This article aims to develop an idea about the importance of information in health and the problems that may cause false news, also known as fake news in public health cases. The example taken for the development of the present work was the case of fake news about vaccination against measles, poliomyelitis and yellow fever, which impacted mass vaccination campaigns that aimed to protect the Brazilian population against diseases which had already been controlled in the past and which, due to a lack of vaccination, are at risk of resurgence, affecting the health of the present and future generations.
