There’s quite a lot of chat in the world currently about measles outbreaks. Maybe a little more heat than light, as the expression goes?
Here are some resources that could prove useful.
There is additional info in the posting Vaccines: Miscellany, A - Z. The posting Vaccines: Truth Hiding in Plain Sight! is also directly relevant in its discussion of the vaccine manufacturer’s information about possible risks associated with the MMR vaccine. (MMR vaccine monograph links are, however, included in this posting. Scroll down for these.)
Note on May 5/19: At this point, I am adding information at the top. This is not how the posting was organized previously. I was keeping MD info up top. So, the posting is morphing, but it’s mostly chronological, with the most recent stuff up top.

Measles Hysteria – What’s Really Going On? <Excellent piece, April 2015. Points out “A large Ontario study found that one in 168 children ended up in the emergency room after MMR vaccination. Several children died during the three year study period.” & plenty more.

No Measles Deaths in the US in 10 Years (I think this item must be from 2015. I find this Web site irritating, in that it does not give correct dates for when an item is published. What always shows at the top of the site, for any item you look at, is the date on the day you look at the item. Not convenient!)

Epidemiologic Basis for Eradication of Measles in 1967 <March 1967> Odd! Starts out by stating measles has always been around & is virtually harmless. Then goes on to talk about eradicating it. (The hubris of human beings never ceases to amaze me.)
The Med Science Research site has information about measles. Go to the M section & choose Measles & check it out!
The Measles Couldn’t Kill the Brady Bunch Measles as it was when I was a kid! & yes, I had them - 2 kinds, & mumps, too. & chickenpox.
******* Monograph for MMR vaccine (From Merck. Read it All. The. Way. Through) If you prefer, here’s one from GSK. ** all monographs can be found linked here
** Be sure to read one of the vaccine “monographs!” It’s important!! You wouldn’t even believe all the possible side effects. Best to know this AHEAD of time, right?? Afterward is a little too late…hmmmm?
** How Does Measles Really Spread?
Measles Transmitted By The Vaccinated, Gov. Researchers Confirm <Oct. 2018; same item as above; different source>
Many of us advise “Educate BEFORE you vaccinate.”
Seems pretty commonsensical, don’t you think? Find out possible risks before the needle goes in (afterward is a little late, hmmmm?). My new favourite brochure about vaccination is here. (Note: the brochure just mentioned is U.S.-based, not Canada-focused.)
You can find a route to ALL vaccine “monographs” or “inserts” (i.e., information from the manufacturer including warnings, risks, possible side effects, at the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site. That site has simply gobs of information. Click on ‘About Vaccines, then click on ‘Specific Vaccines’ & scroll down to the top link. Or go directly, here.)
