This question came to mind since I just received an article about a "potential" case of measles in my county. I say "potential" because the article doesn't even confirm if the man actually HAS measles. It just says, "A man may have contracted measles." Enough to get the town's panties in a bunch I suppose. They went on to list the actual stores this man who MAY have contacted measles ventured into during the past week.
Anyway, when it comes to measles outbreaks, if you have youngsters at home who aren't vaccinated, would you prefer them to be exposed to the measles virus at a younger age (say between 1 and 4), meaning you would take less precautions during an outbreak, or would you take all precautions during a measles outbreak if they were that age and hope they don't get it until they are older (say 5 and up) if at all?
