Did you read what I quoted? Do you not understand what "only imported and importation-related measles cases occuring in the region" means? Measles is a highly contagious disease. Travelers are going to be bringing it in from other countries. When herd immunity exists, exposure from travelers will result in only a very small number of cases. But if you break herd immunity, then our population is vulnerable to having it re-introduced.

I had the measeles or german measeales, (dont know what the difference was) as I am a child of the 60's.
I do believe in getting vaccinated 100 percent, to me, its a no brainer.
my sons were always vaccinated, with whatever was required.

The sad part is little babies in strollers who can't have the vaccine yet are going to get infected and suffer with this nasty disease and some will get a lifelong disability, or even possibly die

Then it was NOT eliminated.

Most of it comes from people going outside of the country and bringing to back in to the country. Then they continue to spread it to other people who are not vaccinated.

It said I had a 6% chance of developing severe arthritis from the vaccine.


Does the vaccine still carry that risk?

Tyoical: Massive vaccines....another outbreak...Answer: MORE VACCINE..
Does nobody see a hole in this kind of thinking?
Because 91% of the people for whom records are available are, wait, wait, wait, . . . UNVACCINATED! This is the case in most outbreaks. 50 years of vaccine has made people complacent.

I don't know, but as I said that is what was in the fine print of the release form in 1989 which most people don't read. Maybe they have done more research in the last 30 years or tweaked the vaccine but in black and white in 1989 the form said there was a 6% chance of getting severe arthritis from the vaccine.

If you followed the thread, it was my comment. In 1989 I was taking classes at C.W. Post and the campus had a measles outbreak. They required every student born after a certain year to prove they were vaccinated. I was born after the cutoff but had the measles as a kid so I didn't need a vaccination. Then as now they said the vaccine was harmless so I went to get the shot. They handed me a release/authorization form to sign and I read the fine print and it said there was a 6% chance of getting severe arthritis from the shot. It said a lot of other stuff too which I don't remember but the arthritis comment made me walk out without getting the shot.
