Map of Vaccine-Preventable Outbreaks Over Time

Image by Council of Foreign Relations
The council of foreign relations have produced an interactive map the shows the concentration of vaccine-preventable outbreaks throughout the world over time. Such diseases include measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and whooping cough.

The take-home point of the map is that diseases that were once considered "eradicated" due to near-universal vaccinations have now made a tremendous comeback which is felt almost certainly due to the anti-vaccine movement.

Vaccinate!!!
