This scary but she possibly got if before boarding the flight

This scary but she possibly got if before boarding the flight

And now all flight ✈ in a high risk, they need to check where she was like 4 last days . Possibly she was sick when boarded from TLV to JFK and it’s very irresponsible from ELAl to board sick flight attendants they were supposed to admit her in NY to local hospital.
I don’t think anyone from passengers made her sick in 12 hours flight, she was sick way before!

....and she was vaccinated

How can you blame el al. It is the people who refuse to vaccinate who are at fault here

#3 she might be vaccinated but got it anyway

Yes ElAl can’t board sick crew members! It’s very irresponsible, this girl could have care 12 or more hours earlier and all flight was safe.
Need to know where exactly she became sick…. – means need investigation and all her previous flights in the past days must be notified as well

We absolutely can blame anti-vaccinators for bringing back measles and causing this outbreak. Yes, vaccines are not 100% effective, but people who are not vaccinated are 100% non – immune (unless they’ve already had measles) and will spread measles on a much larger scale.

Bottom Line Vaccinate

Stop the selfish agenda and think of the well being of others , not only anti vaxxers are ignorant but also dangerous , time to come to your senses….

#3, seriously? Do you know that people who get a vaccine are contagious for a few days? Do you know she was fully vaccinated? Do you know that there is an incubation period before a person gets sick? Do you know that more childre. DIE from the vaccine than from the disease? You dont have to believe me. Check it out for yourself on the government’s website which is obligated by law to report adverse reactions to vaccines. Blaming never gets anyone anywhere. Do research. Its out there for everyone to read.

That flight was 8 days ago. The earliest measles symptoms can show up is 7 days after exposure, but usually in the 10-12 range. In any case the first symptoms are nonspecific and mild, a level of complications like she has, while possible (though rare) would have to take at least another 5-7 days to happen. She could not possibly have contracted measles on that flight.

(Another possibility is that she contracted measles much earlier and may have been contagious herself on that flight, but that’s not what’s implied).

That’s like saying if someone was injured in an accident while wearing a seatbelt its fine to not wear a seat belt.

The epidemic is in the Frum community. She did not contract the illness at the night club or library. She contracted it with her exposure to the frum community. That is the likely truth. Her exposure to our community is when she works on the plane. We own this.

Article said she caught on the plane. What are you taking about with your conspiracy theory ignorant mishegas

Have your titres checked!
Guest
Have your titres checked!

Two of my adult sisters-in-law had their titres checked in the wake of the measles case in Crown Heights. Although they were both properly immunised as children, they were no longer immune and needed a booster shot… Have your titres checked and make sure you are still immune, people!

You said everything true that I also thought and wanted to point out. Thank you.

Take a titre test to determine immunity
Guest
Take a titre test to determine immunity

Anyone who is worried about their immunity to measles should take a blood titre test. If they thought they had measles at some point and arent sure and dont want to vaccinate – just take a blood titre test. Also good to determine if the vaccination was effective in providing immunity

To those who know it all. Some info

Thank you,
Guest
Thank you,

I am a bubbie surrounded by unvaxxed kids. Having blood test next week. Our family does not build up immunity to.rubella. I have a respoibility to all women who might be or become pregnant. Non vaxxers are several selfish. Periof
