Anti-Vaxxers Have Brought Measles Back

At least Flat Earthers aren’t putting our lives at risk.  Anti-vaxxers, on the other hand, are.

If you’re over 30, you should ask your doctor if you need to get a new booster shot… because anti-vaxxers have brought MEASLES back. The measles vaccine was updated in 1989 after a few outbreaks.  That vaccine is REALLY effective… but if you were born before 1989, you only got about half of the dose, which might not be enough.

Meanwhile, if you’re wondering how various local governments are handling the measles outbreak . . . well, you can probably guess.

Here’s one example:

Tennessee just shut down its measles hotline… because it was getting too many calls.
