Measles vaccinations – Lets have a much needed conversation.
It’s interesting to note that many of those politicians who advocated swift and strict (not to mention medically unnecessary or counterproductive) government authoritarian steps in dealing with the ebola outbreak seem to have now switched sides when it comes to vaccinations with regard to the current measles outbreak. Funny how that works.
This morning I read an interesting headline about the measles outbreak-
“Measles outbreak is forcing this country to have a much needed conversation about vaccinations.”
I love conversations. I have them all the time. In fact, my most recent conversation was whether or not the leather pants that Kim Kardashian wore to the zoo was a wise fashion choice….I say it wasn’t very respectful to the animals. I’m sure other people may say the animals couldn’t give a damn. Discuss….
See, that is an example of a much needed conversation.
That leads us to the much needed conversation about measles. Let’s take a walk down memory lane.
We had measles in this country.
A vaccination was developed.
People were vaccinated against measles.
We didn’t have measles anymore.
Some false information came out about the dangers of vaccinations.
Some people stopped vaccinating their children against measles and other preventable diseases.
