Armenian Health Ministry ready to take no tough measures to suppress  anti-vaccination appeals

ArmInfo. The Ministry of Health of Armenia is ready to take drastic measures if the current trend towards a decrease in vaccination coverage in the country continues.  This was announced by Minister Arsen Torosyan on May 13 at a meeting  with journalists.

In particular, following the example of many developed countries, the  Ministry of Health will take more stringent measures in order to  silence the opponents of vaccination, up to the establishment of  criminal liability. "For example, Russia is discussing the  introduction of criminal responsibility for calls to refuse  vaccination. And if our coverage of vaccinees goes down, which will  steadily lead to epidemics, we will also take these steps. This is  done to preserve the health of the population of the country and our  children These are vaccines that save lives, "he said. So, according  to the minister, it is already worrying that the measles vaccination  rate has dropped below 90%. In the meantime, in all areas coverage  should not be below 95%. <The world is moving towards the elimination  of disease, and we must continue our steps in this direction. For  example, due to vaccination, poliomyelitis is on the verge of  annihilation, and if the opposite trend continues, then again we will  have many dead and children with disabilities, "the head of the  Armenian Ministry of Health concluded.
