If your kids are intentionally not vaccinated and you live in an area where there is a big measles outbreak, then you are hopefully saying, “where can I get an MMR for my child.”
And you hope that your “vaccine friendly” pediatrician has vaccines and will actually vaccinate your kids…
What Are Anti-Vaccine Folks Saying About the Measles Outbreaks?
And while many parents change their minds and ending up vaccinating their kids when faced with an outbreak, you likely won’t be surprised about what some folks think or say during an outbreak of measles.
Yes, these are the things anti-vaccine folks say to try and reassure themselves that they made a good decision to intentionally leave their kids unvaccinated and at risk for a life-threatening disease. One that their kids are even more at risk of getting, because there is an outbreak in their community.
While you’re researching measles, do a little research about vaccines too.
Your kids will feel better if they are vaccinated and protected and don’t have measles.
