How did they manage to sneak the little disease vector into Europe without his shots?

If an infant outbreak can be traced to that kid, the parents should be arrested. And sterilized.

Can we sterilize them even if there isn't an outbreak?

It's good they are tracking this all down, when you are dealing with measles it's important to connect the dots.

I wish I could say I hope the child gets really sick and dies so the smug, anti-vax parents can be taught a lesson, but I can't wish that on anyone, even if they are arrogant, uninformed ass wipes.

Why wasn't that goddamn kid vaccinated?  Furthermore, if your little precious bundle of joy has a communicable disease, you know, like the farking measles, why wouldn't you keep the kid at home?  How brain dead do you have to be to think exposing your highly infectious offspring to god knows how many people, both adults and children alike, is a smart thing to do?

Those parents ought to be smacked in the face with a frozen trout.

It's not the kid's fault he's not vaccinated. I'd wish the measles death on the parents instead.

Uh.


An outbreak of measles occurred in a high school with a documented vaccination level of 98 per cent. Nineteen (70 per cent) of the cases were students who had histories of measles vaccination at 12 months of age or older and are therefore considered vaccine failures. Persons who were unimmunized or immunized at less than 12 months of age had substantially higher attack rates compared to those immunized on or after 12 months of age. Vaccine failures among apparently adequately vaccinated individuals were sources of infection for at least 48 per cent of the cases in the outbreak. There was no evidence to suggest that waning immunity was a contributing factor among the vaccine failures. Close contact with cases of measles in the high school, source or provider of vaccine, sharing common activities or classes with cases, and verification of the vaccination history were not significant risk factors in the outbreak. The outbreak subsided spontaneously after four generations of illness in the school and demonstrates that when measles is introduced in a highly vaccinated population, vaccine failures may play some role in transmission but that such transmission is not usually sustained.

It's totally cool to willfully endanger anyone with HIV or who is otherwise immunocompromised. Wait, no, that's not right.

IIRC, the first vaccine is at 12 months or so. That would mean anyone younger would be susceptible.

Didn't DRTFA but I came to say I caught measles from the vaccination. The booster I had to have before I could be released with our newborn. I couldn't believe I needed a booster as I had traveled extensively and had every immunization under the sun, more than once. Oddly the doctors assured me our baby was immune, but my mother-in-law caught them from me and my pregnant sister-in-law could not visit until we were well. None of which was necessarily a bad thing.

I wonder if the failed vaccinations were the MMR shot, or some other vaccination. Or all they all MMR now?

They said infant. The poor kids who never got immunized yet.

A while back a young girl died because she had yet to receive the whooping cough vaccine because she was too young. It's called social immunity. It works.

Because once upon a time the US was a civilized country and vaccinations were part of public health policy.

Now, not so much.

I don't blame McCarthy. You can always find someone saying something stupid. The blame lies entirely on the American people, who have made it a national trait to assert that ignorance and horse shiat is equally valid or even more valid than facts and science.

shtychkn: Isn't it only a threat to others who were not vaccinated?


Depends, there are people out there who have been vaccinated in the past who may no longer have immunity.  For example, I have Lymphoma (blood cancer), at some point, it might be necessary to have a bone marrow transplant.  Essentially that means erradicating my immune system, creating a new one.  This means resetting every single immunity I ever had back to zero and you can't get re vaccinated for at least a year afterward.  Someones little monster could be the death of someone like me.

I had measles as a young infant, way too young to even remember it because I was too young for the vaccination. I had the standard toddler vaccination, no booster later and at 35 still test as having immunity.

shtychkn: Isn't it only a threat to others who were not vaccinated?


Not every vaccinated person gets the immunity. Thankfully vaccinating everyone greatly reduces the risk that anyone at all will catch it.
