Why do people bring in the argument "I don't vaccinate because AVN or other experts tell me that vaccines are not 100% effective".
Scientists would agree with AVN or other experts who state vaccines are not 100% effective. Not one scientist has ever stated that they are 100% effective in preventing diseases. However, what AVN and other anti-vaxx experts do not explain to people is that:
Vaccines are effective in disease prevention in 90-95% of the people. The other 5-10% will get the illness, but symptoms will be much less severe then they would be without the vaccines.
The fatality rate would be 50% higher as well.
