Vaccinophobia: The Fear of Vaccinations

Vaccinophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of vaccinations.  This one has become a very big issue.  Many parents are against their children getting vaccinated. Fear and ethics play a very large role in how they feel about them.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
