Mljeza took a school in North Carolina, where many families claim religious exemption from vaccines.
Examples of chickenpox have multiplied at the Asheville Waldorf School, which serves children from kindergartens to sixth level in Asheville, North Carolina. Approximately twelve infections increased at the beginning of the month to 28. By Friday, there were 36, according to Asheville Citizen-Times.
The outbreak is one of the worst countries since the varicella vaccine became available more than 20 years ago. Since then, the two-dimensional course has managed to limit the highly contagious disease that was once hit by 90 percent of Americans.
The school is a symbol of a small but strong movement towards the most effective way of preventing the spread of infectious diseases – as an island in extensive medical consent. The percentage of children under the age of two who have not received vaccination has increased by four times since 2001, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Just like an outbreak of measles wildlife in 2015, the uprising has shown the real consequences of a sad debate that was fueled by junk science, prompted by the same type of Twitter bots and trolleys that spread the wrong information during the presidential election in 2016. And he says how the virtual periphery of the view can acquire the currency in a place like Asheville, Funky, all year resort resort nestled between Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains.
"The school follows the requirements for immunization set by the National Education Board, but also recognizes that parents' decision to immunize their children happens before they enter school," the school explained in a statement to Blue Ridge Public Radio.
Jennifer Mullendore, the medical director of Buncombe County, North Carolina, was unequivocal: "We want to be clear: vaccination is the best protection against chickenpox."
"When we see a large number of non-immunized children and adults, we know that illness, such as curses, can easily spread throughout the community – to our casinos, food stores and sports teams," she said in a press release.
But all parents did not understand the severity of the outbreak. Also, everyone does not see the reasons for vaccines that some people believe – as opposed to scientific evidence – cause serious health problems than they should be treated. Risk of risk for autism, even if it was decomposed, remained rallying against vaccine movement.
"What's happening with the curse?" one resident of the city, Amy Gordon, said Citizen-Times.
Sheep are serious, CDC warns, "even a life threatening, especially in infants, adolescents, adults, pregnant women and people with poor immune systems."
The virus appeared in approximately 4 million cases a year in the United States, which caused more than 10,000 hospitalizations and between 100 and 150 deaths. Children were particularly susceptible, as schools seemed to incubate a blister that first appeared on the abdomen, back and face and could spread over the entire body surface and create as many as 500 bladder bladder.
That was before the two-dose vaccination program was allowed in the United States in 1995.
The vaccine that the CDC says is about 90 percent effective, did not eliminate the varicella zoster virus, which causes curses. However, as the regime became commercially available, it reduced the number of cases and their severity. A 14-year prospective study published in the pediatric study in 2013 showed that the incidence of infection was nine to ten times lower than in the pre-vaccination period.
Nevertheless, it is clear that the vaccine is clearly documented the benefits are still unconvincing. Asheville Waldorf has one of the highest rates of exemption from religious vaccination rates in the country, according to the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs.
The private school has a higher degree of relief because of religious reasons than any other than two other schools in North Carolina, according to the Citizen-Times. In the school year 2017-18, 19 out of 28 kindergartens were released from at least one vaccine required by the state. Of the 152 students in the school, 110 patients did not receive varicella vaccine, they reported from the newspaper.
North Carolina demands that all students in the country receive certain immunizations. Among vaccines that are needed for children, old children, there are two doses for cursers, two for measles, and two for mumps. The seventh graders must re-designate for immunization.
But the state also allows exemptions based on the doctor's advice, but also for religious reasons.
"If the credible religious convictions of an adult or parent, guardian or person who is a child in the parentage of a child are contrary to the requirements for immunization contained in this section, the adult or child shall be exempted from the requirements," national law permits.
Recent efforts to tighten the rules are solidified. In 2015, state legislators withdrew a bill that would, after distorting its efforts, exhaust the protest. The protesters chose the State General Assembly in Raleigh, which warns of "medical terrorism".
Meanwhile, the district health director has encouraged residents to immunize their children. "What happens if we do not have a common immunity? It is a mistake," Mullendore told the municipal commissioners this autumn, which last year had the highest degree of religious exemption.
Friction between health professionals and caring people is not unique to Buncombe, where 5.7 percent of kindergartens demanded religious relief or even North Carolina, where the rate was 1.2 percent.
Seventy-eight countries allow religious exemptions regarding vaccine requirements, according to a national conference of national legislatures. CDC data indicate that the median percentage of preschools who did not receive one or more required vaccines was the highest in Oregon.
