Default Measles - are you vaccinated?

Measles is surging. Last week the U.S. recorded 90 cases, making this year's outbreak the second largest in more than two decades.


https://www.npr.org/sections/health-...officials-warn


The majority of the cases are connected to outbreaks in New York, Cohn says.
"This is a very significant outbreak," she says. "These cases were imported from other countries, but because of low vaccination coverage in these communities, measles is spreading widely throughout these communities."


Last week, New York City declared a public health emergency in an ultra-Orthodox community in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. The city's Health Department is mandating that parents vaccinate their children, or they may face a $1,000 fine.
The CDC pointed to four other places with ongoing outbreaks in the U.S.: Clark County, Wash.; Oakland County, Mich.; two counties in New Jersey; and a handful of counties across California

The standard vaccination in the 50s and 60s was to have your kid play with another kid who had the measles.

If I remember, you can get it only once, never again.

I thought it was the polio vaccine. I still have that round dark spot on my upper right arm.
Seriously I'm almost 63 and I think I have been vaccinated for every disease known to man.

But I do know for a fact I had the measles and the mumps. I actually remember it because I was so sick.
Like Rob, I think my parents exposed my siblings to those two.
Bad part about chicken pox is how it can return in the form of shingles.
That looks very bad and I hear its very painful.

I have had the shingles and pneumonia vaccine not all that long ago.

Keep your needle away from me. I'd say more but this is the wrong spot.

Vaccines cause old age... get it? Because vaccinated people survive.

Im 59, I dont have that round scar but, I remember seeing kids from other countries in school that had it. My parents born in the 30s dont have that round scar either.
They stopped Small Pox vaccination in 1971 or 72 I think.

I got my shots in elementary school. Could have been first grade though third grade. Not sure.
I for sure have the scar. Its almost invisible now. But if you look, its still there.

I really have no idea why some refuse them. What the reasoning is.

Small pox was eradicated in the mid-70s.
