All the diseases that my children were inoculated against, and had been eradicated, are now back. Illegal immigration is directly responsible.
My husband recently came down with chicken pox. Everyone in the family has had the disease. Most kids now are immunized from chicken pox. He evidently caught it from someone in a public place. As an adult the disease can be terrible, but he went to the doctor immediately and was given Valtrex which is used for the STD herpes. This drug shortens the duration and the severity of the disease.
From yesterdays measles outbreak thread:
“The first suspicion might be the outbreak is among immigrants and poorer people. It is not. The outbreak is taking place among the well to do. A child on a flight from Switzerland, another child on a flight to Hawaii, other children shopping at Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods.”
