Now the outbreak of measles is occurring all over the world. While the health officials are making an effort to get the hundred per cent vaccinations in the country, some of the orthodox parents in some region are against vaccination. Most of the children are the victims of measles around the world. So the parents of the children are advised to get their children vaccinated. Some communities believe that the MMR vaccine can cause autism in children. Arabella Blume- a mother of three children, thinks that the vaccine is responsible for autism in her son for long years.
The lady living in Michigan blames the vaccine as her son diagnosed with autism after MMR vaccination. The vaccine has various misinformation associated with it. The people of the orthodox community spread false rumours. Those people are partially held responsible for the outbreak in the country. Blume thought that the vaccine hurts her son and causes autism. After long years, her friend explained her about the effectiveness of the MMR vaccine. The misinformation that the MMR vaccine causes autism was spread in the year 1998. A British journal has linked autism with MMR vaccine falsely.
Lastly, the anti-vaccine rumours are proved wrong, but the false information has done the damage already. Many people have taken false information seriously and do not get their children vaccine at the right time. A non-profit organization, Boost has taken the initiative to teach the parents about the effectiveness of the MMR vaccine. According to a Portland paediatrician- Dr Joel Amundson, people should not follow the factors that fear them associated with the MMR vaccine. They should focus on the beneficial factors of the vaccine. They should understand the scientific factors of the vaccine.
After anti-vaccination rumours for MMR, many immunizations been affected by children. In an initiative by Boost, Dr Amundson has explained and answered about many vaccines related questions. The answers are relevant for the parents who are confused about the side effects of the MMR vaccine lately. On the other hand, Dr Joel said, he has a 99% vaccination rate at his clinic. Vaccines prevent mumps, measles, and rubella from spreading. People should consider the fact that without vaccine the rate of measles cases are increasing day by day.
Individuals should not forget that before the invention of the MMR vaccine the death was about 400-500 per year. Before 1963, about 48,000 of people being hospitalized due to measles as there was no vaccination available. Out of 48,000, about thousands of people suffered from brain inflammation that resulted in death. After the outbreak of measles in last year, the parents are opting for vaccination. Whereas, some parents still believe in the rumours that the vaccine can be the cause of autism in children. In the year 2017, about 110,000 people have died, from measles globally. Vaccines are available in every state’s health department; still, people are ignoring the effectiveness of the vaccine. That the cause of a huge outbreak of measles in all over the world.
