Medieval diseases are spreading across California’s homeless population:

Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus—a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals—in downtown streets. Officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building.

Prevention of these diseases is largely related to sanitation, rather than vaccines (there is a vaccine called BCG that prevents tuberculosis, but it’s not typically used in the US), so it’s not directly related to anti-vax concerns, but it is alarming none-the-less.
