Measles is a potentially fatal disease for children

Here's what you need to know.

"Her response was simply 'that's what they want you to think, '" Lindenberger told NPR. "You did make a bad decision and I'm gonna go fix it'".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this is a long-standing myth due to the fact that several children who die of SIDS occur during the age range that they receive their DTaP shots.

'I was just blown away that you know, the largest health organization in the entire world would be written off with a kind of conspiracy theory-like statement like that'.

Last year, Ethan asked for advice on how to get vaccinated on Reddit.

According to The Daily Mail, Wakefield published a study in 1995 in The Lancet that claimed children vaccinated against MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) were more likely to have autism. Then in 2004, the editor of The Lancet termed Wakefield's research as "fundamentally flawed" and noted that Wakefield had been paid by attorneys who wanted to sue vaccine manufacturers.

At 18, Lindenberger controls the vaccinations he gets and has since been immunized for HPV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B and influenza. For herd immunity to work, 90 to 95% of people need to be vaccinated, and we're seeing the effects of ignoring the science. In Italy, where the current governing coalition had pledged to drop a law banning children without vaccination from starting pre-school (the coalition has since reversed its position), health officials have declared a 'measles emergency, ' as nearly one quarter of all measles cases in Europe in 2017 were reported in Italy.

At the same time, 2018 followed a year in which Europe achieved its highest-ever coverage for the second dose of measles vaccination at the national level, showing that gaps at subnational levels are to blame for the disease's resurfacing.

Infection does not require close contact and measles can survive in close areas, such as a bathroom, for up to two hours after an infected person has left. Since then, widespread use of measles vaccine has led to a greater than 99% reduction in measles cases compared with the pre-vaccine era.
