Brooklyn is having a Measles Outbreak right now ... 4.9.2019

It is happening. Measles has spread in Brooklyn, Williamsburg and Borough Park in New York.

The mayor has issued a state of emergency as the number of exposures has reached a record 300 persons. The Jewish Orthodox community in that area. People are instructed to get a shot to prevent a potentially deadly case of Measles which can be spread by air. Simply coughing can spread this disease.

Just two years ago, in 2017, there were only a few cases, but in just 2 years time, it has reached a high level of exposures that makes it a fact that those in the areas where this outbreak is taking place right at the moment, are required by authority to get a vaccination. Those who do not get the shots will be fines up to 1000 dollars. This is a real and present danger to the people living in this particular area. Below is a link for you to look at of Live YouTube on this topic.

Very few kids got the measles vaccine when I was young. My own children got the measles for real. I am not sure we need a vaccine for every childhood illness. Having said that, I know that measles can be very serious and even fatal for a few.

Many people are convinced injections such as flu shots are best avoided. There seems to be some kind of paranoia that doctors are out for money.

Well, yes, and for that reason the Mayor was live and talking about the seriousness of this situation. Since most of those in that community avoid the shots to prevent measles it has reached a high number of those immediately affected by the outbreak in a specific area of that city.

Well, I got measles as a kid and hope I never get it again. I hope the people don't die from it.

I don't think it's the doctors they are worried about but more about Big Pharma, persuading everyone that they need a "pill for every ill", which makes them more profit.

This is what's happening these days thanks to un-educated anti-vaxxers, diseases that were almost eradicated are coming back and people are getting really sick because of them. people with low immune systems and/or allergies that mean they cannot have vaccines rely on herd immunity to protect them from these diseases which they are more vulnerable to in the first place. these anti-vaxxers have killed the herd immunity making people who were already vulnerable even more so, of course these vulnerable people are also the people most likely to get really sick or even die from complications of these diseases and there is nothing they can do to prevent them. Honestly, these people need to take responsibility for the outbreaks they are causing - all the 'research' the anti-vax community refer to has been debunked more times than I can count but the damage it has caused to this generation is very very real.

it all stems from research done in the 90's that has since been debunked several times. Basically someone made a study that proved the MMR (mumps, measles and rubella) vaccine caused autism, the researcher (if you even want to call him that) looked only at people who had both a diagnosis of autism and had received the MMR vaccine and only looked at, I think it was 14 cases total. The research was beyond flawed and should never have been published in the first place and there was a lot of investigation into that as well. There are literally millions of people, myself included, who have had the MMR vaccine and do not have autism but that doesn't seem to matter to these people

Because of my job, I have had almost every vaccine available in the UK, even ones people wouldn't normally get, and I am grateful for them believe me.

You'd be surprised. I know people, for example, who drink colloidal silver because they think it's special and doctors don't want you to know about it. Check YouTube for verification!
