Why you should care about the measles outbreak--even if you're vaccinated

Fortune   An outbreak of the disease highlights the dangers of foregoing vaccines – and the reality that they sometime fail.

A measles outbreak spreading across the country has sickened 86 people in 14 states, raising fears of an epidemic. But what’s different this time is the high number of adults falling ill –including some who have been vaccinated.

“We’re seeing more adults than we have seen in a typical outbreak,” says Anne Schuchat, director of the Center for Disease Control’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

The outbreak originated in Disneyland in December, sickening 11 people last month and another 56 people in January. The others most likely contracted the disease while traveling internationally in areas like Indonesia, India and Dubai.

The median age of infected patients is over 20, and not all of those were part of the anti-vaccination movement, whose adherents deliberately forego vaccines out of fear that they will cause more harm than good. At least six people diagnosed with measles got their measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, and all but two of them got the standard two-shot sequence.

This isn’t about measles vaccine effectiveness, which is actually one of the most effective in the world. Two doses provide 97% protection against infection and has been proven safe, says Schuchat. This is about the effect an outbreak has on the wider population when a select group of people remain unvaccinated.

The vast majority of both adults and children infected were unvaccinated–whether for health-related issues, lack of awareness or as part of the anti-vaccination movement. Medical professionals say the ongoing measles outbreak is the inevitable consequence.

Measles is a wildly contagious disease and is still common globally, sickening nearly 20 million people annually. The virus spreads through the air when an infected person breathes, sneezes or coughs. It’s so contagious that if one infected person coughs in a crowded area, 90% of the non-immune people in the vicinity will catch it. [...]


  1. And yet we still have that prominent "gadol" and his wife campaigning against vaccination!

  2. NaturalNews) The surest sign of a medical dictatorship is an
    aggressively enforced blockade against intelligent questions.
    Intelligent questions, after all, can destroy a medical police state
    because they expose the fraud of it.

    Intelligent questions --
    which the vaccine industry characterizes as "dangerous" -- are the
    greatest threat to the vaccine delusions still being played out across
    the world today, which is precisely why such questions are not allowed
    to be asked. Those daring to ask such questions are now being threatened with mass arrest and imprisonment
    -- that's how vulnerable the fraudulent vaccine industry has now
    become. It can be brought down by mere words if only those words are
    allowed to be circulated.

    What sort of questions are we not
    allowed to ask? Here are 21 censored questions the obedient,
    pharma-controlled mainstream media will never dare ask:

    #1) If measles vaccines confer measles immunity, then why do
    already-vaccinated children have anything to fear from a measles

    Question #2) If vaccines work so well, then why did Merck virologists file a False Claims Act with the U.S. government, describing the astonishing scientific fraud of how Merck faked its vaccine results to trick the FDA?

    Question #3) If vaccines don't have any links to autism, then why did a top CDC scientist openly confess to the CDC committing scientific fraud by selectively omitting clinical trial data after the fact in order to obscure an existing link between vaccines and autism?

    His exact statement, published on the website of his legal counsel:

    name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for
    Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret
    that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information
    in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted
    data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine
    before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were
    made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected,
    and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

    #4) If mercury is a neurotoxic chemical (which it is), then why is it
    still being injected into children and pregnant women via vaccines? Why
    does the vaccine industry refuse to remove all the mercury from vaccines
    in the interests of protecting children from mercury?

    The U.S. government tells us that lead in water is BAD, but mercury in vaccines is GOOD!
