The U.S. is in the middle of the worst outbreak of measles since the disease was naturally eradicated from the county in 2000. But while the majority of victims are children whose parents decided not to vaccinate them or people who have chosen to go unvaccinated, even some people who got the measles vaccine as children might still be at real risk, depending on their age.

Earlier this month, Israeli public health officials reported that a 43-year-old Israeli woman had fallen into a deep coma as a result of a measles infection, a rare complication of the viral, flu-like disease. Israel is currently struggling with its own outbreaks of measles, and like the one in the U.S., it’s largely due to transmission between pockets of unvaccinated people (the woman was a flight attendant on an airline that regularly flies between the U.S. and Israel, so she may have contracted it in either country). But the woman herself was vaccinated, though not to the same degree as many people are now.

The article goes on to state the following:

Nowadays, children get two doses of the combination measles, mumps, and rubella, or MMR, vaccine starting at the age of one. But as recently as the 1980s, people in the U.S. and elsewhere were only given one shot. It was only in 1989, following a series of outbreaks, that public health experts in the U.S. endorsed a two-dose MMR schedule. The MMR vaccine, like so many, isn’t perfectly effective against measles even with two shots (97 percent effective), but it’s still better than one shot (93 effective).

    People don’t realize that measles is very dangerous for pregnant women & those with immune deficiency issues. I wouldn’t make light of this outbreak.

      I agree! When I was pregnant they tested me for diabetes, they found out then my measles shot was no good.( I was 35 yr old when I was pregnant). I was petrified of being exposed to hurt my unborn daughter. That was 1998. As soon as I delivered, they came in and gave me my shot. I will never forget the fear I felt, so why should anyone put an elder or children in harms way because of their irresponsible actions. People who are battling cancer…. they cannot be exposed … think
      About it people, seriously… it’s NOT a money maker. We eradicated polio , TB, Measles , and guess what, the crap is back! Grow up please!
