This invasion of our private lives

And coercion of ordinary people to take dangerous, poisonous chemicals into their bodies and expose their children to injury is disgraceful.

Its not your private life unless you are isolated. If you live with pple its like drilling a hole on your side of the boat. Stay home if you don’t want to get the vaccine.

What’s private about an infant getting sick from another persons lack of action? This is misinformation that is causing people to get hurt. The Rabanaim of Crown Heights must step in before this gets out of hand and Chas V’Sholom …

If you don’t want to vaccinate, don’t. (Good luck to your kids)
Just keep your kids away from our kids.

Sometimes, something that seems bad is good.
Like many things, we need to see the greater picture. So maybe vaccines have not good stuff in it but its for a greater benefit.

If this wasn't so sad, it would be laughable

How do you explain BILLIONS of people getting vaccinated and living long healthy lives?

healthy? Our country vaccinates the most, yet has the most autism and autoimmune illness.

No, it doesn't.

There is enough evidence to show what will happen if you don’t vaccinate. You anti vaxxers should be in jail! Any reputable dr will tell you that you are wrong.

You don't have to vaccinate all of your kids!

Measles vaccine is given at 12 months old. This baby was too young to receive the first shot. Hope the siblings were vaccinated.

first case of measles was vaccinated perhaps this one also.
God should protect all the babies that are getting all these chemicals!

take good care
Guest
take good care

hope the people that dont want chemicals into their body, also don’t use their cellphone, especially near the kids, because those waves aren’t healthy either

Obviously not vaccinated
Guest
Obviously not vaccinated

The baby’s age answers this assumption. Babies cannot be vaccinated until 12 months. This is why herd immunity is so important – to protect those who cannot be vaccinated, whether due to age, or a previous reaction to a vaccine, or to an immuno-compromised state.

Uneducated.
Guest
Uneducated.

no the child and siblings are not vaccinated. When will you wake up! Hopefully before your child gets sick. Chas v Shalom. Meanwhile keep your child at home with the other poor kids missing the end of school

I agree same with someone allergic to nuts … just because they are allergic doesn’t mean we should all suffer and not be able to eat this healthy food near them … so what if something happens to them it’s all for the health

Facts

Facts

The facts are that 92% of people will develop immunity after 1 dose. 97% of people will develop immunity after 2 doses. If pretty much everyone gets the vaccine then those 3% and the people who are medically unable to get the vaccine due to immune system issues or because they are too young to get it will be OK. If not then there are outbreaks. The fact that 3% fail to respond is a medical fact. No drug- NONE- is 100% effective for all people all the time. So if a vaccinated person got the measles this is no… Read more »

It’s called herd immunity
Guest
It’s called herd immunity

It’s called herd immunity for a reason. Google it. And as pointed out it other comments above, infants are immunized as per these guidelines:
CDC recommends that children get one dose at each of the following ages:
12 through 15 months
4 through 6 years

The vaccinated can shed measles live virus without showing symptoms
Serological evidence indicates that measles virus (MV) could circulate in seropositive, fully protected populations. Among individuals fully protected against disease, those prone to asymptomatic secondary immune response are the most likely to support subclinical MV transmission.

Not how it works
Guest
Not how it works

But it doesn’t. Breakouts of measles don’t occur in fully vaccinated populations. They occur when some of the population doesn’t vaccinate and introduces the measles virus to the population by way of an infected host. Not through a person getting the vaccine and shedding the virus.

Luxembourg is not in Germany
Guest
Luxembourg is not in Germany

So your alleged source is falsified right off the bat. I feel no need to even bother looking your alleged quote up, since you got such a basic fact wrong.

Refua Shleima to this poor baby and his family.
Pls update the whole community, we all soon will come to Shuls with newborns and other babies for very long weekend . Maybe any preventative measures can be taken like first signs of measles so all who feel sick must stay home …
thank you

STOP BLAMING
Guest
STOP BLAMING

As per the CDC vaccines shed….
This baby has siblings ages 2 and 3.5
Both, if received vaccines would have been shedding
The children in school with this baby were shedding
from all the vaccines that have been injected in the past few months
because of the “outbreak”
Stop blaming!
Live and let live!
Be happy with yourself and smile to your neighbor!
Get ready to receive the Torah!!!

Not true

People who are vaccinated do not shed viruses and are permitted to enter even an ICU.

Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease
Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.

go check with a doctor. you dont have a degree.

go check with a doctor. you dont have a degree.

Ask dr. Eli Rosen and tell him to explain to you what this foundation is. You don’t have a degree in medicine.

Thank you

Thank you

Finally, someone with a brain and a little bit of education speaks up.

Illogical
Guest
Illogical

Based on this logic there would be terrible outbreaks of measles every time a child got the vaccine. Please use your seichel. People who are infected with measles spread the virus, the vaccine does not.

In the world of education, these people are charlatans! Without any evidence that is science based, they make preposterous claims. So it’s up to you to choose what to believe – you can believe a nutritionist who says she can cure any disease, without any evidence that she’s done so; or you can believe the science of medicine that has undergone lots and lots and lots of proof. In other words, you can be an uneducated believer, or you can actually educate yourself!

Really?

Really?

You clearly do not know how vaccines and viral outbreaks work.

According to the CDC the recommended time for children to receive their first dose of MMR vaccine is between 12-15 months with the second dose being 2-4 years old and subsequently every 10 years. In this case the child wasn’t of recommended age to receive the vaccine and this may have been spread from siblings or neighbors. There are cases where one MAY POSSIBLY BE UNABLE to receive the MMR vaccine such as certain immune disorders, recently sick, allergic to eggs, gelatin, or certain antibiotics, or bleeding disorders. Complications of Measles can include hearing loss, pneumonia, and encephalitis which is… Read more »

There is no link between vaccines and autism. Where are you getting your information? An anonymous blog? The anti-vaxxers who haven’t finished high school know better than thousands of researchers, epidemiologists, scientists etc? Do you know there are hundreds of thousands of people in the world who believe the world is flat, and all the photos of the world from outer space are all fake. But they are not hurting anyone with their shtus.

If this is not a wake call. I don’t know what is. Parents. Are you taking a chance with YOUR child’s life. Principals, Do not let any unvaccinated children into school. Let these parents keep
their kids home. This only works if it is every school Stop waiting for some one else to step up.Keep our kids and staff safe!

It’s these small schools that are super chasidish that allow these “religious exemptions” in their schools. The chickens are come back to roost.

From whom does the family think the infant caught the measles? And are the cases in Sunset Park a result of immigrant household helpers catching from the Jewish families who were their employers? Or perhaps the other way around: Jewish families being infected by illegal alien workers in their homes? I am asking b/c there was a child in my family, several years ago, who was sent home from overnight camp with “chicken pox.” This child had already had chicken pox when he was younger. Come to find out, eventually, that the child did not have chicken pox this time.… Read more »

measles is not life-threatening the cases that have caused death have had underlying health issues. Lets put everything into perspective here, there is absolute hysteria over this.Let parents decide what they pump into their kids bodies.America has the highest rate of autism/adhd and alspo give the most vaccines has noone joined up the dots here????!
