>Could someone explain this to me? Are these people not immunized? I thought you had to have your MMR shots before you could attend school. At least that’s what I remember.
I’ve been immunized 3 freaking times. First, when I was a baby. When I was about 8 years old because the school district felt that I had my MMR shot as baby one month too soon. They wouldn’t let me attend school until I could prove I wasn’t going to spread the diseases. Then there was a measles scare when I was about 16 years old and my mom dragged me and my sister down to the doctor to get the immunization again.
It’s either one of two things: 1) The shots aren’t as effective as once thought or 2) People aren’t getting their shots.
