ANTI-VACCINATION MOVEMENT - Consequences of Misinformation

"Washington state’s measles outbreak coincides with low rates of immunization" PBS NewsHour 1/28/2019


SUMMARY:  Washington state is experiencing an outbreak of measles, with 35 confirmed cases in a single county.  The disease's flare-up is reinforcing concerns about insufficient immunization in some communities.  Hari Sreenivasan talks to Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health about why measles remains a serious disease and how to address misinformation within the anti-vaccination movement.

REMINDER:  Not vaccinating children endangers other children, not just the parent's own child.

Frontline: "The Vaccine War"

A must view to see the truth, pay close attention to the Denmark study.
