When I was growing up, measles were not that big of a deal. Occasionally, people would get them, they would be out of school for a few days, then they got over them and life went on. Today, everything is hyped into a major crisis of outrage, and government oppression. The answer to every problem, it seems, is to take away more of our individual liberty. In this case, undermining parental rights and authority with the iron fist of government dictation — telling parents that they have no right or say over the health and well-being of their own children.

A measles outbreak in Brooklyn, primarily among Orthodox Jewish children, prompted New York City on Tuesday to declare a public health emergency, requiring unvaccinated people in the affected areas to get the vaccine or face fines.

The city’s largest outbreak since 1991 of the once virtually eradicated disease has mainly been confined to the Orthodox Jewish community in the borough’s Williamsburg neighborhood, with 285 cases confirmed since October, Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference. That’s up sharply from only two reported cases in all of 2017.

“This is the epicenter of a measles outbreak that is very, very troubling and must be dealt with immediately,” de Blasio said. He was joined by city health officials who decried what they called “misinformation” spread by opponents of vaccines.

They don't go into detail about what "misinformation" they are talking about. But anyone looking into the ingredients in these vaccines would and should be concerned, if they really care about their health and that of their children. Read Vaccines: 50 Things Your Doctor Forgot to Tell You, and Vaccines that Kill Children for starters.

Setting the health issues aside, if vaccination was so effective at preventing disease, then why isn't it working for the children who are already vaccinated? Why aren't they protected? Why the need to vaccinate everyone? The only ones getting the measles should be those who have not been vaccinated against them. That's not the case? Then, there must be something else going on.

Via The New York Times:

Measles was proclaimed eliminated in the United States in 2000, but a handful of outbreaks have spread in recent years. There have been 314 confirmed measles cases in the United States in 2019, as of March 21, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In addition to New York, there have also been recent measles outbreaks (three or more cases) in Washington State, Texas, Illinois and California, the C.D.C. said.

What's changed "in recent years" to cause this outbreak? Could there be some other thing happening that has contributed to the problem?
