About Unprotected People Reports

Unprotected People reports are an online collection of more than 100 personal accounts and case reports about vaccine-preventable diseases.
This web section offers visitors an opportunity to read articles about the diseases that are prevented by vaccines. Because immunization has been so successful, vaccine-preventable diseases such as diphtheria and polio are fading from our consciousness.
These reports remind us why vaccines are essential to protecting and preserving our public health. They serve as a counterbalance to anti-vaccine news stories.
