A VETERAN NURSE DISCUSSES INFECTIOUS DISEASES WITH AMERICANS
Robert G Hess RN, a veteran nurse, reminded the public on his Instagram page how vaccinations and antibiotics altered the world.
We’ve all heard about the recent outbreaks of measles in the United States. However, you may not have been aware of how much the anti-vaccination movement has grown in the last decade. Unvaccinated school-age children have tripled in number since 2001, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Due to the unvaccinated population of youngsters in these areas, it is no wonder that measles outbreaks have occurred in several states. What impact does this have on our lives? On the other hand, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Texas has approximately 60,000 unvaccinated children in public schools, over 300,000 home-schooled children with no immunization records, and 100,000 school-age children who have received no vaccinations–and these numbers are rising.
