    Same, I will never, ever understand - unless there are medical reasons of course.

    Doesn't it say babies under 12 months were affected - babies under 12 months aren't immunised against measles. So how can they be counted in the "non vaccinated" camp? The vax is AT 12 months. Confusing.

    Unless you have walked a mile in someones shoes it's a terrible thing to judge someone.

    And yet so many non vaxers do not vaccinate for medical reasons, but that seems to fall of deaf ears.......

    I don't think that is confusing. It just shows that we all need to be up to date, to protect those that aren't yet or can't be vaccinated.

    HOw is it so many? Severe vax reactions are 1 in 1 million, how can that possible equate to "so many"???

    Oh right, of course, measles discriminates and avoids those that have parents who are conscientious objectors. How fascinating - in a totally non scientific way

    This is just the start, if you look at the global trend then we could be in for a lot more.
