Well at least now the number of autism cases will go down.

I just found out yesterday that you can't sue drugmakers for adverse effects from vaccines. The US government actually has a vaccine court that handles any claims.

Per the article, the population most affected by Hep A is gay men. Luckily, there isn't a very large population of gay men in California or Nevada.

Gay men, the poor, and immigrants.  California, Detroit, California.  It's funny how that's not really ever mentioned in these articles..

From CDC:
"In this survey, anti-HAV seroprevalence was highest among Mexican Americans not born in the U.S. regardless of age, and seroprevalence was higher among U.S.-born Mexican Americans compared with U.S-born non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black persons for all age groups. Asian Pacific Islanders were not included as a race/ethnic category in this survey."

"(ACIP) recommended administration of hepatitis A vaccine to persons at increased risk for the disease, including international travelers, men who have sex with men, non-injection and injection-drug users, and children living in communities with high rates of disease."

I have it on good authority (from a Facebook post) that vaccines are worse than the diseases they are supposed to prevent.

I wonder if it is more of a case of the manufacturers were watching for signs of outbreak on the news and set up a "shortage" for a case of the old supply and demand.

That was probably the funniest part of the movie and it was not going for much humor.
No, I've been here on Keystone Island.

It's almost as if people should get vaccinated **before** a major disease outbreak.

Bowen: It's almost as if people should get vaccinated **before** a major disease outbreak.


Most US Citizens are vaccinated at around 1 year old. This particular outbreak is related to Mexican immigrants as mentioned above.

The virus is found in the feces of people with the disease, and is most frequently transmitted by eating food or drinking water handled by someone who has not properly washed their hands.

Geez! You wouldn't believe the amount of people who just will not freakin wash their hands after going to the bathroom! I mean it's most common in these restaurants that hire minimum wage food servers, like the hamburger joints.

I had a roommate ages ago who just would not wash his hands after using the toilet, until I threatened to break his fingers. Then, for awhile, I had to check the soap in there to make sure it looked used. Eventually I just tossed him out. Too much fuss.

Plus, a lot of people in grocery stores (customers not employees) will not wash after using the can but they have no problem in handling fresh fruit and vegetables with their grody hands or pawing packaged meat. (How many of you wash your hands after taking off the wrapping on a nice steak? Those of you who don't risk getting the bacteria one of those 'unwashed hands people' who wiped their butts.) Don't always depend on the cooking process to kill any bacteria you then transfer to the meat.

We had Hepatitis outbreaks when I was in school, only we called it 'Yellow Jaundice' and I don't know it it was A or B. However, when a kid got it, parents usually had their kids go and visit the sick one to get exposed themselves and develop an immunity for adult life. I got exposed to it that way, but never caught it.

That didn't start becoming a thing until the 1990s. There are still a lot of adults out there who were never vaccinated.

Not really new. This system was set up after the swine flu scare in 1976. The producers of vaccines wanted to limit liability for side effects that may occur from major national immunization  programs. Thoughtful and responsible experts from government, academia, public health and  Pharma constructed a fair and workable recommendation to fix the. problem. And Congress put it in place.
It's unlikely that this kind of rational response to a complex problem could happen today. Compare this to the fiasco the erupted when one case of Ebola was diagnosed in the US a couple of years ago. And nothing would be different if it happens again next week

With all the anti-vaxers you would think they would be swimming in vaccine.

I... should check my records. Born in 85, so I'm not sure if I've had a/b. I work in a pharmacy so I see plenty of sick people.


I saw the headline and assumed it was a yellow fever outbreak somewhere. It's on backorder until mid next year. The Mormon missionaries are all in a tizzy.

I've had every shot that's required...this year's Flu vac., also, though not required.

Hand sanitizers are not effective against the virus, so frequent hand washing is critical to controlling any outbreak.

Can you really tell me with a straight face that Pharmaceutical companies that have been giving out opiates like Halloween candy are using science and not profit for their motives.  What they push as science is really just a new religion, they ask you believe things instead of proving them with the scientific method.  Look at how much money they spend on Advertising for FDA approved drugs whose listed side effects include death, cancer, and conditions worse then what they are prescribed to treat.  You are getting propaganda disguised as science by an actor in a lab coat, paid for by pill pushing drug dealers for an industry that makes money off of selling treatments to sick people and blocking natural cures indigenous people have used for generations.
