It technically started within the timeframe you mentioned
@Jondar02 I looked into it, the original website says nothing about vaccine uptake. It was literally fabricated by someone and put there. Here's the website: http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20140505192926/https://www.hpa.org.uk/web/hpaweb&hpawebstandard/hpaweb_c/1195733835814
@Jondar02 Nvm, I would be dishonest to ignore this. Scroll down to page 15 and you will see the vaccine coverage. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/769970/UK_measles_and_rubella_elimination_strategy.pdf
It's a shame that the guy who did the chart didn't properly add this in his sources. You're right but I would argue that the vaccination coverage was still low (~50% in the 80's) and as you can see in pic related it was already almost gone in that time.
I retract my previous statements. 🤪 If you're gonna make a chart, you should properly include the source and not make the viewer chase it.
"Vaccine coverage remained low until the late 1980s and was
insufficient to interrupt measles transmission. Therefore, annual notifications only
fell to between 50,000 and 100,000 and measles remained a major cause of
morbidity and mortality"
So yes, it wasn't instantly
So vaccines work then
work in what sense?
stop people getting disease which does little harm, making them more susceptible to other illnesses?
wasting time and resources which are in demand
can you specify "other illnesses"
are you only aware of measles?
you think that is the only disease
can u just answer the question
I don't think you have an idea of what the other illnesses are, do you?
Do you think the only illness is measels? @!Link You are guilty of the same shit you are saying chad is.
I am completely aware that there are more illnesses
but do you think the only illness is measels?
if i though measles ws the only disease why would i say 15:51] chad: stop people getting disease which does little harm, making them more susceptible to other illnesses?
i was just wondering what other diseases you ment with "other illnesses"
as in which
you could try polite conversation
just a crazy idea
I'm just asking a question which i think got miss understood
it weakens your immune system
Does getting sick build immune system?
A child exposed to colds and viruses earlier in life will develop a stronger immune system and is less likely to become sick in his or her later years. ... So, if you get it earlier, you're going to be immune earlier.”
Yes but wouldn't a vaccine do that, except the child doesn't have to go through the risk of fighting off the disease?
Well, the full disease.
At it's strength.
Having the child get the disease can be dangerous.
And vaccines work the same way, by introducing a weakened form of the illness you develop the immune system without the need for the full illness. This way the immune system gets significantly less weakened in comparison to the real deal without (too much [I don't know the numbers on that]) comprising the outcome, aka immunity
