Needless Measles Outbreaks

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/anti-vaccine-activists-spark-a-states-worst-measles-outbreak-in-decades/2017/05/04/a1fac952-2f39-11e7-9dec-764dc781686f_story.html?utm_term=.d4cf3818cd77&wpisrc=nl_most-draw6&wpmm=1

Did you know that measles was almost eradicated in the United States at the turn of the 21st Century? But thanks to misinformation and fear-mongering, measles outbreaks are on the rise. Don't fool around with your children's health. Vaccines work and it's been proven repeatedly that they do not cause autism.

If you are worried about vaccines, talk to your doctor (not to someone at your health foods store) about your concerns. Ask him or her if they vaccinate their own children. Read the article linked above and see what parents learned after their children had the measles. Check out the Center for Disease Control's excellent website, especially this page for parents who are concerned about vaccines: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/vaccine-decision/index.html
