A Measles Epidemic on its Way to Texas?!?


Dr. Peter Hotez of Baylor College of Medicine says it’s highly likely. It could come to Texas just like it did in New York. “People stopped vaccinating their kids in New York City. And there was an epidemic of more than 650 cases. Many went to the hospital and some of them wound up in the ICU!”

“It’s particularly a problem in the Austin and Dallas areas. So --- I’m predicting just a matter of time before we have a terrible measles outbreak.”That's where he says the anti-vaccine lobbies are the strongest. Dr. Hotez also says there's no truth to what this lobby stands for and says. .

“The truth is – vaccinations are the most tested pharmaceutical we know about, particularly the MMR vaccine – measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.” As long as your children are vaccinated they will be fine. But babies under 12 months, who cannot be vaccinated, are at risk when around un-vaccinated children - even at a grocery store or the un-vaccinated friends of the baby’s siblings.
