معدلات تطعيم الأطفال تنخفض خلال الجائحة

By Ninian Carter

April 20, 2023 - التصور العام للقاحات للأطفال انخفض خلال جائحة كوفيد-19، وفقاً لتقرير جديد صادر عن منظمة اليونيسف.

People around the world lost confidence in the importance of routine childhood vaccinations against killer diseases like measles and polio because of post-Covid misinformation and dwindling trust in governments – the largest backslide in childhood immunisation in a generation.

According to new UNICEF data, 67 million children missed out on one or more potentially lifesaving vaccines during the pandemic.

Countries such as South Korea and Papua New Guinea have an especially low belief in the importance of child vaccinations, registering interest of only 42% and 44% respectively.

Although worrying, the report indicates that vaccine confidence could improve and the situation may not be a long-term trend.
