Spin off of measals outbreak

Okay both my children have had the very shot on the MMR. They haven't received the 2nd because they are still to young for the 2nd one. My question is will my kids be a little protected from it or they just as vulnerable as those who aren't vaccinated? There is a measles outbreak where I live and its freaking me out.

  • I call BS on ObbyDobbie. If that is true statement please provide links that most people are infected once they get the vax.

  • OP, don't worry - your kids should be fine. Some posters have provided good links.

    Um... to anon, we give everyone the rubella vaccine to everyone BECAUSE it seriously affects pregnant women and their babies. Wouldn't you care if your sick unvaccinated boy spread a horribly harmful disease to a pregnant woman and it maimed her baby? It's not just about the individual child, it about him AND everyone he comes into contact with. Not all adults had all their shots or even had access to all the vaccines that our kids have today.

  • anonymous, that doesnt support Obbie statement. I think anonymous wants a credited website and more facts. I read it and it says 17 students but 17 out of what? 20? 100? 1000?
