Outbreaks The last large outbreak of measles in California was associated with Disneyland and occurred from December 2014-April 2015, when at least 131 California residents were infected with measles; the outbreak also infected residents of six other states, Mexico, and Canada. California health officials announced Thursday that 38 people had been infected with measles so far this year, a tally expected to rise in the coming weeks as outbreaks. 2 days ago · From across the country, National Guard contingents and firefighters were answering California’s call for help in battling a historic outbreak of wildfires.

Preventing outbreaks depends on something called “herd immunity,” which requires a 95% vaccination rate for measles. But by 2014, California’s measles’ vaccination rate had fallen below 94. California has 40 confirmed cases, many in Sacramento, Placer, Los Angeles and Santa Clara counties. This map shows those cases by county. Map: Every measles case in California’s 2019 outbreak.

  • 971 is far less than number of kids suffering for life from autism from the MMR vaccine. Japan tested it and banned it. but we wont ever do anything to upset the almighty trillion dollar pharma co’s that control our lives.

  • Does anyone remember “Nostradamus?” Well, RATS spread disease; it is common sense that filth spreads disease. When have and how have we all conveniently forgotten this? Where is the CDC??? I refuse to believe that we are all this stupid!! This has to be deliberate; a two year old know that you have to clean up. We will be suffering from an incurable plague if we do not take action. Goodbye America if no one decides to “wake up!!” WAKE UP; THIS IS NOT A MOVIE!!

  • Although I highly doubt this post will be visible for all to see I am posting this for the misinformed who may get to see it.
    According to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) these quarantined students have already been vaccinated against measles in order to even enroll in a California College.
    This action of quarantine is evidence that vaccines do not work and people are being injected with toxins that do more harm than good:
    MMR (MMR-II)

    Immunization Recommendations and Screening Requirements for California Colleges & Universities with Student Housing
    To help protect students and staff, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) urges all California colleges and universities with campus housing to implement these recommendations at their campus:

  • Not getting the vaccine does not make you get the disease. Keep those borders open with hoards of people pouring in from everywhere, unchecked, and see what this country will be dealing with in the next 10 years. Measles is mild compared to what has come into our country just in the last 6 months. Massive, uncontrolled immigration has many negative affects on any country that allows it.

  • I’m not very sure about it that who started this how it is started who is the blank which states are coming from that how does Happiny especially do you think that history is going to be repeat herself again because this is a new hire number that what happened in a years and repeat us up something new but the most is very important that everyone to do the job the right way to protect for American Kids for the future that the make sure that everyone’s safety and one hundred percent healthy body and make sure that history cannot be repeat us up again by the third time this is very serious about the doctors are not responsibility or someone if it’s a possibility because such as going the balance of the future for America and for American kids because everyone should be responsibility to do their job the right way that is very serious about it and sometimes that is a people are not responsibility that someone could cross the line and then who is responsible for this this is forsaking that the future is for the kids only for the future that I make sure that that what kind of to which of the gold that to America right here and that they have a better life but someone is not doing the right way then it could be so much trouble

  • How is this trending under news at 159 views with 3 hrs in? This is a joke, The whole trending page on youtube has become fake. They put what they want to up and if they do not like your youtube page you will not make it to trending. Prime example PewDiePie has millions of views on every video yet isnotin trending because he is not going along with the democrats. But democrats are not socialist fascist? Give me a break.

  • Not a word about Typhus or typhoid fever hitting the country.

  • Anti-Anti-Vaxxers are the modern day climate change deniers.

    This vaccine issue is not going to go away until we face the side effects of vaccines in  a rational way. Until we can speak openly about vaccines, pros AND cons, some people are going to reject ALL vaccines out of fear because they know they are being lied to and manipulated. Honesty and objectivity are required to solve this problem.

    Much of the anti-vax movement is mostly fear brought on by a lack of knowledge. What needs to happen is a candid discussion about the pros and cons of vaccines. There are side effects, this is a fact. There are also serious diseases that vaccines are extraordinarily effective at controlling. Most people have the conversation from the extremes of ignorance, which helps nothing. Anyone who says vaccines have no side effects is as ignorant as someone who refuses all vaccines blindly. The reality is vaccination should be weighed in balance on a per person basis. Many of the side effects are being linked to genetics or environmental factors. There are procedures we can use to mitigate risk.

  • And so you guys are now testing out FEMA Camps and seeing if you can get away with re-education camps. Get ready people its coming, Full Scale Tyrani The measles have never been deadly, it was a common childhood illness, if you are not old enough to have had them as a kid, ask your parents and grandparents. This is dangerous, this is tyrannical, this is illegal, this is a human rights violation, this goes against our constitutional rights, and the Patient Bill of Rights which states that you cannot force a medical procedure or medication on another person the operative word is force.

  • Oh my gosh! Someone may get measles, think of the horror. I saw someone sneeze today, I was tempted to call the police. How can the gov. let people sneeze and cough in public, just imagine if they didn’t lock up; I mean “quarantine” those people. You have a better chance of dying from chewing gum than from the measles. Just more propaganda no doubt!

  • All the illegals that have never been vaccinated garbage people crapping on the sidewalk disease we haven’t seen in 50 years coming with all that.

  • Maybe they should quarantine people who get the MMR and other live virus vaccines since they can spread the live virus. Ever think of that?

  • Sad; the hit to the economy with workplaces quarantined next, if only it could have been preventable but it was to easy, 1st world problems.

  • That dumb governor, government of this already irrational political nasty state caused this by allowing these people to decide vaccines on their term’s, Now they have a real mess on their hands. I feel sorry for the innocent vaccinated ones who’s stuck living among those germs.

  • Not antivaccine but we need safe vaccines where manufacturers are held accountable and studies of Adjuvants have been legitimately done

  • Lucky them! I will gladly fly myself and children out to get the measles, stay in quarantine and then come home FAR better than taking the risk of all that is in the vax that damaged me

  • It is official religious fundamentalism and pseudoscience have become a public health risk. The only we need to vaccinate people and have them have proof of it to attend public universities or any public forum. We need to vaccinate their minds by giving them a series of books on biomedicine and a full-time subscription to the journal biology. stupidity is a cancer upon the mind and it’s begin to spread to the organs of our society.

  • Maybe if we quit bringing in hundreds of thousands of diseased third world peasants, stuff like this wouldn’t happen. But oh no, it’s those dam anti vaxers

  • I would have no problem with the anti-vaxers…as long as the ignorant were the only ones affected. Unfortunately, that’s not the case…

  • Failing to fully Vaccinate kids is Child Abuse.
    Science doesn’t care what you believe and neither do microorganisms.
    Only Science matters.

  • illegals immigrants crossing the border with all those children what do you expect. Drop them off by Obama’s house in IL and the rest of sanctuary cities.

  • 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

  • Be careful what you wish for they let in thousands of people riddled with disease from around the world and especially from the south riddled with diseases even leprosy just realize that leprosy is in this country now maybe Nancy Pelosi can catch it she would look even better Maxine Waters can get it too that would be an improvemet but now they go after these little communities that haven’t given their kids vaccinations it’s a shame they blame them and they don’t want to admit where it’s really coming from I really hope these people get it and their families and maybe they’ll understand that this problem is bigger than you think.

  • Problem, Reaction, Solution. This melodrama is about doubling down again, because once they lose the narrative, which would happen overnight if the truth were known, this house of cards crumbles, setting back genetic engineering through weaponized medicine back potentially for good.

  • Why is this news!!!
    What’s wrong with people in this country?
    BTW, I got vaccinated against measles and I got measles as a child like every other child in my school.
    I’m sorry to tell you people.
    Non of the kids have survived including myself.

  • Undocumented people is there now call is I still call them in which they are illegal aliens bringing this in I mention no race for fear of reprisal being called a racist and I mean no race in particular

  • I feel sorry for the student that went to class and ended up infecting the other students. I don’t know if schools are flexible enough to accept “sickness” as an excuse; I feel most teachers are callous enough to just fail a student regardless of reason, even if it is lethal. I mean, no student wants to retake a course so it is understandable why the poor student forced himself to attend class.

  • Its only measles it was once considered a normal childhood disease you get it its uncomfortable for a few days and you move on never have to worry about it again. Why is it so deadly and frightening now? Is it the vaccines they know they are useless and they can force you to have it and some lousy government medical insurance can make billions.

  • Good thing the illegal immigrants are bringing these diseases to the US. Nothing like undocumented people with measles, TB and more HIV.

  • Thank you Congress. Your complete and utter refusal to do your job in helping the president with the border crisis has now even more put our country at risk for bringing in a disease that we had all but eradicated. Measles is no small matter especially so with infants too young to be vaccinated, to pregnant women and our elderly. Further proof of the total lack of respect you show to our country and it’s citizens.

  • End massive third world immigration, that’s the source and it’s not just measles. Besides if vaccinations work then why worry if you had one? It’s my body my choice!

  • Many parents are not educated with an understanding what a vaccine is, and how it works. They are causing most of this issue. The vaccine was proven to work many years ago with no issues. Should be a law to get all vaccines for children or they are not allowed to attend any schools public or private. The spreading of disease is a barbaric response to these uneducated parents.


  • Europeans… That’s where it’s coming from…. These people are Always spreading diabolical diseases…. Which all Melanated people needs to stay far away from them….

  • Does anyone think this a bs coincidence that people don’t want to vaccinate their kids and all of a sudden measles outbreaks are happening all over? But measles was supposedly eradicated in 2000!

  • Rahm Emanuel was right to hope and say, “never let a serious
    crisis go the waste”, in view of the current measles outbreak, the lessons learned
    can be put to good use when a more dangerous malady confronts us…

  • You fools are vaccinating and killing your children that’s autism was non-existent until vaccines in 1980s 70s autism was nothing go learn something

  • Around 20% of them were fully vaccinated. They mixed together the non vaccinated with the vaccinated for the other about 80%.
    Why did those 20% get it anyways. Shouldn’t the vaccine protect them? The vaccine obviously didn’t work, and they would have gotten the disease if 100% of the people were vaccinated.

  • Well, now if one were to suggest that keeping Jews in Ghettos to keep measles from the rest of the country, that would trigger a bunch of folks.
    However, the USA has sieves for borders, so anyone can come in with any disease, or multiple ones and not read English thereby allowing them to escape public health efforts.
    I’m guessing is that there is no vaccination for stupidity.

  • They were told about it but they came up with stupid excuses like,
    1. I don’t believe the facts.
    2.That it is my body and my privacy yet they continue to ignore the obvious issue that they can still infect others and it is a public health issue.

  • The doctor in this report says that the measles outbreak is due to unvaccinated people traveling outside the country and bringing it back. I have no reason to dispute that but allow me to suggest that it also doesn’t help if we have hundreds of thousands of undocumented people crossing the border every year. Who knows what diseases they’re bringing. Without proper screening, there’s no way of knowing.

  • Wrong…a more recent news report on npr said most of the sick with Measles actually were vaccinated as the number of infected has grown since this story…but hey…big Pharma needs more money and fear-mongering…

  • By pure coincidence: yesterday, I got Re-vaccinated with the MMR through my work insurance. It was free, I actually thought it was pointless at first but now, I am so happy about it

  • It’s a joke I was just watching Headline News and is a doctor on there talkin about the measle outbreak is because of people who didn’t get the vaccine throughout the country it’s almost laughable they don’t even mention thousands and thousands of illegal aliens that climbed over that border in the last year we really are a country of fools are kids are going to start dying because these people from south South America that couldn’t give a damn if they transmit disease to our children just so they can get over here and get a welfare check I swear if there’s one on the side of the road dying I’m going to keep driving by that what they would do to youwake up America better know who your friends are certainly not coming through that border.

  • It’s Earthworm Sally Carrying Diseases From Florida To Cali Florida To Cali From Florida To Cali.. Earthworm Sally Flying Through The Air I’m A Earthworm But I Dont Really Care I’m A Barber I’ll Do Your Hair AHHHHHHHH

  • If I get the flu vaccine it feels like I’ve been hit in the shoulder with a sledgehammer. And for three weeks on violently ill. Keep in mind I’ve had the flu once in my life. And I know I’m not the only one who gets sick from annual vaccines. The general consensus is that if it’s better for all of us it’s okay if your child dies or you feel like you’ve been in a car accident after a vaccination.

  • Immigrants coming to this country look it up India has the second largest case of measles on the planet Madagascar is first all the Indian students coming into this country are they vaccinated going to colleges do a little cross reference you’ll see it and illegals coming into this country you know darn well they’re not vaccinated

  • Why did the roughly 20% that had full vaccines get the disease? Did the vaccine work if they got it anyways? How will it stop the spread if 20% get it anyways. That is not even 99% effective.

  • until these devils take aluminum, thimerosal( mercury) and vs-80 out of vaccines, i nor any of my family members will ever be injected with their poisons. many of our generations have remained healthy in our family WITHOUT the poisons. 20 plus years and counting. if ur worried about the measles release, then U, U go get the shot. whoever else doesn’t get it has no bearing on you since your protected,right?

  • LOL the younger generation are such an easy mark for the
    News!! LOL remember when the Bradys got the measles??!!

  • News should cover the fact that immigrants are the cause. We destroyed this virus. Democrats should personally pay for this problem not to be paid for with taxpayer money. Vacinations are not the issue….it is the virus reintroduced to the USA.
    Democrats actions very dangerous to the USA,

  • How many deaths out of those 971 cases? Do we know why the measles exists? Have we done any studies on the immune systems of those that have had it and those that have not had it? I am in the middle of this debate because of two things: Desire and Ambition, which are the causes of human suffering. If we lived in a reality where those did not exist then I would be on the pro vaccine side of the debate. I am not antivax, I am just a skeptic who realizes the infinite amount of variables that must be considered before enforcing things upon others.

  • Fruit and Nut West Coast parents ignoring their parental responsibility rearing children…! You don’t want to vaccinate your children, fine… But NO ONE gains admission to ANY public supported institution of Elementary, Secondary, or Collegiate education without substantiated documentation of vaccination… PERIOD…!

  • Those orthodox idiots and their we don’t believe in modern medicine BS. It might extreme but they need to TEMPORARILY round all of them up, put into an interment camp and forcibly vaccinate every last one of those fools

  • Yah I wonder why with Thousands and Thousands of ILLEGALS going to California the sanctuary state, THERE ILLEGAL bringing lots of different diseases.stop lying with people going out of the country NO Illegals from all over ate breaking into AMERICA.

  • Thanks anti-vaxxers. Way to undo decades of scientific research and successful population inoculation.�� Put a feather in your little diseased caps.

  • Measles is a childhood disease You get over it It’s not worth all of this attention.
    How many people do you hear dying from measles.

  • It has nothing to do with vaccines in the US… it’s the illegals coming here from South America. Disease doesn’t just spring up in a country that has had no cases of measles for 20 years. CBS is lying to you to further the vaccine narrative.

  • Why do they need medical records to prove their immunity, when this particular student had the mmr? There is a titer test that would tell you right away. Also, measles aren’t itchy. That’s chicken pox.

  • This is all thanks to parents more concerned about Autism than Measles. In my humble opinion, you don’t deserve to be a parent if you’re more worried about a disability than a disease.

  • Anyone remember the yellow international vaccination certificates? Anyone entering or leaving this country should have one showing they have been protected.

  • i don’t want my BABIES……to get mercury autism………from an injection……..SORRY…..your kids can all swell up in the head…from encephalitis and die……!!!
