Introduction: Despite the extraordinary progress made in the field of vaccination, a large number of children in the last decade, 24 million children, or nearly 20% of children born every year, do not receive a full plan for vaccination during their first year of life. The aim: The purpose of the article is to analyze the legal framework of vaccination in Ukraine, comparing the approach of the domestic legislator to the vaccination with foreign experience.


Materials and methods: Methods of research are selected based on the goal of the study. In order to establish the objectivity and validity of scientific statements and conclusions, during the conducted research a complex of general scientific and special scientific methods was used, in particular such as: the formal legal method; comparative legal method; the method of forecasting and modeling; historical-legal method.


Review: In countries with epidemics, a state of emergency can be established and quarantine measures and vaccination to exercise the right to collective health, which may limit the right to individual health by limiting the right to consent to vaccination.


Conclusions: It is concluded that in world practice there is no single approach to the recognition of the right to vaccination, as a human right, or as a duty to preserve the epidemiological security of the state. It has been proved that infectious diseases evolve, change their form, the only effective means of preventing pandemics, which may question the existence of man as a biological species, is the vaccination system.
