Movie Plot from the CDC web site:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Case Example<br><br>
Moira and her husband Allan are vegetarians committed to having a healthy lifestyle. When Moira had her baby, Ariel, she delivered using natural childbirth - she did not want to receive any drugs. When Ariel was 1 year old, Moira decided against the MMR vaccine. She had read about a possible link between the vaccine and the development of autism. Thinking that she could nurse Ariel through a six-day viral infection, she felt that this was the safest alternative for her child. When she was 2 years old, Ariel came down with measles. Ariel's fever did not go down after a couple of days and she was having trouble breathing. Frightened, Moira called her doctor, who advised her to get Ariel to an emergency room as soon as possible. When Ariel is admitted, the doctor diagnosed her with pneumonia as a complication of measles. The doctor explained that had Moira hesitated in bringing her daughter to the hospital, she could have developed brain damage or even died. Ariel recovers and is discharged from the hospital several days later.</td>
