Vaccinated Nurse in Seattle Diagnosed With Measles

Vaccinated Nurse in Seattle Diagnosed With Measles

A vaccinated nurse at  Seattle Children’s Hospital was recently diagnosed with measles after having been exposed to a child who tested positive for measles infection. The child had been in the hospital’s emergency room on June 22, June 25 and June 26, 2019 but only showed symptoms of measles during the third visit. Hospital officials said the child immediately had been put in isolation.1 2

The nurse, who is in her 20s and works in the inpatient units, had received two MMR vaccinations and had worn “appropriate personal protective equipment” while caring for the pediatric patient but came down with the disease anyway. An article in The Seattle Times noted that she was “potentially contagious while working from July 8 through July 11.”1 2 3

According to the website Nurse.org, “Patients who are diagnosed with measles are required to be isolated in an airborne infection isolation room (AIIR) for four days. Staff who care for the patient should wear N95 masks.” The masks are more technically known as N95 particulate filtering facepiece respirators. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), the N95s are the most commonly used particulate filtering facepiece respirators in the U.S.3 4

Hospital officials reportedly notified patients, families and staff who “may have been exposed, providing information about exposure dates, disease symptoms” and offered “preventative treatment if necessary.”1 2

This measles case in a vaccinated nurse was the 11th case of measles reported in King County, Washington since January 2019. So far this year, there have been a total of 1,182 confirmed cases of measles in the Unites States.3 5

    As always much info is left out.

    First most important question: Why did the nurse become infected when the vaccine is said to be 97% effective? Spin will be she got the shots but they hadn’t had time to basically take to make her immune. But if you read the Measles CDC’s Pink Book it tells you there is a certain percentage of people the shots will not work on. 2-5% of recipients don’t respond to the 1st injection but supposeably will to the second injection although there is no data in the Pink Book that substantiates that. The CDC doesn’t really discuss failure to the 2nd dose. Probably because they never tested for it but it’s common according to my relatives in the health care field that fully vaccinated people become infected. A nurse posted this on a blog years about about the measles vaccine:

    In my experience working in mainstream medicine for 22 years, I found that when pediatricians saw kids with the exact same symptoms, labs and history, they would diagnose the un-vaccinated kids with the apparent disease, e.g. “measles,” but the vaccinated would be diagnosed as “viral syndrome, NOS.”
    This was on the basis that they assumed the vaccinated kids could NOT possibly have the disease! As far as I know that is standard practice. So the percentage of vaccinated children who get the diseases may in fact be much higher than what we are told.

    Questions to ask:
    -Was the child who had measles vaccinated?
    -If so when?
    -What genotype of measle did the child have?
    What genotype did the fully vaccinate nurse have?
    -Was a PCR test done to determine if the nurse was infected by the child?
    -Is the nurses infection due to antigen drift of the vaccine she was given?
    -If recently vaccinated was she infected by the vaccine?

    Arch Intern Med. 1994 Aug 22;154(16):1815-20.
    Failure to reach the goal of measles elimination. Apparent paradox of measles infections in immunized persons.
    Poland GA1, Jacobson RM.
    Conclusion: The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.

    Here’s a oldie but a goodie:
    -Outbreak of Measles Among Persons With Prior Evidence of Immunity, New York City, 2011. Oxford Journal.
    Of 88 contacts, four secondary cases were confirmed that had either two doses of measles-containing vaccine or a past positive measles IgG antibody. All cases had laboratory confirmation of measles infection, clinical symptoms consistent with measles, and high avidity IgG antibody characteristic of a secondary immune response.” This report of measles transmission from a twice vaccinated individual. The clinical presentation and laboratory data of the index were typical of measles in a naïve individual. Secondary cases had robust anamnestic antibody responses. No tertiary cases occurred despite numerous contacts.

    The CDC gives Doctors a protocol for diagnosing people who have measles but are fully vaccinated just to skew the numbers and manipulate the public in Chapter 7: Measles, on their website.

    I expect the nurse’s case of measles will be a bad one, given that she had the two vaccines and then natural exposure.

    Was the nurse tested to see if she had the same strain of measles as the infected child, or if it was the strain in the vaccines she received?

    Research another excellent source of information on vaccines, by the prolific CATHERINE FROMPOVICH. However, do not be distracted by the first web site entitled “Encyclopedia of American Loons” that comes up under her name (which someone paid a lot of money for) whose intentions should be obvious if you instead ignore that site, to just first scroll down through her many web sites, and books authored over the years – that are far more convincing.

    All I can say is “obviously the measles vaccine doesn’t work.” Note, they don’t mention the vaccination status for MMR for the child who had measles. But I know where I’d put my money. And talk about major overreaction. I lived in – and THROUGH the days when measles was joyously met with a week off of school, granted my mother darkened the room and wouldn’t let me watch TV (pout pout!), and was simply a mild rash, mild fever, and if you were lucky, maybe you had siblings or friends you could hang out with who also had it!

    Measles only became a dread disease – like chickenpox, mumps – when Big Pharma discovered they could use scare tactics to force people into a fear state and mass vaccination to pad their bottom lines.

    And unfortunately, now everyone is so overvaccinated and immunocompromised, it can be dangerous for adults – it was meant to be a childhood disease. And the false sense of security of vaccines that simply don’t protect anyone from anything, and in fact, create epidemics of allergies, neurological disorders and much more – now has everyone living in fear and rolling up their sleeves for more of what didn’t work in the first place at best, and made them less healthy at worse.

    Every time we play god with science, we create a bigger problem. Amazing how that seems to work.

      The insightful and provable medical facts stated in the 3rd paragraph should be posted in BOLD letters! Would that the CDC’s handling of all Vaccine information would be completely HONEST!

    I read that she had only one dose. No mention in the article that one of the side effects listed on the vaccine insert is encephalitis.

    The part of the story that got me shaking my head is in the very first paragraph … “the child had immediately been put in isolation.” When did the measles become the plague? Measles, along with chicken pox, were typically a normal part of childhood. Anyone here remember pox parties? And I’d be curious to know the strain of measles the nurse was infected with … whether it was same as the child or from the vaccines she received.

    I have spent the last nine of the years of my daughters life LIVING at hospitals due to her Severe Adverse Reaction and has Cerebellar Ataxia for life from four different types of vaccines given to her in one sit in(insert the conjugates making it TWELVE), I have had countless nurses tell me under the table that they don’t believe in vaccines and they see the damage they do to everyone(mostly children), and they don’t want to get their vaccines but, are FORCED to if they want to keep their jobs. What kind of society does this to your people, who supposedly, live in “freedom?” How does this REALLY vary from the WWII in Germany dictatorship how people(like my relatives) were forced live according to HIS ideals?

    When I was a kid, we had measles parties and mumps parties, etc., so that all the kids in town would be exposed and done with these “illnesses” before school started (if possible). NO ONE WAS ISOLATED BECAUSE THEY HAD ONE OF THESE TOTALLY INNOCENT CHILDHOOD DISEASES.

    What we’ve got people believing nowadays has ONLY to do with the fact that the medical industrial complex has vaccines to sell. No one really needs them, never did. It’s like quite a few other diseases, they aren’t dangerous except for a very small percentage of people. Usually these diseases are not a problem in an already healthy group of people. If you are from Africa or somewhere and live under brutal weather and disease conditions in the first place, it might be a “dangerous disease”. But not in an already healthy population. Since vaccines are making everyone sicker by the day (and other “modern” medical practices too) now they want to produce MORE of them. The “industry” NEEDS PEOPLE to be sick . . .

    This MMR vaccine it’s pure crap. CDC should begin to acknowledge that they made a huge mistake and stop blaming others for their mistakes, shame on them!!

    Measles is a big nothing disease. Unless you are seriously depleted of vitamin A. People need to eat healthier, and that means going back to ancient dietary wisdom, avoiding the ubiquitous chemical toxins out there and eating what their great grandparents ate. Lots of fats, tallow, butter, lard, eggs, organ meats. That’s what healthy native peoples ate. Look at “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration” by Dr. Weston A Price.

    I’d be more afraid of “catching” autism or dementia from the shots.

    I just had my immunity tested through a blood test. I have had all of my vaccinations. It turns out I am immune to rubella and mumps but NOT measles. They clearly do not understand the measles vaccine at all. These measles outbreaks can be largely attributed to a vaccine failure, yet no on will admit to this.
