Measles Outbreak Traced To Fully Vaccinated Patient For First Time

For the first time, a person fully vaccinated (twice vaccinated individual) against measles has contracted the disease and passed it on to others. According to a study recently published in Clinical Infectious Diseases, the 2011 New York measles outbreak affected individuals with prior evidence of measles vaccination and vaccine immunity. The study noted that measles may occur in vaccinated individuals, but secondary transmission (prior to this study) has never been documented.(1)

A fully vaccinated 22-year-old theater employee in New York city who developed the measles in 2011 was released without hospitalization or quarantine, despite the vaccination, she turned out to be contagious and transmitted the disease to four other people, two of whom had been fully vaccinated. The other two both showed signs of previous measles exposure that should have rendered them immune.

Researchers investigated  88 individuals who contracted the virus during the 2011 New York city outbreak, and concluded that:

“By analyzing her blood, the researchers found that Measles Mary mounted an IgM defense, as if she had never been vaccinated. Her blood also contained a potent arsenal of IgG antibodies, but a closer look revealed that non of these IgG antibodies were actually capable of neutralizing the measles virus. It seemed that her vaccine-given immunity had wanted.” (source)

Vaccine manufactures and health authorities constantly used measles outbreaks in the United States to claim that they were a result of failure to vaccinate. But now we know that that’s not the case, that it could very well be the failure of the vaccine.

The truth is, Measles vaccine failures have been documented for a quarter of a century, around the globe, as reported by

  • 1985, Texas, USA: According to an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1987, “An outbreak of measles occurred among adolescents in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the spring of 1985, even though vaccination requirements for school attendance had been thoroughly enforced.” They concluded: “We conclude that outbreaks of measles can occur in secondary schools, even when more than 99 percent of the students have been vaccinated and more than 95 percent are immune.”(2)
  • 1985, Montana, USA: According to an article published in the American Journal of Epidemiology titled, “A persistent outbreak of measles despite appropriate prevention and control measures,” an outbreak of 137 cases of measles occurred in Montana. School records indicated that 98.7% of students were appropriately vaccinated, leading the researchers to conclude: “This outbreak suggests that measles transmission may persist in some settings despite appropriate implementation of the current measles elimination strategy.”(3)
  • 1988, Colorado, USA: According to an article published in the American Journal of Public Health in 1991, “early 1988 an outbreak of 84 measles cases occurred at a college in Colorado in which over 98 percent of students had documentation of adequate measles immunity … due to an immunization requirement in effect since 1986. They concluded: “…measles outbreaks can occur among highly vaccinated college populations.”(4)
  • 1989, Quebec, Canada: According to an article published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health in 1991, a 1989 measles outbreak was “largely attributed to an incomplete vaccination coverage,” but following an extensive review the researchers concluded “Incomplete vaccination coverage is not a valid explanation for the Quebec City measles outbreak.(5)
  • 1991-1992, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: According to an article published in the journal Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical, in a measles outbreak from March 1991 to April 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, 76.4% of those suspected to be infected had received measles vaccine before their first birthday. (6)
  • 1992, Cape Town, South Africa: According to an article published in the South African Medical Journal in 1994, “[In] August 1992 an outbreak occurred, with cases reported at many schools in children presumably immunised.” Immunization coverage for measles was found to be 91%, and vaccine efficacy found to be only 79%, leading them to conclude that primary and secondary vaccine failure was a possible explanation for the outbreak.(7)

“What’s happening now is that the moment a measles outbreak occurs, a reflexive ‘blame the victim’ attitude is assumed, and the media and/or health agencies report on the outbreak as if it has been proven afflicted are under or non-vaccinated-often without a shred of evidence to support these claims.” – Sayer Ji (Source)

While we are on this topic, I think it’s also important to illustrate that there is absolutely no science behind the belief that the “herd” can be protected by vaccinating enough of the sheep. In fact, documents obtained by Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, from the Neural Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia reveal that vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public to protect “herd immunity.” This is scientific fraud, and suggests that this practice continues till this day.

    No the government does not say the immunity lasts forever. Why do you think they have boosters. What they say is if you do catch it, the severity of the suffering is greatly reduced over if you had never been vaccinated.

    • They also said this about Pertussis (whooping cough) when they had outbreak in norther Canada, as far back as 1989. This was the highest population of fully vaccinated children. The ONLY children that ended up in hospital with whooping cough had been fully vaccinated. Those that had NOT been vaccinated has such mild cases, they did not require medical intervention. Please see more vaccine references:

    • ” the severity of the suffering is greatly reduced over if you had never been vaccinated.” – Can you please post a citation to a single medical study to prove your statement?

    • Todd

      This person received a booster, as stated in the very first sentence of this article. (twice vaccinated individual)

    Vaccinations or Contracting a virus doesn’t render you immune to it, you will just have a heightened resistance to the virus. In some cases (Chicken Pox) this will lead to an immunity but not always, the point of vaccinations is provide the body with a non-contagious, i believe inert(not sure on this one), version of the virus so the body can build anti-bodies to fight it.

    • Can you post a peer-reviewed medical study that proves vaccines give you heightened resistance? Vaccinations don’t not confer immunity or heightened resistance. The only efficacy it can confer (according to every manufacturer) is “research efficacy” that is development of a specific antibody. In terms of “clinical efficacy” which is the ability to prevent a future infection – this is always listed as “unknown”. Moreover, there are dozen of studies and examples showing that even with the antibody from a vaccine (as per the article above) you are potentially just as likely to get the disease and in some cases more likely, google “atypical measles”.

    • Judy

      There will be many undocumented cases. My 20 year old daughter got a full-out case of measles after both of her vaccines…the worst one occurred at age 5, when she had her second one and had measles EVERYWHERE. I only reported her first case to our local health unit and didn’t bother with the other.

  4. John

    ONE “secondary transmission” proves vaccines don’t work? WOW, if I failed once out of millions of attempts I think EVERYONE would describe me as extremely successful!
