The CDC recommends two rounds of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccinations at 12-15 months of age and again at 4-6 years. Current CDC records report 118 cases of measles January to May 2011 – which was the “highest reported number for the same period since 1996” – none resulted in death. However, a search on a government website called VAERS using the same time period, found a total of 436 adverse events and 2 deaths related to measles vaccines. But don’t be fooled as these adverse event numbers are much lower than actual numbers since the National Vaccine Information Center says that “…perhaps less than one percent of all vaccine-related health problems are ever reported…”. CDCs own website shows clearly that measles was almost gone before the measles vaccine was ever introduced in 1963.
