Religious obscurantism and disinformation has directly led to NY's biggest Measles outbreak in decades, with hundreds of children infected. Meanwhile, a recently developed vaccine for Ebola has saved the lives of tens of thousands of people at risk and may well stop this epidemic now and in the future!
Of the 94,000 people "vaccinated, only 71 people fell ill with Ebola. Most of those cases (54 of 71) were in high-risk contacts—those thought to be most likely to come down with the virus based on exposure. Moreover, most of them (56 of 71) occurred within 10 days of being immunized, before the vaccine is thought to induce full protection. Only 15 of the nearly 94,000 people vaccinated became ill after that 10-day period, and all of them survived the infection, which usually has a fatality rate of around 50 percent.”
Vaccines save lives and do not EVER cause autism or other developmental issues. The truth matters!
The latest Ebola outbreak is bad—but it would be far worse without this vaccine.
