Objective: To identify the causes of the vaccine refusal and thus the severities that the anti-vaccine movement reflected in the population.

Methods: Extended abstract of the literature review, researched papers documents in the Virtual Health Library (VHL) databases, the Journal Coordination Portal of Improvement of Higher-Education Personnel (CAPES), Scielo (Scientific Electronic Library Online), and Google Scholar applying exclusion criteria.

Results: In their study Hu et al, 2019, observed 24.9% of vaccine refusal, a higher percentage compared to a sample of 285, where 33.7% have doubt in relation to the efficacy of the vaccine, 34% distrust the pharmaceutical industry, 38.2% are concerned with the vaccine safety, and 37.2% do not consider the vaccine essential, strongly characterizing the anti-vaccine movement. Fonseca et al, 2018, study shows a smaller percentage of vaccine refusals, 0.14%, which is considered low. This result may possibly be related to educational level of the sampled population. 74% of the participants in his study had higher education degrees indicating a possible correlation between education levels and acceptance of vaccination.

Conclusion: Results of this study shows a need for further research on the repercussions of the anti-vaccine movement. It also demonstrate a need for additional outreach programs based on awareness and education of the population regarding vaccination.


Keywords: Movement against vaccine. Refusal of vaccine. Vaccine immunogenicity.
