    • Just two shots of MMR vaccine for a lifetime immunity. There is no need to vaccinate “often” for measles. Flu vaccine is the only one requiring annual shots, because of specifics of flu virus mutations, though scientists are working on a once in a lifetime flu vaccine that would target all flu mutations. Please stop spreading idiotic rumors.

      • “Just two shots of MMR vaccine for a lifetime immunity” while adults who received the 2 shots are getting the measles now. How do you explain that? Idiotic rumors? Who’s the idiot?

        • Dear 4:34am, there are no vaccinated adults without immunological diseases who are “getting the measles now”. 99% of the current measles cases are among the unvaccinated. Please stop repeating another idiotic rumor.

          • That’s NOT true. ALL those adults who recently got the measles, were all vaccinated as children. Get your facts straight before posting.

          • That’s NOT true. ALL those adults who recently got the measles, were all vaccinated as children. Some of them I even know. Get your facts straight before posting.

          • Dear 1:05 who repeated oneself at 1:06, bring sources and names. The fact is that 99% of the currently infected were unvaccinated. Bring sources if you claim the fact is different. Otherwise, stop spreading idiotic rumors.

  1. Schools are required to keep updated records on all registered students. Everyone remember the school packet we receive in August-September to be filled out. Any responsible school should have these annual records on file. They include medical immunizations, etc.
