アンチヴァクサーとは何か

アンチヴァクサー(Anti-vaxxer)とは、せっかく根絶しつつある感染症を復活させようとする人のこと。
アメリカではアンチヴァクサーの団体すら設立されています。
日本でもアンチヴァクサーがSNSで活動してます。

また一部のアンチヴァクサーは、感染症で子を亡くした親を嘘つき呼ばわりで攻撃しています。
予防接種のせいで死んだとも。

こういう組織や人物って「反社」認定できないんですかね……。
ネット接続自体、禁止して欲しい。
反社認定で銀行口座が作れなくなり、クレジットカードも作れなくなります。
プロバイダーはクレジットカード払いが基本なので、必然的にネット接続が不可となるんで……。

WHOはアンチヴァクサーを世界の脅威と認定している程です。

Vaccine hesitancy – the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines – threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease – it currently prevents 2-3 million deaths a year, and a further 1.5 million could be avoided if global coverage of vaccinations improved.

Measles, for example, has seen a 30% increase in cases globally. The reasons for this rise are complex, and not all of these cases are due to vaccine hesitancy. However, some countries that were close to eliminating the disease have seen a resurgence.

The reasons why people choose not to vaccinate are complex; a vaccines advisory group to WHO identified complacency, inconvenience in accessing vaccines, and lack of confidence are key reasons underlying hesitancy. Health workers, especially those in communities, remain the most trusted advisor and influencer of vaccination decisions, and they must be supported to provide trusted, credible information on vaccines.

In 2019, WHO will ramp up work to eliminate cervical cancer worldwide by increasing coverage of the HPV vaccine, among other interventions. 2019 may also be the year when transmission of wild poliovirus is stopped in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Last year, less than 30 cases were reported in both countries. WHO and partners are committed to supporting these countries to vaccinate every last child to eradicate this crippling disease for good.
