I should have known people would already be discussing this!
Well, my main question was the numbers they were throwing around in the article:Of the 245 patients this year, at least 66 percent had had the recommended two-shot vaccination, while 14 percent had received one dose, the Public Health Department said.
"The vaccine is working," Quinlisk said. "The vaccine certainly was made to cover this particular strain, because it's a fairly common strain of mumps." Quinlisk said the vaccine overall is considered about 95 percent effective.
Now that just doesn't make sense! So 80% of the patients had some form of the vaccination? And they are claiming it is working? Sounds like you are much better off without!"He had all the shots and everything. You don't think you're going to get the mumps after you've been inoculated," said Will's father, Wayne Hean.
It's true, that's what they want you to believe. They don't want you to think and research and do the math for yourself!
I had the mumps when I was a kid, I doubt I was vaccinated for it. It really stunk I remember. There is a photo of me in bed, my neck swollen up to the diameter of my head. I was 4, and really mad at my mom for taking it!
in any case, the whole article seemed a bit propaganda-like, especially with it being the "kindergarten roundup" season. (made me sick to my stomach to see that sign on my road last week) There are free vaccination clinics all over the place now so the parents can get their kids registered. Just seems like perfect timing.
