    Default Third Of Measles Cases Could Just Be A Reaction To The MMR

    Bryan Hubbard
    March 20 2019

    More than 30 per cent of cases of measles contributing to the 'epidemic' that has sparked the clamp-down on anti-vaxxers are nothing more than reactions to the vaccine.

    Seventy-three of the 194 measles cases recorded in California in 2015—the outbreak that sparked the kick-back against the anti-vax movement—were merely reactions to the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine.

    Although the data has never been published, researchers from the US's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have confirmed that the analysis is correct.

    "'It is very important to identify vaccine reactions to avoid unnecessary isolation of the patient,' the researchers say."

    Where is the proof that the 'symptoms' (=actual contagious measles infection, maybe?) are not contagious and therefore patients needn't be isolated? If it's not proven, looks as though it's time for non-vaccinators to protest the possibility of the vaccinated spreading measles! Considering how many of the cases in the California school were vaccinated, and how the contagion spread among the students, I'm guessing it is contagious.

    Makes sense to me, Pattypans. Ever deeper down the rabbit hole.

    Given the major controversy surrounding the MMR vaccine, perhaps it's time to go back to administering the vaccines for measles, mumps, & rubella separately. Individual vaccines for each of these conditions still exist because other countries, like Japan, still administer these vaccines separately. This would give the public a clear-eyed view of the reactions to each of them. Also, reportedly, the MMR vaccine can react to the bovine extract and bovine casein in the DTaP vaccine in some children. Yet again, another reason to administer the MMR vaccines separately to help determine if it's one of the vaccines or the synergy of the three that reacts to DTaP.

    Both of my daughters are parents. One of them followed her pediatrician's instructions to the letter; her child is severely asthmatic. The other made the decision to slow the pace of vaccines down and take the MMR singly; her child is relatively healthy, although he comes down with far more colds etc. than my kids did at any age. Coincidence?

    The MMR vaccine became available in 1971, developed by Merck. When I was a kid, we all got the measles, mumps, & chickenpox. Then, individual vaccines were developed and made available for measles in 1963, mumps in 1967, and rubella in 1969. It didn't take long for the idea to emerge to combine all three, and thus, voila, the MMR in 1971. So, it should come as no surprise that the MMRV vaccine is on the horizon. The V is for varicella, or chickenpox. Preliminary data show that 9 out of 10,000 children suffer seizures after taking the MMRV vaccines, compared to 4 out of 10,000 when the MMR and varicella vaccines are given separately. Stay tuned.
