Parents of unvaccinated children are being encouraged not to take them in or out of Auckland as authorities try to prevent the measles outbreak from spreading any further.
It comes as more than a thousand students at South Auckland schools are being kept at home to prevent further risk of contamination. Children at one school were being asked to stay away from a nationwide sports tournament next week for the same reason.
The Ministry of Health is warning people travelling to Auckland to make sure they are vaccinated. It says parents should make sure infants aged 12 to 14 months have their jabs at least two weeks before visiting Auckland – even though the vaccine is usually given at 15 months.
So I’m guessing that the current hellscape of the measles epidemic that is plaguing NZ is the glorious future of tomorrow anti-vaxxers wish for?
Locusts and frogs falling from the sky?
Do anti-vaxxers think an eclipse is the moon dragon eating the Sun God?
