Dr. Oz: Measles Outbreak
Dr. Oz talked about the Measles outbreak. He urged parents to get themselves vaccinated and to vaccinate their kids. Measles is one of the most contagious viruses known. In an unvaccinated population, it only takes one person to infect up to 18 people. One dose of the measles vaccine gives us about 93% protection.
Dr. Oz acknowledged that a lot of people believe vaccines have given their kids complications. But Dr. Oz spoke to the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, and Autism Speaks. All of them agree vaccines do not cause autism.
