Well, first we have the widely reported Measles outbreak and now it seems we're getting Mumps. I guess Rubella will be next since those that refused the Measles vaccine missed the others as well.

Amazing how in the 50s, almost every kid at school, at home, and in the neighborhood contracted measles, chicken pox, and mumps without triggering a panic (or a news story)--and lived to talk about it.

I guess kids were just tougher in those days. Some even caught the flu and lived through it.

This is obviously because of the 0.05% of parents who don't immunize there children, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the tens of thousands of illegal alien children that our government scattered about the country last year

The only thing people used to worry about was mumps and that was because it was said that males who got mumps after puberty had a good chance of becoming sterile. But this article says that infertility was not a common after effect.

Mumps
