Los Angeles County Declares Measles Outbreak

Los Angeles County Declares Measles Outbreak

Also, measles cases in the United States have now officially surpassed the record that had been previously achieved after the virus was declared eliminated nationwide in 2000.

We have followed the rapid spread of measles cases around the nation.

The last time we reported, a measles-infected visitor had stopped into Google’s Silicon Valley headquarters and public health officials had to issue appropriate warnings. Now, officials have declareda measles outbreak in Los Angeles County.

Public health officials in Los Angeles have declared a measles outbreak in the county, making it the latest metropolitan area to be hit by the illness and part of a national surge in cases rapidly approaching record numbers.

Five cases of measles are being investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Though vaccination rates are typically high in California, a single case can easily spread — not only to those who are not vaccinated, but also to infants who cannot yet receive immunization and to elderly patients with suppressed immune systems.

The epicenter of potential infections is around two of the area university campuses: UCLA and Cal State L.A. Not only were people potentially exposed to an infected person in public areas, California students of that age-range may not have their vaccinations..

…People who are now in their early 20s are part of what’s known as the “Wakefield generation,” because they were infants in 1998 when British scientist Andrew Wakefield published a now discredited paper claiming that vaccines cause autism. Scared of the side effects of vaccination, many parents chose to opt out.

California implemented one of the country’s strictest immunization laws in 2016 to try to increase vaccination rates, but high school students and young adults who had already finished their schooling when the law took effect were not required to comply. That has left a large pool of young people especially vulnerable to infections, experts say.

“Our eyes are always focused on these elementary schools … but [vaccine refusal] has been going on for a while now, so you have under-vaccinated kids becoming under-vaccinated adults,” said UC Riverside professor Richard M. Carpiano, a medical sociologist who studies vaccine hesitancy. “This is a higher education issue.”

Officials identified these points as those with potential measles exposure, which includes the 2 campuses and LAX.

  • LAX, Tom Bradley International Terminal, Gate 218 on April 1 from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • UCLA’s Franz Hall on April 2, 4,and 9 and Boelter Hall on April 2 and 9 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m;
  • Cal State Los Angeles’ main library, on April 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.;
  • El Pollo Loco restaurant, 1939 Verdugo Blvd., La Canada Flintridge, on April 11 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and
  • El Sauz Tacos, 4432 San Fernando Road, Glendale, on April 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

LA County is offering free vaccinations for uninsured or under-insured individuals at public health clinics.

Measles cases in the United States have now officially surpassed the record that had been previously achieved after the virus was declared eliminated nationwide in 2000.

Overall, there have been 681 measles cases across 22 states this year, according to CNN’s analysis of data from state and local health departments.
Previously, the highest number of reported cases since elimination was 667 in 2014.

The states reporting measles cases are Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington.

…”I do believe that parents’ concerns about vaccines leads to undervaccination, and most of the cases that we’re seeing are in unvaccinated communities,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the CDC, said in February at a congressional hearing about measles outbreaks.

Nationally, the United States has high measles vaccination coverage. The CDC says 91.5% of US children aged 19 months to 35 months received at least one dose of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine in 2017, the most recent year available.

“However, there are pockets of people who are vaccine-hesitant,” Messonnier said.

Not to worry. The homeless will not be affected because the MSM and liberals are vaccinated to protect them.

Free vaccinations for the poor are great, but most of the unvaccinated people in LA are rich white anti-science liberals.

I have plans to travel… it includes LAX.
There is plenty of time,, but I am not taking any chances.

The first thing I thought about was how to make sure I have the proper vaccinations.

According to this article there is supposed to be a database somewhere, and there is a blood test that can make a determination.

TY Leslie.

Welcome to the Middle Ages

How long before the MSM/DNC axis blames Trump for this?

“…People who are now in their early 20s are part of what’s known as the “Wakefield generation,” because they were infants in 1998 when British scientist Andrew Wakefield published a now discredited paper claiming that vaccines cause autism.”

This is embarrassing propaganda on a legal website, simply repeating journalistic talking points without investigation. Please read the lengthy Walker-Smith High Court decision which sets out the facts in great detail, including extensive expert evidence, and which vindicated Wakefield and the other physicians entirely.

Walker-Smith v General Medical Council [2012] EWHC 503

I expect the recent outbreaks are resulting more from negligent manufacture of vaccines than anything else. In more than one of the outbreaks some 75-80% of the infected persons had already received the MMR vaccination. Vaccine manufacturers are exempt from tort liability for negligent manufacture.

    Your link does not vindicate Wakefield.

      Legal Researcher in reply to sheepgirl. | April 26, 2019 at 1:29 pm

      Sure it does. Read the case. The court found there was nothing whatsoever improper with the 12 case studies nor with the publication that followed and ordered Walker-Smith reinstated, vindicating all 12 of the physicians who published the paper, Wakefield included. The Lancet paper had been revoked only on the basis that the 12 cases studies were scientific research and that IRB approval for the research had not yet been issued. The court held that all the procedures on the children were within accepted standard of care and there was no scientific research on the 12 children, so the Lancet had been wrong in revoking the publication. The medical findings and observations in the paper have never been challenged. Sadly, the targeting of these leading gastroenterologists set back some 20 years research on the link between gut health and autism and other neurological conditions. Fortunately focus has recently returned to gut brain connections, vindicating the research in the 1998 paper.

      Wakefield, by the way, was never anti-vaccine and never made a claim of causality and in fact denied their work showed causality. He was simply the spokesman for the 12 co-authors. (You can watch the video of the press conference they gave and verify.) He did say it might be advisable to split the MMR into separate vaccines. Japan no longer uses combined MMR and has separated out the mumps component.

In case you don’t have enough to keep you up at night worrying:

The Border Patrol is currently holding 20 Congolese illegal immigrants. When EBOLA finally comes to the US general population it will be across the Southern Border. And, it will spread with the illegals to every major city.

Undervaxed first world meet unvaxed third world. Herd effect only works in closed group. I will leave you with one word about a virus that is out there …waiting…polio.

Unless you are immuniocompromised and will die of anything and shouldnt be in public, Measles itself is merely unpleasant (at least in 2019 where we have advanced medicine and most people are obese instead of malnourished).

A second problem is normally you can’t get a “Measles” vaccine, only MMR. And it may contain sqalene, polysorbate 80, aluminum, mercury, dead baby cells and who knows what else. Please DO READ the insert included for all the side-effects.

The only immunity provided is to big Pharma since if your child is injured, you go to the kangaroo “vaccine court” that has all kinds of limits (and is a clear violation of the 7th Amendment as most are over $20).

Sharyl Atkinson also had this documentary:

Note the FDA doesn’t bother actually doing any double blind testing for safety or effectiveness on vaccines. You probably didn’t know that, but there really was more testing on viagra and cialis to insure it didn’t hurt or kill and actually worked than ANY vaccine.

The basic antigen causing immune response science is settled, but that isn’t everything. Yes, CO2 IS a greenhouse gas, that science is settled, but it is a bad argument to then extend that to we will all die unless we go back to the stone age in the next 12 years. Similarly, the mass and everything at once vaccinations aren’t proven safe.

I’m pro-science but anti politicized-pseudo-science. Lots of money is made, and there is no liability with vaccines. There is no “bifurcated needle” measles vaccine like there was for smallpox. Nor an oral vaccine like the polio virus. Witch Doctor must inject witches brew using needle for the vaccine voodoo magic to work!

Meanwhile, are we turning every “migrant” at the border into a pincushion, giving them the 20 or so vaccines we will give to children before releasing them into society?

And LA has a Typhus outbreak, but won’t do anything about that. Nor Hepatitis A. Nor HIV or other STD and IV Drug diseases THAT CAN KILL YOU!. Oh, but measles! There’s also a more serious mumps outbreak on many college campuses (which isn’t being covered) which can lead to far WORSE complications including sterility than measles (mumps in children is generally mild and annoying, but also not life threatening in 2019 in the first world – oh, yea, LA CA…)

But beyond that, whose body is it anyway? If the state can compel vaccinating your baby, it can also ban circumcision.

You want to take the risk with your child, make an informed decision, read the insert, and go ahead or not.

I recently had a small wound and a Tetanus shot was recommended as a booster, but there was no Tetanus vaccine, only Diptheria Pertussus Tetanus, or DT. So I decided not to bother. At a different time, when I was at risk I got a HPB vaccination. But it was only HPB.

My point is that if there were an oral or bifurcated needle scrape version of the Measles only vaccine, it might be accepted, but Big Pharma makes too much money putting out the mouldy oldies because government requires them. So why bother doing the research finding a safer vaccine if you never will be held liable no matter how many children are damaged by your product?

It’s really all about illegal aliens, there are not enough non vaccinated people in America to be producing these numbers but WHOA FAT, can’t tell the truth!

And polio, it’s already here, a variant that our current vaccine does not cover, but surprisingly NOT, it is endemic in Central America!
Bam, give that man a bone!

Blaming American citizens for all the shit hole issues one illness, one death at a time…

    You’re right on point. Illegal immigration brings in diseases that have been eradicated here in the past.

      zennyfan in reply to Tel. | April 26, 2019 at 12:15 pm

      So does air travel. That’s how Ebola came to the U.S. in 2014 (which wasn’t eradicated here because we never had it).

The issue is probably not vaccines, but rather unaudited migration (e.g. illegal and legal immigration, tourism), including undetected, perhaps vaccinated, carriers.

Major lacunae in the newspaper accounts all have to do with the lack of reference to South America, such as Venezuela, with its collapsed health care system that has let the disease loose on its neighbors.

Next: Frogs, locusts, boils and blood.

Well, I’m convinced, the Apocalypse is upon us. Five cases of measles in a metropolitan area with a population of 4 million people. We’re DOOMED!!!!!

This is all a scam. One more time, if a person has been vaccinated twice, with the latest vaccination being within the last 10 years, they should have sufficient immunity to avoid contracting the disease.

What is interesting is, with all of the publicity surrounding the big measles epidemic, we seem to have trouble getting any meaningful information on the cases. Are they US citizens or foreigners? What are their ages? Were they vaccinated? If so, when was their last vaccination? If not, why not? But, all we have here is speculation.

The spike in measles is being used as a fear campaign. If the CDC had issued this type of warning, about measles, back in 1970, people would have laughed. This is the medical equivalent of the current global warming scare.

Let me repeat, a person who has received 2 MMR vaccinations, the last being within the last 10-15 years, that person should have sufficient immunity to avoid contracting measles. That is the purpose of vaccination. And, statistically, an unvaccinated infant has more of a chance of dying while being driven to the supermarket by Mom, than it does from contracting measles.

    You would prefer health officials keep outbreaks of infectious diseases to themselves? Censored as a state secret, perhaps?

      The problem with this measles s**t is that whoever is releasing these information packets to the news media is doing so in a manner designed to paint parents, and other individuals, who do not agree with the current established vaccination schedule as being responsible for an “epidemic” of a childhood disease which is not that dangerous in an era of modern medical techniques. This is simply not true. And, these “reports” are almost always totally devoid of any information as to the important attributes of the infected, such as age and whether they have been previously vaccinated for measles. In fact, the report on the Israeli flight attendant who contracted measles, inferred that it was all the fault of an unvaccinated traveler. The fact that she had been vaccinated, previously, was passed over at 32,000 feet.

      Now we have governmental jurisdictions essentially imprisoning people who show no signs of having an active case of measles, simply because they have no PROOF that they have been vaccinated. Yet, this country REFUSED to quarantine ACTIVE AIDS patients, a communicable disease with a 100% mortality rate, let alone those SUSPECTED of having the disease. This is the problem with BS scare campaigns like this. Innocent people end up paying a ridiculous price to deal with a totally manufactured, illusory “problem”.

      And, we are talking about less than 1000 reported cases of measles, out of a population of 340 MILLION people. Approximately 91% of the population has been vaccinated against the disease. The vaccine is, at least, 97% effective after 2 doses [at least for 10-15 years]. And, anyone, who so desires, can obtain the vaccine cheaply and easily. It is free, to the indigent and low income people, in every state in the Union. So, you have to ask yourself, what is the agenda here and exactly WHO is pushing it and WHY. This may be more of a media problem than one emanating from within the public health community, though I doubt that. But, the public health community is doing exactly nothing to put the spike in reported measles cases, in the US, into perspective.
