People and Vaccines – level 2

08-07-2019 07:00

British scientists reached out to many people across the world to learn their opinions on vaccines. Most people said that vaccines are safe and effective. However, poorer countries are more certain about vaccines than richer countries.

The researchers say that people do not trust vaccines in places where vaccine-preventable diseases are coming back. That is not because the vaccines are bad, but because fewer people are giving vaccines to their children.

The WHO said that this problem is one of the top 10 problems in global health this year. The scientists want to continue to study this issue.

Difficult words: vaccine (medicine that helps your body fight a disease before the disease makes you sick), preventable (something which can be prevented – stopped before it happens), issue (a problem).
