    This is news? Going to start writing a story every time someone gets a cold? Measles is a brief inconvenience for the one person who has it. The seasonal flu is more dangerous/deadly than Measles.

      Check out the ingredeints, and side effects of vaccines and ask yourself why would you inject that into your blood stream ?
      Lastly we have vaccine court/ National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program….. I say follow the money and itll lead us to the truth, vaccines are a money maker and a great way to de populate.

      Soon we will hear them say you have a head ache dont worry theres a vaccine for that, its all about the money not to better humanity.
