  • I hope all of those affect recover nicely with no ill effects. I also hope that there aren't any deaths. This is sad.

  • I second the "so that's where all the vaccination posts are coming from" comment... I was wondering the same thing myself. And yes, we're all vaccinated here.

  • Nope, and they won't. I would however be interested to know how many of those 50 cases were in persons who were vaccinated...

  • People who get vaccinated cans till get the diseases they're vaccinated against, nothing is 100%. The point of the vaccines is they lower he risk, and if you do manage to catch whatever it is you're vaccinated against the effects are much less. Your chances of death from measles exist all around, many factors play into the outcome. But if you're vaccinated, chances are you won't die, your body will receive a lesser form of the virus and a few days on the couch is all that will happen. If you're not vaccinated, you've got a 50/50 chance to live or die. So it doesn't really matter how many of the infected were vaccinated, the question to be asked is how many of the dead were vaccinated. And the answer would probably be very few-none. There's always that exception to the rule person who ruins perfection.

    I don't know, but I DO know that they know the outbreak in Utah was triggered by an unvaccinated child.
