    Oof. I really really don’t get these anti-vaxxers. There’s quite a crowd of them in PDX (and across the river in Vancouver, WA.).

    Now this is scary! Turns out that measles can cause what is called vaccine amnesia which means measles can wipe out any antibodies produced by a disease infection OR vaccination. The body then has no "memory" of the vaccination or an episode of the disease. This "amnesia" is not limited to measles. It can also wipe out indications of flu infection and/or vaccination or other vaccinations.

    " A new study from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health has provided evidence of something epidemiologists have long suspected — that measles may have the potential to nearly wipe out a person’s immune system, leaving them susceptible to other illnesses such as influenza."
