I live in southern U.S. When I took my sick baby into the ER and the Dr. found out he wasn't vaccinated, she said "Good luck.You've heard of all those unvaccinated babies up north dying right? they've been getting really bad cases of the measles and dying from it."she proceeded to tell me that the MMR shot was the one she thought was most important and basically gave me the impression that if my baby dies it's going to be my fault and that Im just playing russian roulette with my child's health. I'm shy and really didn't want to discuss it any longer than I had to so I just nodded. she said she just wanted to give her spiel and then she would leave it alone because its my choice. Anyway, my question is: any idea what she was referring to by unvaccinated babies up north dying from measles? thanks.
