Measles outbreaks spreading


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- New research just released has verified what doctors have been trying to tell parents for years, that vaccinations are not dangerous to their children, and that not getting your child vaccinated puts them at risk.

The CDC blames failure to vaccinate for measles outbreaks in 20-states so far this year, the most in 20-years.

WMU Virologist Karim Essani says combine those who aren’t vaccinated with those who cannot be vaccinated and the disease exploits the opportunity.

Dr. Essani says it’s a dangerous virus that can be fatal and its making a comeback, despite a vaccination that is available and should stop it in its tracks.
