    "The number of confirmed measles cases among Afghan refugees is now 6, with cases in Virginia and Wisconsin. Six cases may sound low however it gives cause for great concern as measles are frighteningly contagious.
    According to the CDC, if a person is infected with measles 90% of the unvaccinated people in close proximity to them will contract the virus. A person is contagious for four days before the rash appears and for four days after it clears, and the virus can live on a surface for up to two hours.
    One of the cases was reported at a Wisconsin army base Fort McCoy on Sept. 5,. According to task force spokesperson Cheryl Phillips, some 8,000 refugees are currently housed at the facility, though only one arrival displayed symptoms.
    Other refugees who had been exposed to the individual have been quarantined and vaccinated for the measles, according to Phillips.
    Three Afghan refugees have been diagnosed with measles in northern Virginia. The Virginia Department of Health has reportedly been in contact with individuals who were potentially exposed to refugees at Dulles International Airport and two hospitals as well."

    Although measles is only fatal 1 in 300,000 cases that’s enough to vaccinate everyone. Measles also has other complications which could cause a person a lifetime of health issues

    I shouldn't have to be vaccinated against measles if you have your vaccine.

    what needs to be known also, is that this strain of measles may be tougher that the measles many of us had as kids.

    whatever vaccines there are today, may not handle this new variant, that has had time to fester/grow resistant to the known vaccines.

    same holds true for Scarlet Fever, TB, Polio, Rebella, and so many other diseases that were wiped up by the past "modern medicines" we had.
