With all these anti-vaxers, we are seeing more and more cases each year.  Some of those infected from Disney had been previously vaccinated.  Medical experts were saying people could have their titers checked, to see if they still have immunity.  It seems if we haven't been vaccinated since we were kids, then chances are it may be worn off.  From my understanding, booster vaccines for measles did not become the norm until the 90's. 

I didn't know Measles is one of the most infectious diseases there is.  It can linger in the air, long after the infected person has left the room.  Being poz, we are told the vaccine is not recommended.  There are those, who believe these vaccine restrictions are being overly cautious, saying as long as you aren't really immune compromised (AIDS), then there should be no issue with live-attenuated vaccines.

Do you guys think the vaccine restrictions are being overly cautious?  Is it backed up by science?

You can see from this CDC doc, that the live vaccines are not recommended if HIV+ ONLY if your CD4 is under 200, otherwise they are recommended, the same as with other healthy adults

I've never seen any HIV/AIDS research that has suggested measels to be any more common for us folks.

Anyway I wouldn't eat weasel before I was HIV+.  I still eat mussels now.  I don't know about measles, I might try them if they are fresh and its a good restaurant.

Jamie Oliver was invited to cook weasel tacos on The View but Jenny McCarthy shut that down cause she heard "measle" not "weasel".  She's a weasel with measles, that one.

long night meech?

i dunno if measles hits us harder or not, i think it could stand to reason. or more common? also don't know, but as i understand it, that shit is mega contagious anyway.

there is this, take from it what you wish
http://europepmc.org/abstract/MED/8548333

i don't get the whole non vaccine movement, idiots if you ask me. i almost think if someone refuses to vaccinate a child, and that child dies from said illness, charges should be filed.

i don't always respect all beliefs. jenny mccarthy may be a fine piece of ass, but she's not the first person i'd take medical advice from
