There Have Been 120 Cases of Measles in 15 States This Year, Says Trinity County Public Health

This is a press release from Trinity County Health and Human Services:

TRINITY COUNTY –  From January 1 to October 7, 2017, 120 people from 15 states (California, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Washington) and the District of Columbia were reported to have measles.

In 2016, 70 people from 16 states were reported to have measles. In 2015, 188 people from 24 states and the District of Columbia were reported to have measles. In 2014, the United States experienced a record number of measles cases, with 667 cases from 27 states reported to CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD); this is the greatest number of cases since measles elimination was documented in the U.S. in 2000.

Measles can be a serious illness in all age groups. However, children younger than 5 years of age and adults older than 20 years of age are more likely to suffer from measles complications:

• Ear infections occur in about one out of every 10 children with measles and can result in permanent hearing loss.

• Some people may suffer from severe complications, such as pneumonia (infection of the lungs) and encephalitis (swelling of the brain). They may need to be hospitalized and could die.

• As many as one out of every 20 children with measles gets pneumonia.

• About one child out of every 1,000 who get measles will develop encephalitis (swelling of the brain) that can lead to convulsions and can leave the child deaf or with intellectual disability.

• For every 1,000 children who get measles, one or two will die from it.

• Measles may cause pregnant woman to give birth prematurely, or have a low birth weight baby.

• The majority of people who got measles were unvaccinated.

• Measles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific and Africa.

• Travelers with measles continue to bring the disease into the U.S.

Measles can spread when it reaches a community in the U.S. where groups of people are unvaccinated. For more information, the link below will direct you to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Measles website.

    How many people died or were seriously injured by measles last year? Not including those who have a hereditary or old age related weakness?

    How many thousands have been made retarded or killed last year by poison laced vaccines?

    • You’rethe problem, bro. Vaccines work best when everyone is on board; there is no science behind your fake news bs about ‘poisonous’ vaccine. Please home school your disease carrying kids.

      • Your statement is 100% incorrect. I highly recommend you take a look at the VAERS website and realize despite the number of reported injuries from vaccines the numbers are actually significantly higher because under reporting or no reporting is frequent. Don’t drink the kool-aid, please!.

        • VAERS is a passive reporting system, and before you access any data, you must click off their disclaimer.

          You know, the one that says that a report to VAERS does not indicate a vaccine caused the injury.

          Talk about drinking the kool-aid, indeed.

  • Vaccinations allow the interdimensional reptilians to control our minds.

    • Probably, but it’s still better than getting measles!

      • Totally agreed!!!!

      • No, I disagree. Innate immunity is far superior to a forced immune response. Knowing how to care for one with measles is possible ( my mother sure did it with her children!) and quite honestly vaccine reactions are far more frequent than a serious complication stemming from natural measles. You do know many of the measles outbreaks on college campuses are in young people who were completely immunized, right?

        • Now you’re confusing measles with mumps.

          Getting ‘natural’ mumps also doesn’t give lifelong immunity. My mother had it twice as a child.

    • No, no, you got it all wrong. The lizard people want us to be healthy, as intergalactic food safety regulations prevent them selling meat from diseased animals.

  • Should you need to file a Vaccine Injury Report, or other information,here is a link..

  • If the vaccines are not harmful then why does this country have a national vaccine injury compensation fund.

    No lizards required.

    I hope all you folks against science and medical standards don’t have to watch your kids die of preventable diseases. I also hope you don’t expect the people of California and the USA to care for you and give you free education, welfare, and Medi-Cal for your personal needs and your children.

    Freedom isn’t free, someone paid for it. Loyalty is not cheap, it has to be earned. No one owes anyone anything. If you are not committed to society, expect nothing, because, eventually, nothing is what you will receive…

    Growing dope, and sticking your middle finger up in the air, will get you nowhere, and will not serve your children well…

  • The present situation we have found ourselves in concerning vaccines is a very difficult one for me, as a parent, and as someone trained in medical care. Having witnessed firsthand a vaccine reaction, and having it dismissed outright by my child’s doctor, makes it personal. Knowing how to use the right half of my brain, I have tried research as a solution. Here is what I found;

    The Solution
    Homeoprophylaxis: The Vaccine Alternative
    Kate Birch, Cilla Whatcott

    The question of requiring vaccinations or not requires us to ask one question. Who owns your body? You or the State (meaning your government). If the State owns your body, like in a communist country, then it can declare you are required to get vaccinated. If you own your body, you get to choose.

    What will you do?

    P.S. Contrary to recent reporting by the North Coast Journal there is at least one doctor in Eureka that will give vaccine exemptions to those that ask, need, and or require them (like for school).

  • When I was a kid we all got measles and mumps, I had both. I was born in 1945
