- The Facts:A study published in 2017 94 measles sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences.
- Reflect On:Why is the information presented in this article practically unknown and never given any mainstream media attention? How dangerous is the measles compared to the MMR vaccine?
What Happened: A study published in 2017 in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology found that “During the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences…” The authors developed a test that can identify measles vaccine strains rapidly in order to do this.
The new assay was able to detect RNA from five currently used vaccine strains, AIK-C, CAM-70, Edmonston-Zagreb, Moraten, and Shanghai-191. The MeVA RT-qPCR assay has been used successfully for measles surveillance in reference laboratories, and it could be readily deployed to national and subnational laboratories on a wide scale.
