Thanks, Anti-Vaxxers. You Just Brought Back Measles in NYC.

Measles was considered eliminated at the turn of the millennium. Now it’s back, thanks to the loons who refuse to vaccinate their children.

Of all the things to be nostalgic for, infectious diseases probably don’t make it onto many lists.

However, if you happen to pine for the good old days when measles was an active public health threat, I have good news for you. The anti-vaccine crowd is bringing it back.

There is currently an outbreak of measles in New York City.  Considered eliminated in the United States in 2000, last year saw a record number of outbreaks around the country. It’s only three months into 2014, and not only is the nation’s largest city seeing cases in several boroughs, but other major metropolitan areas are warning of new cases as well....

Yep.  The anti-vaxxers (like the flouride-in-the-water-is-bad crowd) are nuts.  It's been proven over and over again that vaccines have nothing to do with autism, but the fruitcakes insist they do.

Just keep your non-vaccinated kid at home, all the time, you goofballs.  Don't expose my kid to some disease because of your superstitious beliefs.

Wait until Polio makes a comeback. The Jenny McCarthy/Alex Jones Science Consortium will probably claim it is a Monsanto conspiracy.
