AbstractThis analysis includes a diverse comparison of the infrastructure, policies, resources, and influences regarding the vaccination of children in Mexico and the United States. In order to portray my findings in a representative manner, I have utilized publiclyaccessible information provided by credible institutions in both countries. To fully understand the policies and procedures in Mexico, I conducted a trip to a rural community in Jalisco to collect information from medical professionals themselves in the form of questionnaires. personal correspondence, and local medical documentation. In doing this, I have included some personal insight and misconceptions that I possessed prior to the trip and how this has enlightened my knowledge on Mexican healthcare infrastructure. To conclude, I mention other political and ethical influences that can impact a country’s proper usage of vaccination. The overall intention of the paper is to educate the reader on these policies and procedures in place, influences that affect this essential medical advancement, and how personal prejudices can sometimes hinder the truth.
