    Ninety-five percent of the children under ten who have caught measles in New Zealand this year have not been vaccinated.
    Measles is life-threatening and can cause complications including permanent hearing loss, brain damage, pneumonia and seizures.
    Why would parents endanger their children (and others)?

    Middlemore Hospital has established a dedicated "measles ward" to deal with the influx of three children admitted each day with the vaccine-preventable illness.

    Wards at Middlemore and Auckland's children's hospitals have been overrun with babies and older kids who are dangerously dehydrated and struggling to drink, fevered, and suffering from pneumonia and chest and ear infections while battling measles.
    This included three babies in the past two months who have been admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit fighting for their lives. Auckland's Starship Hospital has also seen children in intensive care.
    In the current measles outbreak, more than 600 cases have been reported nationwide. Around 40 per cent of those suffering from the highly-contagious disease have been hospitalised.
    I note that the stupid anti-vaccers are not interviewed or asked for comments these days.
    At last the media are shunning anti-vaxxers.

    I think anti-vaxxers should be interviewed.

    Perhaps JBM and PC could comment on the current number of measles patients in Auckland hospitals?

    "Peeni, from the Bay of Plenty, told the Daily Mail her baby fell severely ill shortly after her twin 3-year-old siblings contracted the disease, despite them having been vaccinated."

    Damn anti-vaxxers - don't they read the pharmaceutical marketing brochures - the science is settled!!!
    Oh wait - they were vaccinated... oh dear. Nothing to see, move along.

    It is known that the vaccination isn't 100% - proven science) but the herd immunity reduces the risk substantially.
    Anti-vaxers just have their collective heads in the sand and are a risk to society in general.
    They should be left out of civilised society - shunned for the idiots they are.

    No no the science is settled. Vaccines are all good with absolutely nothing bad about them. Just read the marketing brochure. Do as youíre told and stop using annoying things like facts. When our great leader brings in more communism, anyone who disagrees will be rounded up. Itís only fair.
