Vaccines and Mortality Rates
Did you know one of the most important indicators of public health conditions of a country is the infant mortality rate (IMR). Many people assume since the United States has arguably the best health system in the world, they have the healthiest children.
What do the numbers tell us?
A study by Neil Z. Miller and Gary S. Goldman looking at the correlation between the number of vaccines children get versus the infant mortality rate. 
A different study performed by Miller and Goldman analyzed the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. They discovered the babies who received multiple vaccines during a single well-baby visit were the most likely to be hospitalized following their injections. 
The data below is a graphical representation of the number of vaccines given before 6 years of age, under 5 mortality rate, and infant mortality rate of the respective countries.
