Oh look, the outbreaks continue into another year thanks to Wakefield and anti vaxxers, just to show everyone how wrong Wakefield was and why his fate is what it ended up being: a nobody.

2 new cases and 30 nation wide, oh so scary. Every country has measles especially those with high herd immunity because many mmr's don't evrn work. I has nothing to do with anti-vaccine or Wakefield. 30 cases nation wide shows that, its a small number and if treated will cause no death or outbreaks. This trash story exaggerates the issue.

Usual fear mongering tactics to get children unsafe untested autism causing vaccines. Unfounded my azz... they never answered Wakefield claim, they just pushed him away and vilified him to make him to look like something he is not. Down with your garbage vaccines. You will never ever get people trust.

Prove the MMR vaccine doesn't work. Typical tactic to get people not to vaccinate. And of course anti vaxxers over look the cost of treatment and who pays for it. Consider contracting the flu and measles at the same time, or having asthma and measles. Isn't it odd how anti vaxxers can predict deaths????

Poor poor Wakefield. The only man in all the world who made such claims, thanks to him, he is the result of why people chose not to vaccinate. Now he's showing us a great example of what happens when people don't! Which of course leads to what?? People DO vaccinate.
cough cough hack OMG

Many who are vaccinated get the measles. The USA government has sued one MMR maker twice for selling them vaccines that were faulty/ fraudulent. Try reading sometime.

Did you ever consider the fact that measle and flu spread from the same manufacturers that make the vaccines. They are the one working with live viruses.
Antivaxxers...what is that label you are selling. no one taking sides here, but only dummy

Again, it is false the USA Government has sued ANY MMR manufacturer. It is true there is attempts to sue, but it's not filed by the Government. That would sort of go against the reason why there's vaccine court??? Hello! Debunked!

Maybe if it were an oral vaccine and depending on the type of virus, then it may had been possible to spead the measles however, it's not an oral vaccine and the amount of virus in a vaccine is not anything compared to contracting it from an infected person.

Those who make false claims are anti vaxxers and too bad you're both easily debunked, mainly with common sense but the facts are easily obtained for those who lack it.

What a moron. Vaccine court ISN'T a court government would use to sue a company that sold faulty / fraudulent vaccines to them. Vaccine court is for the THOUSANDS injured by these so called safe, health giving products.

The only moron is you, making a claim that isn't true and clearly you have no clue of the history of vaccine court. Anyone can easily see just who it is who is attempting to sue, and it aint the USA Government! The first filed case was by 2 individuals Stephen A Krahling and Joan A. Wlochowski,(both relators) and the 2nd filing was by corp from Alabama. All looking for a payday, as can be seen in the public filed claim. Anyone can obtained this from Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill of AoA which I'm sure is where you got it from, only you obviously cant read.
Thanks for the laugh and another great debunking!

Obviously you're on something.
The link: the very first word shows it all: Biased, misinfo and clear use of fear mongering via religious fear mongering. This is where anti vaxxers get their info??!! But why stop there at the first word?? What's even more funny, the site cant even correctly spell the MMR vaccine they claimed Canada stopped using! And if anyone had a clue, the Urabe mumps strain is what Canada stopped using and so did the UK due to side effects but not including causing bowel disease or autism, and odd, no one uses a vaccine with that strain and it has nothing to do with the measles as Wakefield claimed! It totally goes against Wakefield's claim!
