‘Measles parties’ and anti-vaxxers fueled 2019 outbreak in NYC

The findings should serve as a dire warning for those considering a “COVID-19 party.”

Don’t let history repeat itself.

Last year’s measles outbreak in New York City was significantly impacted by parents who refused to vaccinate their children and those who made their kids participate in ill-advised “measles parties,” a new study has found.

The parties involved healthy children deliberately playing with a sick child to get the measles in the hopes of “getting it over with” and gaining future immunity. The findings could serve as a dire warning for those hosting “COVID-19 parties” with comparable intentions — and similarly devastating consequences.
