Vaccinate yourself then Lone. Check the pathophysiology of measles befor you share any bullshit lies. Anyone who already had measles, which most of the kids had in their childhood already ...gained immunity against measles for a lifetime.

Are you an ltalian citizen living in ltaly, close to ltaly or what? Have you seen by yourself what is going on in ltaly or what???

Severly immune impaired should get extra protection only. Onca again a ''superintelligent'' care 2 member shared the bullshit.

Are you listening, Jill Stein? You too, Erika C? Vaccinations exist for many very good reasons. Erika, would you like to watch your children - or grandchildren - suffer whooping cough, diphtheria or polio? Smallpox has been eradicated thanks to vaccination.

While I agree that vaccines are good, I do Not believe that Adults (not children) should be allowed to choose...not forced to get them. Congress has been considering a forced vaccine law because so many have opted out of getting the flu have I. Thanx Lone. And signed...

I don't know anyone over the age 60 that thinks it's a good idea not to vaccinate. I remember children dying or going blind. My family are in the medical fields and have vaccinated their children and the know of NO one within their circle of friends or workmates that have not vaccinated, yet all these non medical people think they know what's best because they read it online. Many things have been blamed for the increase in autism. What about the toxins in the increased air pollution, fertilizers, insecticides and weed killers? It seems that would be the more likely culprit.

Erika C ... the vaccination isn't for all measles, just the strain that is deadly for unborn babies or didn't you know that?? If a pregnant women gets the German Measles Rubella it's lethal for the unborn child. Although it's usually a 3 day virus Rubella often has complications which cause blindness if the eyes aren't covered or be placed in a darkened room before the damage is done, deafness, encephalitis among many other. There's an increased risk of complications leading to death. There are many types of measles. I was vaccinated against Rubella, but still had one of the lesser measles that are relatively harmless. Approximately 100,000 people die every year from measles with the majority being under 5 years old, not to mention the miscarriage & stillbirths in pregnant women from someone not vaccinating their child and that child infecting a pregnant woman. Did you not know this???
