    It's like getting the flu. You just stay in bed, drink lots of water, deal with the fever and wait about six weeks. The only way you could die from Measles is the same as any other virus. If you have a weak immune system or your frail and old (chances are you 've already had it) or you don't stay in bed and get over it. BTW> The biggest risk if you haven't Measles as a kid is when you are in your 50's you contract it in the form of Shingles and they are excruciatingly painful. Most men get these lesions on their forehead and temple and women often get them on their back. You are better off getting them when you're young, that's a fact. Measles has an incubation period of about six weeks so you never really know who you got them from. However, once the population gets over it, everyone is then immune for ever.

    You can't convince me, this is all FAKE NEWS. Vaccines cause autism, HIV, and are made from poison. They cause death as well. If you were to do the real science, you would find that there are facts to back this up, and they are a COVER-UP by the GOVERNMENT. The government puts harmful chemicals in our vaccines, leading our children to be mind-controlled by the government.

    measles had a 0.0001% mortality rate in the US the year before the vaccine was introduced - that's based on the CDC's own figures

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla Day ago

      That is reflective of the US healthcare system and not the mortality capacity of the disease. It is rather comical really how anti-vaxxers can not even understand that very-very simple precept in favor of their farcical and ultimately facile attempt at correlation. So we now consider the actual facts:
      1 - in the time before we saw the MMR vaccine the number of cases of measles each and every year in the US was measured in the hundreds of thousands of cases.
      2 - of those cases tens of thousands would end up being hospitalized.
      3 - of those in the hospital thousands would ultimately develop encephalitis with all of the potential neurocognitive problems that inflammation causes.
      4 - ultimately despite access to modern healthcare hundreds would still succumb to measles = *EACH AND EVERY YEAR.*
      So the real measure of measles is not simply the number who ultimately died = it is the *TOTALITY* of what the disease wrought upon the broader society. Those hundreds of thousands of cases would still need to be treated. Those tens of thousands hospitalized would result in a huge burden to their families as well as rack up considerable medical expenses.
      Some of those as noted would go on to suffer from lifelong health problems such as blindness or deafness let alone other neurocognitive impairments which could result in their being disabled for life and subject to being basically a ward of the State being unable to work or lead a normal life. Finally all of the grief and hardship associated with those who ended up dying. *THAT* is the real cost of measles in the time before the MMR.
      Moral of the story: poor anti-vaxxers..........they really can't see the forest for the trees here. LMAO!!! They try so hard to live in their internet-driven fantasy world as the rest of humanity has to live out here in the real one. _C'est La Vie_

    Measles is a very moderate disease has some how progressed where immunised people contract a more severe form endangering those of us who have natural antibodies . So thus proving vaccination is a hidden danger to quite a few who are now at risk of the more severe bout of measles that has occured since the MMR vaccine was foolishly administered to line the pockets of a few.

    This is a good video and very persuasive. Only question I have is: Can't we use dead viruses instead of live? I'm concerned that injecting a live virus is somewhat equivalent to being exposed to the actual disease.

    What if you vaccinate against measles, but measles is already there in your body?

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 13 days ago

      Posting twice is not particularly useful.........just saying. If however you have already been exposed to measles = what point then in receiving the vaccine??? One does not normally vaccinate someone against a thing for which they are already infected with. One instead vaccinates people to peremptorily prevent their becoming sick in the future by the illness.
      Moral of the story: if you already had measles and developed immunity against it - meaning you survived it as measles can kill people you know = you would therefore have antibodies in you. Thus if you later received the MMR vaccine = nothing would happen as your antibodies would destroy the weakened measles virus in the vaccine before it made you sick.
      Meanwhile the reverse is also true. If you were vaccinated and developed immunity - meaning you had antibodies in you = then exposure to "natural" measles would again not make you sick because the antibodies you developed from the MMR would prevent it. The only caveat is that a small percentage of people vaccinated do not always develop adequate immunity from being vaccinated owing to some issue within them. As such they could potentially still catch measles later on if exposed. That however as noted rarely happens. Have a nice day.

      Actually measles killed more people in one year, than vaccines have in several, it almost like they have minor side effects in the ling run
      (Though the side affects are serious in some cases, most people get an uncomfortable rash and thats only 400,000 in 10,000,000, and serious side effects were way less common, so the overall percentage of serious cases is almost 0.)

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 25 days ago +2

      Actually it makes a lot of sense Subho = when you realize the facile approach to logic that many employ = vaccine opponents included. People who already lack a fundamental understanding of the science behind vaccination will as a result be receptive to pseudo-scientific assertions about the same - not to mention the ubiquitous conspiracy theories and hyperbole which always seems to accompany anti-vaccine claims.
      Accordingly we see as a result people who erroneously believe that they understand vaccination science - when they quite obviously do not = and that lack of understanding then condemns them to endless poorly formed conclusions predicated upon that underlying ignorance. They are emblematic of Dunning-Kruger Effect which means they do not understand why they are wrong = because they do not understand the science.
      So anti-vaxxers often exist within echo chambers they create for themselves on social media. Then it becomes a simple matter of repetitive exposure to the pseudo-scientific gobbledygook they all pass around to each other as well as the fear and conspiracy theories. Repetitive exposure over a period of time to dubious assertions = is actually called "brainwashing".
      Moral of the story: vaccine opponents are engaging in self-brainwashing via social media = and all because they do not understand the science of vaccination despite their supposed "self-researching" they erroneously believe they are engaged in. Fear is a powerful motivator being more than capable of overriding logic in some people. Have a nice day.

      *EVERYONE* sees their immune capacity diminish over time as a consequence of aging and the breakdown of their bodily processes. Accordingly so-called "lifetime immunity" is merely a metaphor for immunity spanning into adulthood.
      The MMR confers adequate immunity for most people = proven medical fact. Meanwhile for those who failed to react immunologically as expected + those who might have some preexisting medical condition which results in their being at a greater risk + those who as noted are getting older and whose immunity might be waning = herd immunity still protects them as it acts to reduce the likelihood of these people being exposed.
      Moral of the story: so advising everyone to have their titers checked = waste of resources as well as a lack of understanding of above. Exposure is predicated upon outbreaks. As such if there are no large outbreaks where you live = you have little to fear. If however we continue to see a rise in measles incidence as a consequence of unvaccinated allowing new outbreaks to form = then older people will likely be advised to simply get a booster shot of MMR rather than wasting time and money checking everyone's titers. Have a nice day.

    The Clintons masterminded the mandatory free Vaccines for Children program back in 1994 - paid for by taxpayers - while pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars from vaccine manufacturers over the years. While the MMR vaccine is dished out like candy over the “measles outbreak,” and the exclusive manufacturer Merck has increased revenues by 27% to $496 million, the media is pimping out doctored baby photos to create panic and claiming the “outbreak” is the fault of anti-vaxxers, as the CDC inflates numbers (again)

      @Gary Faulkner Measles was a mild disease and no problem *for you*. However, it also makes one in ten people so sick that they need to be hospitalised, many of whom will be left with life-long problems like poor eyesight, and it kills on in every thousand. Doesn;t sound much? Well consider that the US used to have ten million cases of measles a year on average, and many more it a bad year. If you can;t do the math to figure out how many preventable hospitalisations and deaths that represents, get back to us. Oh, and "lifelong" immunity is a misnomer. It generally means "immunity into adulthood". Everyone's immunity drops with age. The immunity conferred by actually catching measles in greater, because it's a much greater threat and thus the immune system response is far greater. The vaccines are calculated to be just enough of a threat for the immune system to respond and produce a defence, which in turn is enough to protect you from actual infection, but without making you sick (or only very mildly sick at worst). That's why a lot of vaccines have booster shots. But over 96% of people receiving MMR as a child will have sufficient immunity to protect them well into adulthood. Since vaccination prevents epidemics you are unlikely to encounter measles before your immunity drops off. If, however, there was such an epidemic due to anti-vaxx idiots, you'd likely be advised to get a bosster to increase your protection. Do you know why people deliberately took their kids to "pox parties"? Not because measles is safe. But because it's slightly safer to catch it as a child. It is, of course, vastly inferior to vaccination, which gives you the same protection..but without the risk.

      @Gary Faulkner complete nonsense again, gazza. vaccine-derived immunity to measles is lifelong in >96% of vaccinated people. your suggested alternative that our children all get a disease that hospitalises 1/10 and kills 1/1000 is plainly moronic. bravo.
      tell us again - what is your financial involvement with the 'alternative' health industry? how do you make money by undermining vaccines? just interested to know why someone would endanger children by spreading misinformation:)

  • SageSeeker

    Yeah... is it just me, or is the measles outbreak.. getting ridiculous? Also, this sounds like an add for a measles vaccine. I've also looked into it, and the people who get the vaccines are more likely to get sick, as opposed to those who didn't. Sweden just banned mandatory vaccines as well.
    Now I'm not an anti-vaxxer, vaccines are helping society. However, keep in mind people make money off this by selling it, so I don't exactly trust vaccines that come from sources that get rich off people for selling vaccines. Do your research before you get the vaccines people. Check your source, check the vaccine, is it new? Never trust the new shit.

      Supposedly "doing research" when a person lacks the background to comprehend what amounts to scientific matters = is ultimately an exercise in embarrassment for that person who ends up making all kinds of dubious conclusions based upon that lack of understanding. That by the way is emblematic of Dunning-Kruger Effect.
      So cycling through social media claims - which coincidentally is an utterly unreliable format for news acquisition as the platforms are overrun with trolls/bots sowing misinformation and conspiracy theory - *IS NOT* doing research. So follow the white rabbit Neo:
      1 - the current measles epidemic is directly a result of *UNVACCINATED* people who "imported" the virus from abroad via places where it is still endemic = to begin new chains of infection in their communities among other unvaccinated.
      2 - vaccinated children are more healthy long term than unvaccinated ones. That is why insurance companies offer vaccines either free or at a low cost to their clients because *ALL* of the data shows that vaccinated people are healthier long term. Insurance companies follow the money. If vaccination was not considered to be a good investment = they would not include it as part of their preventative health coverage.
      3 - the primary customer for vaccines = governments. Governments buy and then give away free of charge vaccines for administration = so no profit there. Also in developed countries where they have socialized medicine we again see governments buying vaccines and simply giving them away. Meanwhile the doctors work for the government and thus they have no incentive to prescribe vaccines as they are paid either way = so once again no profit.
      4 - so vaccines from a purely economic point represent a dead loss to those who purchase and administer them. Meanwhile the vaccine makers are few in number. If vaccines were a "cash cow" = everyone would be making them. Instead only a handful of companies even bother to make vaccines because they are so highly regulated and come with high production costs and low reimbursement potential because governments who buy them set by law the price they are willing to pay.
      5 - last by not least. Sweden = near the Artic Circle. Accordingly few people are clamoring to live there while it is in Northern Europe surrounded by other countries which likewise do not see mass immigration compared to the US and elsewhere. So each country determines it's vaccine schedule = based upon relative risk of exposure. Countries where millions transit each year like the US + where immigration takes place from Third World nations were infectious diseases are endemic = are at a much greater risk for the introduction of infectious diseases as our measles example shows. Accordingly they require more vaccines since they can pay for them. Poorer nations or nations with a much lower risk of outside introduction = have less vaccines. So if infectious disease outbreaks were commonplace in Sweden = I'd wager they would require vaccination against it.
      Moral of the story: so you must look at the totality of what is happening and why. You can not simply latch onto something you got off of the internet or social media and run with it simply because it might "make sense" to you. That as noted is a recipe for poor conclusions. Have a nice day.

    If I’ve got the flu once, how come I’m not immune to it?

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 17 days ago +1

      To add to what Richard noted I would include that those many various upper respiratory viruses out there which are often lumped together under the designation "common cold" can sometimes trigger an URI which can mimic the Flu since they all attack the same respiratory cells of your body. This means a person who catches say a coronavirus or an adenovirus as an example and it triggers a severe enough URI = might confuse that viral infection with having Influenza - which they don't.
      That is one of the reasons why if it is bad enough providers might perform a rapid assay to determine if the person actually has the Flu or else one of the other URI causing viruses of which there are many. So the symptoms you develop are a result of the area of your body which is being attacked. Yet as noted = multiple viruses attack the same weak points of the body producing similar symptomology in some cases even though they are caused by completely unrelated pathogens.
      Moral of the story: so children and teens usually catch the most illnesses because their body's immune system has not yet encountered and adapted to all that is out there. Then as young adults 20-40's you are in the "golden zone" whereby you have acquired enough commonly encountered illnesses that you may not get sick as often as you once did.
      From the mid-40's onward however your body systems are aging and the tables again begin to turn against you. You find you get sick and when you do it is worse that years previously. There is no panacea I'm afraid as it is just your body getting older. All you can do is try to stay reasonably healthy and avoid contact with obviously sick get vaccinated against things like the Flu or Pneumococcal pneumonia. Have a nice day.

    • Richard Gregory

      You *are* immune. To that particular flu. However, there are many variants of influenza virus, and they repaidly mutate as well. The virus evolved this as a means to evade the immune system's defenses. That is why you have a flu shot every year. The world health authorities do a statistical analysis to predict what types of flu are likely to be around in that year, and also update the vaccine to the new strains. However, the fl shot cannot protect you against strains it does not contain, and it is always possible a new type of flu will emerge. Sometimes these new strains can be extremely virulent and far more serious - the worst flu outbreak was that of the Spanish flu just after WW1. Though it is thought that the post-war conditions of large movements of troops comign home and people weakened and exhausted by four years of war and deprivation mad eit much worse than it might otherwise have been.

      This is why you catch colds through your life. There are many cold viruses, and they mutate. You wil, however, catch fewer colds, because you become immune to more and more of them. That's why kids catch so many, espescially when they first go to school. This is also why there's no cold vaccine.

    • Vary Olla
      Vary Olla 27 days ago +1

      Ah............perhaps because there are literally dozens of strains in circulation around the world. As such when one sees "Flu season" where they live = it varies from year to year as to what strains are in circulation. As people travel the world round they act to spread infectious diseases at times. That means that perhaps H1N1 breaks out in Asia one year = and as a result of international travel we see it spread to North America or Europe the following year.
      Some infectious pathogens fortunately do not change very much. Accordingly there may only be one or two variations of it out there and the vaccine covers them. An example is the MeV measles virus. There are multiple "genotypes" of the virus = but only one "serotype" which is the important part. As such the MMR vaccine works against all genotypes to confer immunity.
      Others however like Influenza are "highly mutable" = meaning they mutate frequently. The measles virus only infects humans. Influenza on the other hand can "jump" between species via "zoonosis". That is why you have "swine Flu" or "bird Flu" = which means those strains contain genes from birds or pigs as well as human DNA.
      Moral of the story: so it depends as noted upon how many strains are out there and how often then can mutate into something else. It also depends upon "immunogenicity" = or how severely your body reacts. The MeV measles virus literally reeks havoc on your body and immune system making it highly immunogenic. Accordingly people infected with measles typically develop lifelong immunity. Other things like the tetanus toxin the DTaP vaccine is not highly immunogenic. As such it only confers immunity for ~10 years or so in most people = requiring booster shots periodically. So there is no simple answer I'm afraid. It is dependent upon multiple variables. Have a nice day.

    Vaccines do not confer immunity, do not stop disease, do not stop death, never saved us, fail often (which is blamed on the unvaccinated), are not *properly* safety tested, cause chronic health problems, cause lifelong damage, cause death, and yet, are mandated by governments around the world at the bidding of the liability-free vaccine industry!

      3) Allergic to or can’t get vaccines
      Plus, if you were vaccinated , and didn’t have a side effect but not do it to your children, you’re sick, you’re cruel. Same thing with vegans, they are meat during childhood and claimed they didn’t.
