An Explosive Point-Source Measles Outbreak In A Highly Vaccinated Population|

Here is one of numerous case studies showing the "artificial" inferior immunity offered by vaccination, based on the flawed and false theory that antibody production towards live, live attenuated or dead viruses, along with toxic adjuvants (other items added to vaccines) equates to immunity. This notion is a pre-1940s notion, before it was realised that the "immune system" of the body is extremely complex, more than just the simplified "antibody" mechanism.
As Vitamin C and Vitamin A have been proven and documented to both cure and prevent measles, and are a matter of historical record, measles is and was known to be a mild and harmless illness during the 60s and 70s and parents used to arrange "measles parties" to allow their children to get measles and acquire natural lifetime immunity. In the developed world, serious complications occur at a rate of between 1 in 5000 to 1 in 15000, and these will be in children who are weak and immunosuppressed. These can be successfully treated with high dosage Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
Measles Outbreak in 99.7% Vaccinated Population

In 1985, 69 secondary cases, all in one generation, occurred in an Illinois high school after exposure to a vigorously coughing Index case. The school's 1,873 students had a pre-outbreak vaccination level of 99.7% by school records. The authors studied the mode of transmission and the risk factors for disease in this unusual outbreak. There were no school assemblies and little or no air recircu latlon during the schooldays that exposure occurred. Contact interviews were completed with 58 secondary cases (84%); only 11 secondary cases (19%) of these may have had exposure to the index case in the classrooms, buses, or out of school. With the use of the Reed-Frost epidemic model, only 2265% of the secondary cases were likely to have had at least one person-to-person contact with the index case during class exchanges, suggesting that this mode of transmission alone could not explain this outbreak. A comparison of the first 45 cases and 90 matched controls suggested that cases were less likely than controls to have provider-verifiable school vaccination records (odds ratio (OR) = 8.1) and more likely to have been vaccinated at less than age 12 months (OR = 8.6) or at age 12-14 months (OR = 7.0). Despite high vaccination levels, explosive measles outbreaks may occur in secondary schools due to 1) airborne measles transmission, 2) high contact rates, 3) inaccurate school vaccination records, or 4) Inadequate immunity from vaccinations at younger ages.
