As we all know, though, this season isn't only about receiving gifts. It's also about giving them. During these weeks of the holiday season, we will be highlighting worthy, science- and health-related causes that you can support with the gift-giver in you.
Today, it's giving the gift of health and life. For many people around the world, this season and all seasons bring something besides gifts. For many people worldwide, especially children, any season can bring diseases that vaccines can prevent and take lives that vaccines could have saved. 'Tis this season, though, that can inspire you to help them.
Still looking for a Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, holiday-yet-to-be-invented gift for a loved (or tolerated) one? Skip the tsotchkes. Go with measles vaccines. Yes, measles vaccines. According to the Red Cross, measles kills an estimated 450 people each day worldwide and most of those are children.
