If you are the all-natural type that would rather have your body fend of diseases itself rather than taint it with medication, let the 'Vaccines Work' infographic show you the other side of the story.

By measuring the amount of money that vaccines save in terms of the costs that would be incurred by certain illnesses had the vaccine not been made available, the $63 billion benefit is clear. If the monetary value of costs averted does not appeal to you, perhaps you should consider the number of lives saved and cases in HIB, Pneumococcal, and Rotavirus prevented (both figures are in the millions!).

This infographic addresses the vaccine utility debate at an angle different from the conventional health pro and con attack.
