    This article states that out of 560 children at the school, 6 weren't immunised.

    Of the six - 5 are confirmed/suspected of having it, 1 child has been excluded.


    Those who have not been immunised against measles have been asked not to attend the school until September 2.


    Apart from the five students who have confirmed or suspected measles, only one other student out of 560 has been asked to stay home because they are not immunised.

    I had actually assumed the vax rate was lower at the school. I guess it shows how contagious it is (I'm guessing all 6 kids weren't in the same class).

    It is quite worrying that someone can be so anti vax and so sure that VPDs are harmless, yet not even know what VPDs actually are. Not to mention implying that VPDS don't ever kill anyone when in fact, vaccines save around 3 million lives a year. And measles still kills 200,000 a year which is a heck of a lot better than the 1 million it used to kill - before they introduce mass measles vaccinations in 2004. An 80% drop in 10 years? Who says vaccines don't work!

    It shows better than anything - just how vulnerable unvaxxed people are to VPDS. If there were only 6 unvaxxed in the school and 5 caught the disease!

    This should be enough information to convince families that vaccines work. And how contagious measles is. These stats are frightening when you think about it.

    My biggest question is now that this has happened, it's in the local community how can we protect ourselves, babies and kids.
    Lots of adults haven't had the vax as kids cos it wasn't as big then so we may end up with adults they've been in contact with getting it too.
    A new parent can't be expected to keep their new baby at home until they start vaccinations, but could come in contact with someone who has been exposed anywhere.
    So much heartache and concern that could be prevented in almost all cases.

    Yes, I was just thinking how this puts a hole in the "The rate of measles has dropped due to sanitation not immunisations" argument.

    If 5 out of 6 non-vaxxed children can get it in a country with good sanitation such as Australia (and none of the 554 vaxxed children get it) then I'm not sure how people could argue that measles has nearly been eradicated in Australia due to better sanitation.

    The responses in here have been enough to make me - who has five fully immunised children - feel a little uncomfortable.

    And for what it's worth I believe if you're going to ban non-vaxxed children from schools/kinder/daycare then that should also extend to those who are unable to be vaxxed for medical purposes. They would still pose a risk to those too young to be immunised and to each other ... You can't ban one group and not the other.
    Sorry but there is a HUGE difference between excluding people who choose not to vaccinate and excluding those who cannot. My middle son was delayed with his vaccinations for medical reasons. That was out of our control. It terrified me waiting. As soon as he was able to catch up, he did.

    Totally different situations. Its like punishing someone with a disability or an allergy etc. Its not a damn choice they make.
