Why Global Citizens Should Care
Routine immunization is vital for preventing so many deaths around the world. The anti-vax movement threatens progress towards achieving Global Goal 3 on good health and well-being. Join Global Citizen and take action now.

Measles outbreaks are occurring all over the world, from Madagascar to the Philippines to Europe to the United States — and social media is partially to blame.

The anti-vax movement has led to a decrease in immunization rates and has triggered outbreaks, and social media platforms have made it easier to spread misinformation online.

Luckily, there’s no shortage of pro-vaccine posts to remind us all that vaccines work — in amusing and informative ways, as exhibited by the top 10 posts below.
