Saw an article the other day where parents in Seattle have suddenly decided maybe they should get their kids vaccinated. Seem vaccinations are up something like 3000 %

Also read an article saying kids who get measles are far more likely to die of other illnesses. The connection is startling and there is more research needed. The working theory is that the measles wipes out a major portion of the immune system, and it takes a long time to recover those immunities, even to diseases they already had immunity to.

I also saw a reference yesterday, I can't remember where, to the fact that a lot of teens are sneaking off to the doc's office themselves against their parent's wishes to get vaccinated, which causes some issues for ethical doctors. But apparently there are a lot of clinics that will do it no questions asked.

They decided it was a good idea based on social media.
