What are the most common myths associated with vaccines?

EN Version

Vaccines are widely regarded as one of mankind’s greatest discoveries. The World Health Organization speaks of tens of millions of cases of persons protected from death or the effects of suppression of serious infectious diseases solely by the administration of vaccines. Despite this, there is a growing movement against vaccination worldwide.

Widely known myths include, for example, that vaccines cause autism, or that the world’s elites plan to ‘tag’ the human population through vaccines. However, these false information have had a significant impact in some cases, which may even lead to the withdrawal of some vaccines from circulation. Which myths are most common?
