  1. Sounds like an ad for the building of the tower of Bavel – “Let’s all join together to prevent all future floods!”

    Only HKB”H could eradicate Measles outbreaks!

  2. MMR shot contains a live virus.
    As long as we are injecting a live virus into people, it is actually impossible to eradicated the disease.
    Catch 22 situation

  3. Vaccines save lives.
    However you should know that all immuno-compromised ppl should stay away from newly vaccinated individuals for up to 3 weeks, as the virus in the vaccine could shed.
    And if you are newly vaccinated, make sure everyone succeptible. stays away from you, so they don’t get ill.
    As heard from a top oncologist.

  4. Thank Gd for modern science and the ability to safely prevent dangerous diseases! There are so many people immune compromised people relying on herd immunity. Kol yisroel Areivim Zev Lazeh!!

  5. There are hundreds of other diseases and autoimmune conditions that are affecting way more people in a much, much bigger way. Why this obsessiveness over a handful of measle cases? Is this really the number one health crisis that we are dealing with today? It’s a lot easier to scream “vaccinate!” Than to figure out and deal with why we have so many obese kids, so many children with neurodevelopmental and autoimmune disorders, the real issues of the day.

  6. Hmmm…. do you think there is any truth to the link between MMR shot and auto-immune conditions such as autism and adhd?
    i think i’m gonna start doing some more research… but in the meantime… don’t forget to vaccinate!

  7. Let’s put this in context: you’re right, it should not be a ‘real issue of the day’ because vaccines have been proven to eradicate disease and if people would just follow the protocols then it wouldn’t be an issue today. Unfortunately, due to purposeful misinformation, parents are making the wrong choices and it has an affect on everyone else. Communicable diseases are dangerous and it’s sad that we can’t seem to grasp that concept in this place and time. Perhaps because we were so close to being free of them, this generation can’t imagine the fear and decimation they caused.

  8. @pro-vax why in the world is an oncologist you primary source of information regarding vaccines?!?

    The same way you don’t ask a vet about cancer…

    • When a close family member was undergoing chemo, i was told not to vaccinate my kids with any live viruses as they can shed and spread the disease. that would be quite fatal for someone immuno-compromised

  9. There are many ways to get sick, it’s not all about viruses. We have exchanged mostly benign childhood diseases for a plethora of scary autoimmune coditions like cancer, diabetes, etc. It is very shortsighted to say if I get vaccinated, all will be well. Health starts inside out; with G-d’s help when you feed your kids well and stay away from injected poison, their immune systems will work as Hashem designed them to. A healthy body can handle all these viruses just fine. Let’s not be lazy, and work and pray for a generation of healthy children.

  10. Again, Let’s put this in context: Diabetes has been a reported disease for over 2000 years, first described in 250 BCE. And thanks to modern medical advancement, it is treatable and for many, now reversible.

  11. How come we don’t hear about people contracting polio anymore? Or hepatitis?

    Thanks to vaccines, those viruses have been eradicated!

  12. Again, educate yourself on the context of childhood diabetes. Although diabetes has been diagnosed for thousands of years, the first childhood case of adult onset diabetes (type 2) was reported only 20 years ago. According to the CDC it is now growing at a rate of 4.8% annually!
