Vaccinations are important for the health and safey of all of us according to WalletHub,

Vaccinations are some of the most valuable contributions to modern medicine. They have drastically reduced the prevalence of certain diseases, including polio, tetanus, measles and chicken pox. One disease, smallpox, has even been eradicated completely, with no natural cases since 1977.

Vaccines have prevented the deaths of at least 10 million people worldwide according to the World Health Organization and 732,000 in the U.S. between 1994 and 2013 according to the CDC.
