confirmed cases of museums across the u.s. at more than 800 cases so far 200-1000 has already broken a 25 year record the department of health will take it upon themselves to make the decision on whether a child should be vaccinated or not that's insane these protesters berkus to change the law that would make it harder for parents to opt out of vaccines for their children to see yourself you would start talking and be afraid to be on social media you have to talk to your church members you have to talk to your neighbors at the heart of this crisis is a fear in the belief that the measles vaccine is dangerous a claim this been repeatedly disproved by the medical community we have overwhelmingly new evidence showing just absolutely no link between vaccines and autism measles is a leading cause of death in children worldwide and multiple countries are currently battling outbreaks the disease was declared a limited in the u.s. in the year 2000 in this episode of fault lines we look at what's behind us return
2:23 pm
now from parent tries to download. anyhow scare information about facts seems overwhelmingly to hold down the vaccine misinformation the 1st thing we have to do is figure out a way to dismantle to empire this was all preventable. and vaccine preventable disease and we shouldn't be saying it this is no longer i got back saying this is a civil rights matter. that. i. was. telling you to understand how washington state ended up with one of the largest museums outbreaks this year look no further than the state house in the capital
2:24 pm
olympia. in late march state lawmakers held a hearing to discuss doing away with an exemption that allows parents to decline the measles vaccine for philosophical reasons. with you. while the vast majority of families in this state choose to vaccinate washington is home to 2 of the least fascinated cities in the country in part because of these exemptions. doors in the capitol opened at 7 am here this morning is already a line down the sidewalk this bird filled up and maybe it really we're told it's 3 overflow rooms at least 800 people all of them opposed to vaccines as far as we can tell you know the uses those who are most a risk to getting missiles or children who are unvaccinated either because of their parents' decision or because they're immuno compromised and can't. the elderly are
2:25 pm
also at risk as are babies. we're too young to get the museum's mumps rubella or m.m.r. vaccine which is typically given in 2 doses starting at 12 months my daughter in law is pregnant and she's concerned about going into public she's concerned about her friends who may bring over children who are an immune it's a real concern for those who are at most risk and that includes those infants the base with more than 70 confirmed cases washington declared a state of emergency in january and mobilized a response that cost more than a $1000000.00 it's because of this work that the outbreak wasn't much worse but it shouldn't take the outbreak of a potentially deadly disease to encourage people to obtain a safe and effective vaccination to protect themselves their families our schools and our community outside the hearing vaccine opponents continue to make their case
2:26 pm
you basically walk in there whining thinking that you're getting this wonderful thing that's going to make your kid healthy and then when the system you know you you feel betrayed yes and that's how i feel i feel betrayed i think many of us are here because we feel betrayed lydia says her son changed after he received his m.m.r. shot 13 years ago he would stop breastfeeding he would not breastfeed anymore he was not interested in looking up at me like he used to before babies don't really make much our contact but still he would like look around will his eyes eyes i'm just staring at one point. and i didn't put the $2.00 and $2.00 together but i knew that something happened to my child and i didn't understand what it was so on day 3 he was screaming day and night screaming bloody murder i would like somebody killing him it was terrible so i started questioning my doctor i said what is in this vaccine did any doctor ever confirm it was from the vaccine told what happened
2:27 pm
to your son. so basically after i took him into the doctor. or they they didn't want to admit that it was from a vaccine no i don't feel like they did they were trying to say that it could be an allergy and i was scared and because of my faith i prayed and that's why i think he's here today and he's normal he's not to stick or anything talking to vaccine opponents for this story it becomes clear that there's a deep well of terrifying but unverifiable anecdotes often found and spread online and now they want to take our medical rights away so they want to tell us what to put on our bodies and there are stories of people getting euthanized that are mentally ill i mean where is the fine line where do you hear stories like that online yeah mostly online or there are like certain sources you go to for emissions so there's like newsletters i'm signed up to get. and also you tube videos. there's a lot of information if you just dig. i don't have time to dig but i have people
2:28 pm
that send me this did you consider vaccinating your 3 year old never never again not for me not for him not for anybody. lydia and her family were living in california when the state time to specs a nation lost so they moved here and there ever washington. now that washington is taking away that in a more philosophical exemption they may be looking for a new home again it's scary for a family like my family i was even talking with my husband and i said well if if these laws are all going to come to play let's go somewhere else you know we don't have to stay in this country even though we love this country i've been here for 30 years but i love my kids more than i love this country. for the outbreak had you ever seen these on here in the united states. is this radical it is or it was it a decade now now that kind of come back and come back with more and more numbers.
2:29 pm
is there causation between the movement to not. children and the return of missiles off the course but as i don't put my son on line that is the strong force especially people who want to know that felicity you know who talk things about i cloud and good things. and a lot of lies just plain light is dr tatiana oda rich runs a family practice in clark county washington the epicenter of the outbreak she believes that vaccinations have been so effective that they've become a victim of their own success people don't see those diseases they don't know how they're look they think it's harmless and the proof of that is some of those missiles. people method to get exciting methody you know 5 times i'm like snakes and they. were do they trust you as
2:30 pm
a doctor not all of them obviously i mean that's an interesting one child just said that's just me. but when a child is healthy they don't. public health officials suspect that the clark county missiles outbreak began after an infected child visited from ukraine where there's also an outbreak. as the disease spread officials launched a massive investigation interviewing more than 4000 people who might have been exposed. and they had been a fide more than 50 exposure sites including schools grocery stores and restaurants this dollar tree store was exposure site that trader joe's that urgent health center that store over there fred meyers was a exposure so. county officials also jumped online since the internet is often where skepticism about vaccines begins. we didn't want to get into social media wars with commenters and going back and forth but we wanted to
2:31 pm
make sure that the really egregious misinformation was countered and that we did answer questions so that people who had legitimate fear concerns or you know had doubts were seeing that we were responding and at least knew that there was another side to this false argument they were hearing. you have up there says there's no studies that link autism to more shot 1st comment no studies course or more except these 30 peer reviewed links to autism. but this is a b. vaccination the stop again it goes back to that kind of pieces of truth and i've seen even some where they would link the things but it would say like the conclusion of the study would be like this was such a small you know population we can't draw any definite conclusions to this more research needs to be done but people wouldn't read that part or wouldn't. we try to
2:32 pm
respond with out without getting sex so the risk the response here is vaccines do not cause autism that misinformation has been thoroughly were purely debunked but if i'm a parent how do i know it's been working out yet where this other guy's given me all these leanne's doctors these studies we have had other posts where we would you know link to vaccine safety information another thing we would run into is commenters repeatedly posting the same thing over and over and over on every single you know they go back for the last 2 weeks and post the same comment over and over and over it can very easily overwhelm. the misinformation that we're seeing on social media is not just about the vaccine it's about musicals itself it is explicitly contagious. if you have measles and you're with a bunch of folks who are so sad. wolf for example not immunized 9 out of 10 of them will get infected it's airborne and can stay in the environment for
2:33 pm
a while there all these symptoms are runny nose cough conjunctive virus which is pinkeye red red eye in fever after a few days you develop a rash on this starts on the head and goes down to the rest of the body it's not a benign disease before we had measles vaccination the united states we had $400.00 or $500.00 deaths every year for measles in the united states. are we so focused on was that 153 people there have missiles yeah right right last in there because it's so so with so little pieces of him but now it's stress or mano or like there's a so many other infection why are we just going to need for this what if the immunocompromised aren't even that deadly for them they would be worried about the comical we're not saying that vaccines are the only cause of autism we've got a lot of talk from from the world that aren't.
