<p>I read a news article about the measles "outbreak." It talked about how there were 5 confirmed cases, and that the students had been sent home for a fews days, and they were all well and back in school.It went on to say that "this is a classic example of what can haapen when people don't immunize." I though to myself, "What? That 5 teenagers get mildly ill and then return to school? Scary stuff..."</p>

<p>Even further, with this measles "outbreak".  There have been 3 different outbreaks that I know of  effecting even several adults.  How did these people get the measles?  Don't the immunizations work?  Isn't that the whole point of immunization?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The other option is that they simply were not immunized, which is their own choice to make.</p>
