We can not talk about the outbreak of the bark in Michigan, without discussing the movement against the Wax.
And we can not discuss the movement against the vox without considering the assumption that the measles vaccine as a whole
At this stage, 39 people were diagnosed with measles in Michigan, the largest number since 1991.
Thousands of cases may not seem so great for a disease that once was so widespread that publicly – health officials consider that someone who was born before 1957 already has it.
For most Americans of this generation, measles has been a miserable experience ̵
But there is a reason why the measles vaccine was met with such excitement in 1963 year, especially among doctors. Cir may have serious complications, including pneumonia, encephalitis, and hearing loss.
People may die. Before the vaccine became widespread, the crust killed approximately 2.6 million people in the world. Most of the victims were children.
Even today, about 100 thousand people die every year from bark. This is not only in third world countries. Death from a cortex recently occurred in Israel, Italy, France. German health officials say that a quarter of the patients reporting a bark were hospitalized
. The vaccine works. Cyrus can go through the path of smallpox – complete elimination – if enough people will be vaccinated.
Enter the movement against the vaccine, which considers the vaccine as its own health hazard.
Hundreds of Michigan schools and childcare programs are vulnerable to cortex outbreaks due to the number of unvaccinated children, according to public health data.
Nearly 400 state and private schools of K-12 and 295 day-care programs had 10% or more of their students abandoned in 2017, showing state records. More than 1,000 K-12 and 800-day care homes have vaccines of over 5%, accounting for about a quarter of all K-12 schools and 22% of daily worries. Experts say that you need 95% vaccination in order to keep the bark.

This database shows vaccine rates for 2017 for more than 3,700 childcare programs in Michigan. The law requires these means to receive a record of vaccination or refusal of children who are again included in their program.
Quality of the sources
When I first started to report vaccines and the movement against the vaox in 2014, I began with research on both sides
Quickly, I found myself a rabbit hole of infinite arguments and counter-arguments.
To shift to the pursuit, I changed the focus from the amount of information to the quality of the sources.
are the highest experts on each side? What do published published peer-reviewed studies say? Where are the medical and scientific organizations
With this, the fog lifted
What I found: The world's medical and scientific community is firmly overwhelming, on the side of vaccination. For the past ninety years, I have not yet faced any major medical organization that supports the movement against the vax.
But this does not explain global support for vaccines – in countries where Great Pharm is unaffected, in socialized systems where the motive of profit is non-factual.
The vaccine consensus is particularly impressive when you consider all the many, many, many current debates in the medical community. The value of cardiac stents, back surgery, opioids to name a few. Terms and frequency of mammography and testing of PSA. Last week, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association announced that they would no longer recommend aspirin every day to reduce the risk of heart attacks. There are even bigger conflicts around the world in terms of excellence all over the world.
However, the importance of vaccination involves medical institutions around the world, experts from different countries with different medical perspectives and traditions.

. There are cases of serious adverse reactions to the vaccine. Some people who are completely vaccinated can still get this disease. Legitimate debates can be made on which vaccines should be obligatory and cost-benefit analysis.
But after decades of large-scale immunization there is a huge amount of evidence that the benefits of vaccines far outweigh the minuses. In the early 1960s, the United States averaged between 400,000 and 500,000 registered bark cases per year. By 1968, their number is less than 25,000. Today, due to vaccination, America has virtually eliminated the disease spread in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, most American children have received the MMR vaccine to prevent bark, epidemic mumps and rubella. Reactions are very, very rare. How rarely Between 2006 and 2017, more than 101 million doses of the MMR vaccine were administered to the United States. During this time, the National Harm Reduction Program paid 120 claims for serious MMR injuries – one settlement for every 850,000 doses.
To put the latest statistics into context: About one in 1,000 patients with bark die and do not include those who experience complications, such as hearing loss or permanent brain damage. It also does not include deaths and complications associated with parotitis and rubella. it's a virus in the air and one of the most contagious diseases on the planet.
It is not an exaggeration to say that only part of the MMR vaccine from cortex has saved tens of millions of lives worldwide – and thousands in the United States – over the past 40 years. It is very, very difficult to assert that the risks associated with MMR prevail.
There is a lot of irony here. Non-vaccinated Americans regard bark as a threat because they live under the protective status of herd immunity. To get measles, you must be exposed to the virus. When you live in a community where the vast majority have been vaccinated, the chances of a case are greatly reduced.
But the more anti-Wuxiists persuade others not to vaccinate, the more immune the flock is destroyed and the cortex grows. We see this in Europe, Israel and Japan. In the United States. In Michigan
What is happening in Michigan is not a cause for panic. But this is anxiety. We really do not want to go back to the times when measles ran.
