The vaccine campaign descends…
Well that didn’t take long…. JUST ONE MONTH after we wrote of the third dose of MMR being green-lighted, the college clinics have begun. Not a moment to spare when there are profits to be made~! This despite the fact that 8 of 10 cases tested, came back negative for mumps at UVM.
NOTE: Persons can request a blood test (titer) which may verify immunity (this can be done for measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis, or varicella) rather than indiscriminately vaccinating.
8 of 10 tested were negative http://www.wcax.com/content/news/Most-suspected-mumps-cases-at-UVM-come-back-negative-474190663.html
Parents are reporting their unvaccinated college students are being called by “health services” on VT college campuses.
These students are being told “mumps are at our doorstep”;
They are being told to get a shot (“its perfectly safe”);
They are being told without the shot they will have to leave campus for one month; even after clinical history of having had mumps as a child.
Again, Persons can request a blood test (titer) which may verify immunity (this can be done for measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis, or varicella) rather than indiscriminately vaccinating. Titer testing is actually cheaper than vaccinating!
