Minnesota’s Somali Community Hit With Measles Outbreak
We have yet another sign of what junk science has wrought - the spread of measles - a wholly preventable disease if a given population is vaccinated - this time in Minnesota. And Andrew Wakefield rears his ugly mug once again. Eight kids have been hospitalized after getting measles from an underage kid who was infected overseas and returned to Minnesota and spread the disease among those who didn’t get the vaccine or couldn’t due to their age.
The specter of Wakefield’s bogus and fraudulent autism-vaccine link rears its ugly head once again, and yet Wakefield is dispensing his medical quackery to those who will listen.
He is a menace to public health.
