Mayo Clinic Warning: “Explosive Outbreak” Due To Autism Hoax

“This all emanates from the false notion that in some odd manner measles vaccine could cause autism. That is not true.” – Dr. Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic Vaccine Research Group

| Mayo Clinic News Network – Measles infections are now confirmed in 30 states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

According to Dr. Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic Vaccine Research Group,

“We have more measles cases than we have had in the last 30 years. This is an explosive outbreak.”

“This is a reflection of people not being vaccinated and not understanding the severity of measles. If you get measles, you have about a 1 in 1,000 chance of having encephalitis. That is an infection of the brain, and it will change your life forever if you survive it.”

Worldwide, more than 100,000 people a year, mostly children under 5, die from measles.

Watch: Dr. Gregory Poland talks about measles

Measles is a highly contagious viral infection that spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

The virus can live up to two hours in an airspace where an infected person coughed or sneezed. Up to 90% of the people close to the infected person who are not immune or vaccinated also will become infected.

Dr. Poland says:

“This is, again, preventable, and this all emanates from the false notion that in some odd manner measles vaccine could cause autism. That is not true. It is a falsehood, and it has infected a lot of people’s thinking. And as a result, they hesitate to get measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. They reject the vaccine, and it is causing one tragedy after another across this nation and across Europe.”

The CDC recommends all children get two doses of measles, mumps rubella (MMR) vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12–15 months and the second dose at ages 4–6.

Teens and adults who are not sure if they are immune should contact their health care provider.

By Chelsea Whyte,  30 July 2019

HEALTH – The number of measles cases reported in the US continues to rise.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now reports that there have been 1164 cases of measles in 30 states as of 25 July.

This is the highest number of cases seen in one year since 1992.

In 2014, the last year a large outbreak occurred in the US, there were a total of 667 cases of measles through the whole year.

The number of measles cases so far in 2019 is nearly double that, a concerning trend that has led to severe policies from public health authorities trying to stem outbreaks in New York City and other hard-hit areas.
