  1. 30 years ago our reaction would have been:
    So, a new kid got the chickenpox/measles! He’ll get a few days off from school. Congratulations!
    Today, the world is over BECAUSE WE HAVE A VACCINE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. חייך קודמים לחיי חברך “Chayecha Kodmim” – your life takes precedence over his life. You’re not obligated to risk YOUR child’s life with vaccination that have proven to have side effects. Period!

  3. This article title is trying to rev up HATE amongst klal yisroel!

    He was vaccinated, why blame the anti’s. Use a different case for your agenda.

    Whether people are right or wrong, its definitely wrong to create machlokes (which kills young & old)

  4. Rubella and varicella are a very serious threat to pregnancies. Symptoms are not necessarily obvious and can be confused with the flu. Please if you have any reason to believe you or your kids were expòosed, stay at home and take the day off, especially if you were not vaccinated, but also if you were.

  5. The article doesn’t actually say that it’s a “confirmed” case. All this hype over someone MAY have measles? You’d think they were talking about the plague.

  6. How do they know it’s from non vaxers? the the facts are that the vaccines cause breakouts and can be 100% confirmed by checking which strand it is like wild polio is from the vaccine. This is exactly what happened in Ukraine.
    These Doctors are spreading fear for the Big Pharama so they can all make more money. The Meraglim also spread fear and the Erev Rav when they convinced the Jews to make an Eigel Zahav. NOTHING good comes from irrational unscientific fear. Where is Hashem in all this? Why aren’t all you vaccinated with the same CDC vaccines you want other to be vaccinated for. Double Standard here.
