,000 u.s. children from death and 322 million from illness PROS VS. CONS o Yet only 10-15% of those classified as "serious" (result in permanent disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illness, or death) o That's 10x the amount of life saving cases compared to cases with adverse effects O Totaling 60,000 to 90,000 serious adverse reactions over 20 years Vaccinations have proven to be the safest, most successful, and most cost-effective way to safeguard our population from disease.
