In the Internet era of information overload, how does the individual filter and process available knowledge? This paper highlights the relationship between the Worldwide online interest in the term ‘Anti Vaccine’ and the decrease in Measles immunization percentages; indicating the role the Internet plays in the spreading of false information. This finding supports previous research suggesting that conspiracist ideation is related to the rejection of scientific propositions, which, in this case, could affect public health. Furthermore, significant correlations are observed between ‘Measles’ Google queries and reported cases in most EU countries. Therefore, monitoring the online behavioral variations is required for nowcasting the interest towards Measles, so that health officials can deal with reported cases in a timely manner and take the appropriate preventive measures.
