Original Message So the massive earthquake in Nepal that left thousands dead and millions homeless is responded to by the WHO, UNICEF, etc with MANDATORY MEASLES VACCINATIONS?

Seriously? Is that the most pressing issue facing these people? Is there not a more effective way to provide aid, a better use of time and resources? Maybe, say, clean water, food, shelter, basic medical treatment, etc?

They're worried about the fucking measles?

No. They are NOT worried about the measles. They are interested in injecting as many people as possible with whatever this vaccine really is that they hyped here in the U.S. not long ago if you'll remember. And what better people to force inject than those who have just lost everything and think the people are actually there to help them?

Nepal earthquake: Emergency measles jabs given to 500,000 children amid fears of deadly outbreak
[link to www.mirror.co.uk]

Emergency vaccinations are being given to more than half a million children who survived the Nepal earthquake to save them from a killer measles outbreak.

A mass vaccination programme is underway with fears the potential deadly disease is sweeping through the squalid tent cities many families have been forced to call home.

Since the 7.8-magnitude earthquake has left as many as eight million people without shelter or sanitation, providing the perfect breeding ground for disease.

Unicef, the World Health Organisation and the Nepalese Ministry of Health and Population scrambled medical teams to the most densely populated areas to start vaccinating under-fives against measles, which kills around 145,000 people around the globe every year.

Before vaccination programmes began in the 1980s, measles caused an estimated 2.6 million deaths each year.

UNICEF’s Tomoo Hozumi, in Nepal, said: “Measles is very contagious and we fear it could spread very quickly in the often crowded conditions in the improvised camps where many children are living.


Around 1.7 million children remain in urgent need of humanitarian aid in the worst-hit areas, Unicef said.

According to figures available before the earthquake struck, around one in 10 children in Nepal is not vaccinated against measles.
