A very public health struggle in the northeast has health officials sounding the alarm on a possible flaw with older measles vaccines.

In Rockland County, New York, not far from the hustle and bustle of The Big Apple, a massive measles outbreak in underway.  The situation has become so dire that local authorities have banned unvaccinated children from being in public places…including their own schools.

Amid this renewed concern over a disease that had been previously eradicated in the United States has national health officials concerned that Americans who received a measles vaccine before 1989 could be due for a refresher.

Nowadays, children get two doses of the combination measles, mumps, and rubella, or MMR, vaccine starting at the age of one. But as recently as the 1980s, people in the U.S. and elsewhere were only given one shot. It was only in 1989, following a series of outbreaks, that public health experts in the U.S. endorsed a two-dose MMR schedule. The MMR vaccine, like so many, isn’t perfectly effective against measles even with two shots (97 percent effective), but it’s still better than one shot (93 effective).

The Center for Disease Control has outlined several specific years as well.

That doesn’t necessarily mean everyone born before 1989 should immediately rush out and get vaccinated with MMR again. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention only recommends, for instance, that people who were vaccinated between 1963 to 1967 with a killed virus vaccine get a shot of the current MMR vaccine, since that older version wasn’t very effective. The CDC also recommends that adults who are somehow still unvaccinated get at least one shot’s worth of protection.

Measles vaccines tend to lose their protective power after several years doctors have warned, adding another layer of worry as these epidemic outbreaks continue to spawn worldwide.

Biden Policies Keep Migrant Kids Away From Parents ‘For Weeks,’ In ‘Facilities Akin to Jail’

How come nobody on the Left seems to care, though!?

Donald Trump was roasted by Hollywood elites and the mainstream media for his treatment of migrant children at the border. Biden has done absolutely nothing different, yet for some reason there isn’t 24/7 coverage. This is why nobody can trust the MSM. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly putting migrant children in detention facilities that resemble prisons and is separating the children for weeks on end—both issues that Democrats and the media used to attack former President Donald Trump during Trump’s presidency. “The number of unaccompanied migrant children detained along the southern border has tripled in the last two weeks to more than 3,250, filling facilities akin to jails as the Biden administration struggles to find room for them in shelters,” The New York Times reported. “The children are being held in facilities, managed by the Customs and Border Protection agency, that were built for adults. The border agency has been the subject of widespread criticism for the horrific conditions in its federal detention facilities, in which children are exposed to disease, hunger and overcrowding.” […] USA Today reported over the weekend that Biden was “still sheltering children separated from close family members in federal facilities for weeks on end – something immigrant advocates and attorneys had hoped the new administration would resolve by now.” The report noted in its headline that children were being “being separated from relatives for weeks” under Biden. https://twitter.com/benshapiro/status/1369082740805689344 And here’s some random news from Twitter… https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1369033404612771843 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1369079628950867972 https://twitter.com/EtanSmallman/status/1368832580842315778 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1369050996039680000 https://twitter.com/trscoop/status/1369000999994724353

Officers knocked on their door. And knocked. And knocked. For anywhere between 30 and 90 seconds, they knocked. When the cops entered the apartment, Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend opened fire. An officer was injured. Could’ve died, even. But it’s all about “white privilege,” right!? From The Hill: A judge on Monday ruled that charges against Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, for shooting a Louisville, Ky., police officer would be permanently dropped. Jefferson Circuit Judge Olu Stevens declared that the charges against Walker would be dismissed with prejudice preventing him from being charged with the March 13 incident that resulted in his girlfriend’s death, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Walker had fired a single shot at police, striking Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in the leg, as three plainclothes officers executed a search warrant in Taylor’s apartment. He was charged with assault and attempted murder of a police officer. Walker posted this on Instagram… View this post on Instagram A post shared by Kenneth Walker (@k.walker_502) Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
