I am speechless. How about a drive to get these poor traumatized people decent food and clean water? No, instead they launch a violent assult on their already compromised immune system.

The sad part is that these people actually thing they're helping the situation by giving vaccines to stressed, starved children. :-(

But, on the other hand, if they don't have access to clean water and decent food they are much more susceptible to vax preventable disease.<br><br>
If those kids get measles etc then complications/death are likely.

Yes but they are injecting them with the LIVE measles virus so they are giving stressed under nourished children the measles and expecting them to be strong enough to kill it. There is a reason they give vitamin A in conjunction with the measles vaccine.
