Looks like people aren't failing for the Waefield-scare any more and a once unheard of anyone ever getting the measles has proved to bite Wakefield in the butt, just like it did in MN.

We have a name for stories like this. We call em bee ess. Getting 8 to 10 year olds vaccinated isn't the same as babies who are vulnerable. And an outbreak in 2007 is being blamed on a 1998 medical intervention Wakefield did? We have a sayin for that too, its Buh Wah Ha Ha what a hoot.

Those who are babies are already vaccinated. The 10 to 14 year old reflect the Wakefield-scare, and are the ones spreading measles to others who are not vaccinated. The world knows Wakefield is a direct result of that age group not being vaccinated. We call those who deny that fact cult members of Wakefield and Buh Wah Ha Ha what a hoot to follow an unemployed loser.

It started in some town in Wales out of nowhere. I suspect it wasn't spontaneous. It wouldn't be the first time a Government, Brit or any, had orchestrated an experiment. Britain did it back, in the 60s I believe, with some 'minor' virus in a small town to find out how germ warfare would spread, or something like that excuse. Around 30 years later it was admitted, in the attitude of 'isn't that quirky' rather than 'didn't that infringe on human rights' This time they've been miffed for years about the lack of uptake of the MMR. Now, oddly enough, guess what they have people flocking to clinics and what do they get offered for a Measles outbreak? MMR, not just a measles vac but the MMR. Coincidence, I think not.

Actually, germ warfare is nothing to sneeze at however when it comes to a virus, no need to an experiment to know how it'll affect people. We already know how viruses are transmitted and present day travel is far higher than it was back in the 1960's, 70's and 80's. That's how an outbreak happened here. Unvaxxed family traveled to Kenya and became infected. Came back to the USA, exposed everyone on the plane and then everyone in they're home town, either nor vaccinated or yet too young for vaccination.

For the MMR, it's a no brainer. For one, it's cheaper. Two, those not vaccinated then could get rubella as well which affects unborn children. Rubella causes miscarriages, congenital rubella syndrome, deafness, blindness and mental retardation. And no one wants the mumps, as a child or adult.
