    Nowhere does it mention whether or not the student had been inoculated previously for measles. Not to inflict ill upon others, but if not inoculated, the student should be placed in the home of an anti-vaccine freak. See how they feel about that.

  2. Thankfully, measles is a largely harmless disease from which everyone makes a full recovery (a rash, a cold, and a few days off school). But I am curious if this person received the MMR, which rarely works anyway. All of the Harvard students who contracted the mumps had received the MMR, but what good did it do? More silly fearmongering over mild diseases
    by the press.

    FACT: Measles can cause life-threatening pneumonia and brain inflammation, middle-ear infection, severe diarrhea, and sometimes death.

    FACT: Measles has a devastating and long-term effect on your immune system. If you get measles, your immune system can start forgetting other illnesses you’ve encountered, leaving you vulnerable to a whole array of diseases.

    I bet you promote no condoms, seat belts or car seats for children. You are a fool.
