(SEATTLE) — Washington state health officials say measles caused the death of a woman from the northwest part of the state in the spring — the first measles death in the U.S. since 2003 and the first in Washington since 1990.

The measles infection was discovered during an autopsy.

Washington State Department of Health spokesman Donn Moyer says the woman was hospitalized in Clallam County for several health conditions before being moved to the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, where she died. He says officials are withholding her age to protect her identity, but she wasn’t elderly.

Officials didn’t say whether the woman was vaccinated, but they did note she had a compromised immune system.

Moyer says the woman likely was exposed to measles at the Clallam County medical facility. Clallam County had an outbreak of five cases this year.


This is exactly why people need to get their shots. People who don't or can't mount an immune response can die.

Oh NO!!!!!

Let's ban Measles!!

Let's get irate and hyped up because 1 person in 330 + Million died in the last 12 years. Let's do this and inject everyone in the nation so that we can save that one person that could have been saved….

Please, make sure you get you and your family inoculated with the requisite boosters so you will never get sick.

Good luck with this thread , the anti vaxxers will be along soon to point out that someone not immunised will die eventually but totally forgetting the risks from vaccine's are much lower .

They beat me to it .

SO woman gets sick from multiple non-disclosed things, goes to hospital where she catches the Measles and dies; and we do not know if she was vaccinated for measles or not (like everyone else in the country is) and we are supposed to panic and get a shot?! How is that anti anything but stupid?

Cool strawman, bro.

The rational alternative is to simply vaccinate enough people to maintain herd immunity and educate people on the science of vaccinations so they don't get suckered into pseudo-scientific conspiracy theories due to their own ignorance.

So everyone is not inoculated for measles already from childhood?

"This is exactly why people need to get their shots". Wow, uninformed, easily led by mainstream news and no impetus to do some real research.

3000 - 4500 people PER YEAR have extremely [not mild] bad reactions to vaccines, resulting in life changing disabilities and death. I think that ONE death from measles isn't really a problem after all.
Also, like many other cases, this woman may have had an underlying condition to make her more likely to die than someone else.
Here is the official site for people to report bad reactions:
vaers.hhs.gov...

What about deaths from car accidents?
92 people a DAY die in car crashes, would you say "This is exactly why we need to get rid of cars????" or are you adamant to keep your gas-guzzler?
en.wikipedia.org...


Have a good read.

This isn't about pro-vax or anti-vax. This is a personal liberty issue and is about our rights to determine what we do with our own bodies. If people don't see the can of worms they open up when they cede the rights to their own body to government on this issue then they don't understand a damn thing about freedom and the right to self-determination. Government will use this as a precedence to force people into all kinds of other procedures in the future. It's what they do.

So are you saying if a modern version of the Spanish flue was to hit you would not get vaccinated , how about polio , smallpox . Yes sure you would take a risk with smallpox .




After vaccination campaigns throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the WHO certified the eradication of smallpox in 1979.[5]


Smallpox , nah vaccines dont work .

VAERS is not a source. One of the side effects listed is that vaccines turn you into the incredible hulk, for goodness sake.

As for cars, not only is your analogy bad but yes, safety protocols ARE mandated. Thanks for making my point.

That is the thing about the measles. It is evolutionary related with the smallpox virus.
We need to eradicate it because of the chance of mutation.
Pity people only want to do things for themselves and not the good for all.

So FIne, you get your vaccination and you will not get sick. I won't get the vaccination and if I get sick, you can tell the world that I was wrong. How could I possibly affect you who had the shot?

Smallpox .





Of all those infected, 20–60 percent — and over 80 percent of infected children — died from the disease

I think you've missed the point.

NO ONE should die from measles in this day and age.

It's that simple.

You really dont get it do you .



Smallpox (430 BC? - 1979):
Killed more than 300 million people worldwide in the 20th century alone, and most of the native inhabitants of the Americas


The next pandemic is just around the corner , but hey put your faith in carrot juice or something .
