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

AMAZING!!!!!

As the vaccination % drops, cases go up!

It's almost like it's a SCIENCE!!!!!

By the way, my 17 year old niece, without any prompting or instruction from me, said the problem with anarchism is that most people just aren't smart enough to live in anarchy. The anti-vaxxer movement might provide a shortcut.

Agreed. Except my parents made sure I was immunized when they gave out shots at public school in first grade so it's no skin off my back; maybe the idjits' dead sprogs can be attributed to "Darwin." And maybe dying of measles in a few days would spare the kids years of worse damage from their parents' stupidity later on. It is too bad there's not a germ we could target at anti-vaxxers themselves that'll spare their kids, but maybe Science can work on that.

I once read a novel about an engineered (flu?) virus that targeted only people with brown hair & brown eyes (IIRC). That's a stupid idea, it'd hit hardest at the hawt Latinas I drool over every time I go shopping, but it'd be great if a particular gene variation was common to anti-vaxxers or people who are genetically inclined to take such positions so we might develop a quick fatal infection just for them. Someday we might identify genes for bible-thumping, militant teetotaling, "Obama is a Marxist Kenyan" and such-like, so we can conjure counter-measures against that too. All it'd take is one good bundle of bugs.

Paris1127: McCarthy Flu strikes again...

/she's so pro-health, she's selling e-cigarettes now...


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.

meat0918: J. Frank Parnell: ecmoRandomNumbers: If an infant outbreak can be traced to that kid, the parents should be arrested. And sterilized.

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.


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.

BMFPitt: zabadu: 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.

How about hoping the kid gets better, but the parents get hit by a bus so the kid can be raised by non-idiots?


Okay, yeah...that's better.

SilentStrider: Get your kids vaccinated dumbfarks.


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.

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

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

Europe?

FT(very short)FA:  The child, who was not vaccinated, contracted the measles while traveling in Europe.

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.


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

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.
