Students at Fordham University Experiencing Mumps Outbreak Even though They were Vaccinated Against It
WABC in New York is reporting that there is an outbreak of mumps among students at Fordham University. Ten students have been diagnosed with the virus. As you watch the report in this article, you will learn that all those affected had received the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine, as it is required for all students. The reporter makes this statement about the MMR vaccine: "It's important to know that it's (the vaccine) the best we have, but it is not perfect." This is not the first time that the MMR vaccine has been shown to be ineffective. In past outbreaks, however, the unvaccinated were always blamed. Given the 100% vaccination rate at this university, I wonder how they will get away with blaming the unvaccinated this time? The MMR vaccine is also controversial as there are over 28 studies linking it to autism.
