I'd pick A

-simple
-uses "just as" to compare actions correctly

Others:
B/C/E - like/similar to - incorrect 'coz action is being compared not noun
D - don't like the use of "while". There is not contrast here.

Why not B?

I have seen so many questions in this form saying that "Just as.....so" is the correct idiom.

I will go with B here.

But in B, the sentence will be comparing vaccine to dietary change, which changes the meaning of the sentence
