Measles outbreak in U.S.
Not much is being said about this, and the numbers of people involved are not huge. The U.S. has had a measles vaccine for years, and the disease was largely eradicated in this country. It's back now, and apparently courtesy of people coming into the U.S. from overseas. I saw one article that avowed a vaccinated person brought it back into the U.S. after going to the Philippine Islands. I don't know enough about measles to say whether that is possible or not. What I do know is that if you, or your kids, are not vaccinated it would be a good time to get it done. God does not seem to be doing a very good job of protecting the non vaccinated at the moment, Amish expectations to the contrary.
