In California, Thousands Exposed to Measles
NBC News ^ | February 13 20124 | By JoNel Aleccia

Posted on 02/13/2014 8:51:41 PM PST by CorporateStepsister

Thousands of San Francisco Bay Area residents may have been exposed to measles last week when an unvaccinated student at the Unversity of California, Berkeley, attended classes and rode the area's BART transit system.

Public health officials in Contra Costa County, outside of San Francisco, said anyone riding BART from Feb. 4 to Feb. 7 during the morning or late evening commutes could have been exposed to the highly contagious respiratory virus. The young man in his 20s lives in the county and was confirmed to have measles on Wednesday. He was likely infected while traveling recently in Asia, health officials said.

Dear Lord, what does being unvaccinated have to do with anything other than this student's potential ability to avoid measles - maybe. Do people think that just because some percentage of the population is vaccinated, that the measles virus doesn't exist around us?

This is sheer scare tactics based on raw ignorance as an advertisement for vaccination. It's absurd.

Ok...so let’s follow the logic. Why are vaccinated people worried?

Pain is not the major problem. If an adult man gets the measles, he may become sterile. That is the problem with men and measles.

No, you're confusing that with the Mumps.

It’s mumps and it is not just men who suffer. Women also are affected. Their ovaries can get inflamed. And you can get a wicked bad headache! I know that from personal experience. I’ve had all my ‘childhood diseases’ as an adult.

I don't know anyone that didn't have the measles, chicken pox, and the mumps!

That was part of growing up.

The only thing I didn't like was the 2 week quarantine!

Measles is vicious, I know someone whose kid died from it.

A great number of California granola crunchers are avoiding vaccination and endangering everyone else when they traipse off around the world, and then pick up the disease.

Idiots, the whole lot of them. I’ll have to check to make sure I’m vaccinated (although I’m sure I am) and I plan on vaccinating my kids no matter what.

When you think about it, the granola munchers (and the other things these weirdos munch) are likeliest to get infected.

Vaccinations are a public-health measure. Some are not clear on the concept.

Maybe that was then, but in the last 50 years, people are vaccinated against measles but not chicken pox.

That is German Measles. A completely different virus.

Between my childhood shots, my military shots, and my health care professional, I thinki I have been immunized against measles, mumps, and rubella about a dozen times.
