A lot of those who came down with measles were vaxed. And no we didn't, but I know a few who did.

I heard that half the people that got it were vaxed. I wonder if there's a booster shot.

Hmmm I thought the majority who came down with it in this instance were not immunized.

It's weird.

We had a measles outbreak here a few years ago and all of the kids that got it were vaxed. I thought the vaccine was supposed to prevent it?

I don't remember the number, you may be right that the majority were not, I just know not all of them were not vaxed. I believe I read many were only partially vaxed and a few were fully vaxed.

I also heard on the news that all but one of the infected people had not been vaxed (I live in So CA too). 

We actually went to Downtown Disney during that week, and last week my daughter got this weird, wet rash that started behind her ear and spread all over her body... I made the mistake of Googling it before taking her to the doc and all of the symptoms aligned with measles, so I was pretty worried (she has been vaxed).  Turned out it was just the strep she got at the beginning of winter break manifesting itself in a new way (yay?) but yeah, it had me worried there for a bit, lol.
