    That country with measles cases might have been in Europe. I’m from Romania, where the vaccination rate has dropped bellow 85% (95% is recommended for efficient herd immunity). For the last couple of years we’ve had over 15000 cases of measles (90% never vaccinated individuals). and 59 deaths.

    If you can’t trust the advice of medical professionals on vaccines, what is your stance if they recommend surgery for something? At what point do you start trusting them?

    Polio, smallpox, diphtheria, measles, tetanus, chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough. We haven’t seen epidemics because of vaccines. FDR helped start the March of Dimes to get a polio vaccine developed. No one thinks about the summers kids couldn’t go outside because of polio epidemics and iron lungs.
    My son got every vaccine available at the time. I would do it again.

    Given that there are a few patients w Measels at a single hospital and dates and times of visits can identify the patient this can easily be a privacy violation as well.

    How does a nurse not believe in the merits of vaccination…

    If you do not believe in modern medicine, you should not be working in the healthcare industry.

Draw a Venn diagram. In one circle write “AntiVaxxers” and in the other circle write “Flat Earthers”. Notice how well the circles overlap?

As a nurse for 50 years, I have lived through the no -vacc. era. I had friends who were paralyzed from polio and my sister almost died from whooping cough. I believe this nurse should lose her license for breaking confidentiality but mostly for going against what is universally accepted as good health practice around the world. People look to nurses for sound advice and help in making positive health decisions. She is putting people at risk by not promoting actions that easily prevent serious diseases. She needs to chose another line of work that does not depend on the application of scientific data and common sense. Also, all hospitals should require nurses to be vaccinated as a requirement of employment. We should all be very frightened to be exposed to unvaccinated caregivers.

    This is a great example of correlation and causation. Vaccines are the reason why we don’t suffer from these diseases. Duh.

    What DID they teach her in nursing school about the history of disease?
    FYI 1 out of every 4 to 5 kids used to die before the age of 19 200 years ago,
    mostly from measles and other ”childhood” ailments.
    Another example of the wave of unreason sweeping America.

    She had never seen a case… Back in the day before vaccinations, we mothers, and medical staff, saw it all the time. Guess we were used to it. My children got it all, except for my son who got cow pox and missed out on one. Spent a lot of time with Calamine lotion. Didn’t routinely take them to a doctor in those days, as they were contagious. We mothers shared information on how to take care of them, or asked the pharmacist. I never knew of anyone personally who died of any of the childhood diseases. As for myself, mother said I had German measles and nothing else. Polio, scarlet fever and TB were the scary ones.

    If you don’t understand and appreciate how vaccines work and why they are miracles to modern public health, you’d never make it through med school

    While vaccines are important there is a subset of the population where they do harm. Ask my nephew who became paralyzed after a Hep C vaccine. Nearly 3 years of rehab at Mayo Clinic. Just saying they are not a one size fits all.

    I can’t believe we’re still talking about this: Vaccinate your Kids. Their lives depend on it.

    You know, back in the 1800’s, people didn’t have vaccines or antibiotics, they didn’t have all of our modern technology, they didn’t have access to vitamin-rich food and clean water, and they lived to the ripe old age of “died in childbirth”…You know, like the United States is going back to..
