Why are diseases from the past occurring in current times? Because people aren’t getting vaccinated anymore. People are coming to our country illegally and can’t get vaccinated or will be found out. It’s against some people’s culture to use medical procedure. And it’s now being discovered that vaccines in childhood are wearing away.
Why don’t parents want their children to be immunized? Because they want their children’s body to build up its own immunity against diseases. Some parents forget to immunise their children Some of the parents come from different cultures and it’s against their culture to do some medical procedures.
