Unvaccinated students suspended for their own “safety”
12 students from Orange County High School have been suspended from school after being exposed to measles from a fellow classmate. They have been suspended until the end of January in an effort to slow the measles outbreak that originated in Disneyland last December.
Orange County has 16 confirmed cases of the viral infection, six of which are not connected to the Disneyland outbreak.
“It doesn’t worry me that much because I’ve had the vaccination,” a female student said.
Measles is highly contagious and can spread easily through the air.
“Simply being in the same room with someone who has measles is sufficient to become infected,” the Orange County Health Care Agency said in a letter to all parents in the district.
California state laws require children to be vaccinated with the MMR vaccine prior to enrolling in school. Some parents believe the shots are linked to Autism and other medical conditions and have signed medical exemption forms.
There is no proof that being unvaccinated carries any greater risk of catching measles than being vaccinated. There is, in fact, evidence that shows the vaccinations are more dangerous than the disease itself.
According to website thinktwice.com:
The measles vaccine has a long history of causing serious adverse reactions. The pharmaceutical company responsible for producing the measles vaccine publishes an extensive list of ailments known to have occurred following the shot. Severe afflictions affecting nearly every body system — blood, lymphatic, digestive, cardiovascular, immune, nervous, respiratory, and sensory — have been linked to this “preventive” inoculation. These include: encephalitis, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, febrile and afebrile convulsions, seizures, ataxia, ocular palsies, anaphylaxis, angioneurotic edema, bronchial spasms, panniculitis, vasculitis, atypical measles, thrombocytopenia, lymphadenopathy, leukocytosis, pneumonitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, erythema multiforme, urticaria, deafness, otitis media, retinitis, optic neuritis, rash, fever, dizziness, headache, and death (Figure 3).(41)
The manufacturer also warns that the measles vaccine “has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential” and “it is…not known whether [it] can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity.” Thus, “it would be prudent to assume that the vaccine strain of virus is…capable of inducing adverse fetal effects.” Also, “caution should be exercised when…administered to a nursing woman.”(42)
