What are you saying, Rachel? I am little confused as to what your point is….


I agree maternal antibodies do not last til 5, but they do give the baby some protection under age 1 (assuming the mother is unvaxxed).


Likewise, it seems most people did get the measles under age 10 in the prevaccine era, and that might have been the best (safest) time to get the measles.

My point is exactly what I said. Maternal antibodies don't last until five.

I actually didn't say that naturally derived maternal antibodies last until five, however, I don't think they suddenly go poof at 12 months. If they did, then the disease, pre-vaccine, would have predominantly been seen in infants and toddlers, and this just wasn't the case. Until now when vaccine induced maternal antibodies no longer provide protection for the very young - as evidenced by the incidence figures I posted above. Unless, of course you don't believe those either.
