Gallery: Anti-vaxx: Are these diseases making a comeback? (Espresso)

a person standing in front of a window: Vaccines have saved millions of lives by eradicating or slowing the propagation of numerous illnesses. Without scientists like Edward Jenner (1749-1823), the father of immunology, and Louis Pasteur (1822-1895), the father of vaccination, diseases such as smallpox and tetanus would still cause thousands of deaths each year. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that vaccines saved the lives of at least 10 million people between 2010 and 2015.While several illnesses have apparently disappeared from the face of the earth, some diseases have seen a comeback in recent years. Authorities lay most of the blame on the anti-vaccination movement.Which diseases have vaccines eradicated? Which ones are experiencing a resurgence? Read on to find out.

The updated list, which is subject to Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approval of vaccine supply, also lists the conditions that fall in priority group six for at-risk adults aged 18 to 65.

These include diabetes, chronic heart disease and morbid obesity.

1. Older adults in a care home and care home workers

2. All those 80 years of age and over and health and social care workers

3. All those 75 years of age and over

4. All those 70 years of age and over and the clinically extremely vulnerable individuals, excluding pregnant women and those under 18 years of age

5. All those 65 years of age and over

6. Adults aged 18 to 65 years in an at-risk group

7. All those aged 60 and over

8. All those 55 and over

9. All those aged 50 and over
