Measles cases found after Super Bowl festivities

Indiana state officials say they have confirmed two cases of measles and two probable cases of the highly infectious disease.

Last Friday, one of the confirmed patients from Hamilton County, Indiana, visited a free outdoor festival called the Super Bowl Village, a three-block area of downtown Indianapolis which was turned into an open area for games, concerts and activities.

The patient did not go inside the Indiana Convention Center where there were more NFL-related activities taking place.

Measles is a respiratory disease which is very contagious.  It spreads through sneezes, coughs and droplets in the air.  Symptoms of measles include fever, cough, runny nose and a rash all over the body. Infection can be prevented if you are vaccinated. 

About 200,000 people visited the Super Bowl Village on Friday, according to CNN affiliate WISH-TV.  The patient felt sick after leaving the Superbowl Village and went to see a doctor, the state’s health commissioner Dr. Gregory Larkin told the station.  

Larkin said that the doctor was suspicious of the symptoms and took a blood test, which confirmed the measles diagnosis. Larkin also said the fact that the patient never went to the indoor Superbowl activities is a good thing: "When you're outdoors with the wind blowing and so forth, it's a less contagious atmosphere."

The health departments in New York and Massachusetts have also been notified to make fans who traveled to the game to be aware of possible risks.

The use of the measles vaccine had nearly eliminated the disease in the United States. However, there has been a resurgence of measles recently as some parents have decided not to vaccinate their children.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one or two out of  1,000 children with measles will die, and worldwide 200,000 people die each year from the disease. 

Measles hit a 15-year high in 2011 in the United States, according to the to the CDC. There were 220 cases last year, compared with the average 60 to 70 cases per year. The CDC found that 87% of the people infected didn't get the vaccine, while the other 13% were too young to get it.

      I would not wish this on any child, no matter how stupid their parents are. My mother's sister died of the measles when she was 3, before there were vaccines for it. The disease causes weakness in the immune system, which causes deafness, blindness, and other illnesses; technically, my aunt died of a meningitis infection.

      The sad reality is that vaccines do not work on everyone, do not prevent the disease without booster shots at about 5 year intervals forever, but they're very good at delaying the disease, which can be MUCH worse when one is older.

      Tell me, when you are related to someone who suffers from significant mental retardation and a paper published in a respected medical journal linked altruism to the shots, wouldn't you hesitate to have your child given the shot as well? Don't be judging the parents who made that decision at the time of the paper's publishing. Yes over the years the link has been proven to be untrue, but AT THE TIME it seemed very significant.

      Katie: While at one time it was thought that children with egg allergies shouldn't get the MMR vaccines, newer research indicates that children with egg allergies can safely be immunized for MMR.

      Monah, the standard MMR vaccine is not necessarily safe for children allergic to eggs. It depends on the age of the child and severity of the allergy. But there are alternatives – although insurance may not cover them.

    I have a 6-month-old son. Children don't get vaccinated for measles until around their first birthday. If he got measles or mumps from an outbreak caused by some parents who– despite every shred of medical reasoning and logic– are opposed to vaccination... I just don't even know what I would do.

      You might want to stock up on food, beverage, and dry good supplies for a few months; if the outbreak spreads, you won't want to go outside your own yard with your baby. Best wishes to your family.
      And to those who haven't vaccinated their children who are old enough to be vaccinated, you will kill other children.

      Schools were once the first line of defense in vaccination compliance; you weren't allowed to attend if you couldn't prove you had been vaccinated, with an extremely small handful of exceptions granted for religious reasons. Compliance rates were very high – on the order of 99.9%.

      Now, we're seeing record-breaking numbers of completely preventable and potentially deadly diseases because people would rather take the word of a trailer-trash pole dancer pumped full of silicone than a doctor or scientist, and vaccination rates have dropped into the 80% range. We'll pay a heavy price, and soon, if mandatory vaccinations aren't enforced.

      Parents who rely on vaccines to keep their children safe are just as foolish as parents who think all vaccines are dangerous.
      Vaccines MAY be UP TO 100% effective for UP TO ten years in 80% of those vaccinated. That means 20% of those vaccinated do not become immune to the disease – the vaccine doesn't work for them. The medical community tries to get around this by insisting everyone s vaccinated – what they call 'herd' mentality. For the other 80%, the vaccines MAY be 100% effective or they may be only 50% effective. That immunity MAY last for ten years, but it MAY only last for one year. The medical community gets around this by insisting on booster shots, depending on the vaccine, about every five to seven years. The diseases are NOT eliminated, and may even be hosted somewhere long enough to mutate into something the vaccines one day won't kill. Vaccines are NOT the savior of modern medicine. There are plenty of statistics to show how they have merely delayed the onset of childhood diseases.

      I'm not saying you should never be vaccinated, I'm saying you should understand the truth about vaccinations and stop believing they are some miracle. They aren't, and they DO come with side effects, and there is beginning to be concern among the medical community that too many vaccines given in too short a time span are causing auto-iimmune disorders like diabetes because a developing immune system is completely overwhelmed with antibodies.

      Do your children a favor: keep them home when they are babies. Wash your hands, and cover your coughs and sneezes.

      @Katie – they don't call it "herd mentality", they call it the proper term, which is "herd immunity".

      Herd immunity is not something used to "get around" anything. It's an actual fact-based, measurable, effective, and intended phenomenon that happens when enough people are vaccinated that a virus cannot spread. It's the reason measles cases dropped to less than 100 per year in this country in the past few decades, vs. hundreds of thousands of cases in the early 20th century before vaccines. If the vaccine is so ineffective, how do you suppose that was achieved?

      Also, vaccines don't kill anything, and they don't eliminate diseases themselves, that's true. They're not supposed to. That's not how they work. They provoke your immune system to respond appropriately to the virus if you are exposed so that the disease cannot infect you. Virusus without a host (a person) to infect and allow replication eventually then die out. That's exactly what has happened with smallpox.

      And vaccines don't cause mutation of viruses. You're confusing that with antibiotics.

      Without any understanding of basic science or medicine yourself, it sounds like you've read just enough pseudo-medical propaganda from anti-vaccine advocates to repeat it back, but not to understand how fundamentally, laughably wrong or out of context the information is. Please educate yourself – you're being played for a fool by those people.

      Katie: You are the perfect example of how a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. You posts are laced with enough approximations of the truth that they sound believable, but enough inaccuracies to be dangerous. I would suggest that you either take the time to learn the facts, or leave the science to those that actually understand it. Your middle ground, of learning just enough to be able to make legitimate-sounding, but factually incorrect statements is extremely harmful.

      A few examples - it is not the "herd mentality," it is herd immunity, and this is not the medical community "getting around" anything, it is a simple, well-understood, mathematically verifiable phenomenon. As a simple example, imagine that the average person with measles will come in close enough contact to transmit the disease with 5 people during his/her infectious window. In an unvaccinated population, that means that 1 infected person will infect five people, each of whom will infect 5 more (making 25 new cases), and so on. With each passage, you will go from 1 to 5 to 25 to 125 to 625 cases; this is how an outbreak rapidly spreads. However, if 90% of the population is immune, then of the five people that an infected person comes in contact with, likely at most one will get the disease. Therefore, the disease can never exponentially take off, and the outbreak will quickly die out. In short, you don't need everyone to be immune, you just need enough to limit the disease's ability to spread.

      As for your nonsense about not vaccines not eliminating diseases, this is obviously untrue. Smallpox has been completely eliminated. Polio has been eliminated from the developed world (and looked likely to be eliminated worldwide until rumors began to spread that vaccines were being intentionally contaminated, leading to a drop in vaccine usage). With high enough vaccination rates, many other diseases could be eliminated. (The exception is diseases that have an animal reservoir, which are much harder to eliminate, but vaccines can at least suppress.)

      In another post point out that the live polio vaccine (no longer given in the US) can actually cause disease. This is true, but by leaving out the actual numbers, you totally mis-represent reality. In 1950 (prior to the vaccine) there were 33,000 new cases of polio in the US. By 1963 (ten years after introduction of the vaccine), this number was down to ~400. Between 1998 and 2008, there were 2. Yes, it is true that the live polio virus causes polio in about 1 in every 750,000 doses, but this rate is tiny compared to the frequency of polio prior to the vaccine (and oddly irrelevant, since the live virus vaccine is no longer given in the US).

      Finally, vaccines do not cause viruses to mutate. Viruses naturally mutate. It is possible that some day a mutated form of measles will develop that is resistant to the current vaccine, but so what? That just means we will be back where we started prior to the vaccine.

    You can learn more about measles, and the efforts to eliminate it worldwide here: http://www.MeaslesInitiative.org. Measles is one of the most infectious diseases but completely preventable through vaccination with two doses. Cases in the U.S. are tragic and extremely costly to treat and track – public health officials have to trace and notify people who may have had contact with measles cases. In developing countries, measles still kill about 450 kids a day. For them, the vaccine costs only 1 dollar.

      It's easy to find out which parents didn't vaccinate their children, because they won't be allowed to attend school; no wait, the privacy laws prevent any such information getting out. But the behavior could be criminalized, so that a community holds parents responsible for getting vaccinations for their children, or else jail. Records can be subpoenaed; but you will first have to agree to raise the taxes to support your court system so that you can afford to do this.

      Elizabeth – and who gets the blame when the vaccinations don't work or there are complications from having them? Lancet (medical journal) did a study about ten years ago linking the rise of juvenile diabetes in four and five year olds to amount of vaccines flooding their bodies. The Rotovirus vaccine has caused irregular peristalsis in two year olds and some children have died from bowel obstuctions. Vaccines can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and they LOWER the immunity of the child for a period of time, making them highly susceptible to other infections. Babies have been admitted to hospitals with congestive heart failure after a round of vaccines. Side-effects are VASTLY under-reported, and there are many laws that hold pharmaceutical companies – who can produce ineffective batches and contaminated batches – blameless.

      Criminalizing parents for not vaccinating their children is a stupid knee-jerk reaction. Will you also criminalize adults who didn't keep getting booster shots for themselves? Remember, vaccines do not last forever, and they don't work for everyone. There is a reason they call these diseases "childhood diseases." Children are far, far more likely to get over them without any complications at all than adults are. Until the advent of so-called 'modern' medicine, in the late 1800s, many children were successfully treated at home, with homeopathic remedies, and a lot of TLC. There were some fatalities, and there were some who ended up with hearing loss, but the vast majority of children recovered completely with no ill effects and a lifetime of immunity. Statistics show that childhood diseases themselves were on the downward slide of the bell curve before vaccines were introduced as standard public medicine. There is a strong argument that the vaccines themselves kept the disease around. This is definitely the case with the polio vaccine, which was a LIVE vaccine until the 1990s, and gave polio to a handful of children instead of immunizing them against it. Dr. Jonas Salk himself stood before Congress in the 1960s and said every single new case of polio in the US since 1963 was caused by the vaccine and he begged them to take it off the market until a better vaccine could be developed. Congress refused. Further more, the LIVE vaccine was marketed to third world countries and introduced polio to populations that had never come in contact with it before. Fortunately, there are no live vaccines being distributed in this country anymore, but long term effects of many of them, especially new ones like Gardisil, are unclear, and dosages are still being refined.

      The bottom line – vaccines can be a good thing, but they are not a miracle, and it is foolish, even dangerous, to think they are. Everyone should be aware of how vaccines work and what their limitations are, and if you choose to follow that path, you should take absolute responsibility for following through with the booster shots, even as adults. Those who choose not to vaccinate need to take even more responsibility. Do not engage in risky behavior, and stay home when you are sick.

    Heather and Roger, you're geniuses for deciding that there is "not a shred of evidence" that vaccines have dangers! Tell it to Dr. Jon Polling, the neurologist whose daughter was severely vaccine injured and will never recover. There is a growing number of medical doctors and scientists who are joining the chorus calling for more investigation into vaccines and the potential adverse effects they may have. All the studies done thus far have been sponsored by or conducted by the manufacturers of vaccines. Consider that the next time you reassure yourself about the "studies." Furthermore, the mortality statistics presented are worldwide, which is a terrible distortion of the real dangers. The risk of severe complications such as death from measles is ONE IN TEN THOUSAND in the U.S. or any western country with good medical care. The way this story was reported, one would think it was Ebola. Give me a break and dial down the hysteria.

      My son is now 17 and he has had all of his required vaccines as of now. However, for a long time he did not have all the MMR shots. After his second shot, he had a terrible reaction that terrified us. He could not stand on his own. When we would stand him up, his legs were completely stiff. Sat him down, same thing. He just screamed in absolute pain. We called the doctor and we spent just over 2 weeks with doctor's appointments, medications for pain, etc., until it finally (and thankfully) passed. The doctor's then decided to forgo any further MMR vaccines (as did we) until he was "older". However, when he was 5, he woke up one night with a fever and his neck was nearly as large as his head. I rushed him to the local ER and after several exams by different doctors and blood work, it was confirmed he had "somewhere" contracted the mumps. Again, not much they could do but send him home and let it run its course. But it was terrifying none-the-less. He just never has had a good response to MMR's and although he did finally get caught up with the required vaccines so he could attend school, play in sports, etc., we pray that honestly he never has to have any more - and that he doesn't find out when he's older that the mumps made him sterile (which can also happen). With regards to the mumps, we had to have it reported to our state's health department and they never did determine how or why or where he got them. I also have a 19 year old daughter. She went through all the shots, on-time, just fine. But all of you who think that they are completely "safe" please think again. Every single time I had to sign on the dotted line giving them permission to give him another vaccine (and promising not to sue if something happened adversely), I wanted to throw up. I've never gotten over feeling guilty for having signed to put him through what happened with his little legs when he was a baby. Vaccines are a great thing - they have cut down on so much disease. But don't ever think that it's 100% safe because it's not.

      You don't care about the risks of the side effects of measles if you survive it? Ever heard of Hellen Keller? Did you know that meningitis is a common side-effect? You can survive measles, but it is often deadly. My aunt died of it when she was 3 years old, before there were vaccinations. There were thousands and thousands of victims before the vaccines. If you don't vaccinate your children, and they carry a deadly disease, your neglect could murder another child. There should be criminal charges for this behavior, or a real, provable medical excuse.

      It bears mentioning that the normal court process does not apply when it comes to vaccines. There is a whole special system setup to protect the pharmecutical companies. Which is ostensibly there to protect them because they at one time or another needed to produce a vaccine as soon as possible consequences be damned. It would seem that we are past that historical point and they really should be held accountable for the safety of their vaccines just like the rest of their products.

      One of my major issues with vaccines though is that in some instances the state will add a vaccine to the mandatory list so that insurance companies will have to cover it, not because it's a deadly disease. My favorite example being Chicken Pox, the vaccine for which in my experience has been very ineffective and requires lots of boosters. And since it's not giving an effective immunity we are likely to see a surge in cases among adults, who were vaccinated for it as children, at which point it becomes a much more dangerous disease.

      Mare, for heaven's sake, your son is old enough at age 17 to learn whether he's sterile or not. (BTW, children who contract mumps don't usually have their fertility affected. That happens when adult males contract mumps and the disease descends into the testicles.)

      Take him to a clinic and have him tested if you're concerned about it. Better to know now than to worry needlessly. All he need do is ejaculate into a cup and have a semen test. It's easy. If we were neighbors I'd do it for you for free; I have a proper microscope.

      Cleopatra – opportunistic infectious diseases (measles, mumps, chicken pox among them) affect the very young, the elderly, and those with compromised immure systems far more than they do they rest of us.

      Even a fully vaccinated person can contract a disease if they have a condition which weakens their immune system. Which is why your unvaccinated, disease-carrying spawn should not be among the general population where they are at risk of infecting perfectly strangers who don't want your child's measles. Keep them at home where they're not a danger to anyone else.

      I've never been vaccinated against any of those diseases. My immunity came the hard way: I suffered every single form of measles as a child and the chicken pox, too.

      However, for some reason I never caught the mumps. All my friends and family went through that disease. Either I'm resistant or I was never properly exposed.

      Stay the hell away from me with your germy children and your unvaccinated selves. At my age I'm not interested in catching mumps now.

    Everyone has an opinion. Those who call these parents stupid; have you done the research on all of these vaccines? Are you aware of the possible side-effects before you allow the doctor to inject your child? Look at some statistics. How many measles deaths, blindness, deafness, other problems caused by measles? Yes, there were a few. Compare that to the potential numbers of autistic children who only exhibit autisitic behaviour immediately after receiving an MMR vaccine. Prior to 1953 nearly everyone caught the measles just like the chickenpox. The vast majority of those people recoved without lasting consequences. Not so with autism for which there is no cure. Consider polio. Even after the vaccine nearly eliminated polio from being casually contracted, do you know what the number one cause of polio was?... It was polio vaccine! So during that period of time a parent needs to consider the odds; Should they risk their child contracting polio out in the world or increase their chances of contracting the disease by giving them the vaccine. Big picture: Everyone who is complaining or fearful, just stop. If you have complete faith in your vaccine then you have nothing to worry about. Only those who have made a purposeful decision to not vaccinate are at risk and those people already understand that. You can rest easy and stop revealing how unintelligent you are by calling names and speaking out on topics that you know nothing about.

And please don't quote that contrived data about measles incidence decreasing for 4 years prior to he vaccine – and look up the CDC data yourself. It is so clear that you can only see vaccine non-efficacy if you go ino your search determined to find that vaccines are a failure.

    when I was about 18 months or so I received a 2nd dose of the MMR and came down with Measles. 29 years later I refuse to vaccinate my children with MMR and a good thing too. We just found out that all 3 of us: me and my two children are immune deficient and so instead of protecting them I would be injecting them with enough Measles to give them Measles. Which is what happened to me. My son had one round of MMR and got sick from it. Our doctor has stated we can't have live vaccines and that is that.
