OOOOooooo... a percent of a percent of a percent of a percent of the population are contracting measles this year.  Better run out in panic and get a vaccine that is four times more likely to kill you.

People need to keep their sick children home. If they have a fever, don't send them to school!

There have been around 25 mmr vaccine related deaths in the past three years, for an average of 8 deaths per year related to the vaccine.  There were no measles deaths in 2011, the last year I can find data.  However, I remember a couple of years ago that 2 were reported.  8 is 4 times as many as 2.

Nope. Especially considering the fact that the vaccine didn't do anything in the first place. The measles rate has actually fractionally increased since the vaccine.
