  • returned from an international mission attended a service Measles a highly contagious respiratory disease spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing It starts with a fever runny nose cough red eyes and sore throat followed by a rash that spreads all over the body and in some cases diarrhea ear infections or pneumonia It is fatal in one to three of every 1 000 people who contract the virus It was considered eradicated in the U S in 2000 before the measles vaccination program started in 1963 3 million to 4 million Americans annually got the disease but the numbers again have been climbing which experts attribute to the anti vaccination movement In 2014 there were 664 cases reported in the United States the most in 20 years Some of the rhetoric has become fevered with people making the case for suing and even criminally charging anti vaxxers Barbara Loe Fisher president of the National Vaccine Information Center a group in favor of allowing parents voluntary informed consent about medical interventions said the Disneyland outbreak has touched off a media frenzy She suggests the increased cases of measles might bebecause of waning immunity of the vaccine rather than exemptions and calls for the CDC to provide information tracing the cases at Disneyland to unvaccinated children Everyone needs to take a step back and understand what s happening instead of pointing a finger of blame at a very small percentage of people not vaccinating their children said Fisher It s gotten so bad that non vaccinating parents won t speak to the media and are afraid to see pediatricians many have such a my way or the highway attitude In La Porte Bettilyon said she had to switch doctors because her old pediatrician was so opposed to her decision But she said she isn t bothered by the rhetoric against those who share her philosophy and said her kids and vaccinated kids of her friends enjoy play dates together Doctors and vaccine advocates contacted by the Chronicle favor overturning the conscientious objection law But in the short term the strategy appears to be to make it more difficult for parents to obtain exemptions for their child such as requiring a doctor s signature that the parent was counseled about vaccine risks and benefits at his or her office Studies have found such hurdles decrease the number of conscientious objectors Under the Texas law a parent currently must provide the health department information about themselves and request in writing the exemption An affidavit subsequently sent to them must be notarized within 90 days and submitted to the school The Immunization Partnership a Houston based pro vaccine group is working with several legislators to sponsor a bill this session that would require that all schools make available to the public the number of students exempted Currently the Texas department publishes such information about school districts but in most districts parents don t know the difference in numbers from one school to another
