Measles Infections Can Wipe Out Immunity to OTHER Diseases

We’re very clearly in favor of vaccines here, because they save a LOT of lives. Did you know the measles vaccine does more than protect you from measles? Getting infected with measles doesn’t only make you sick (and carry a risk of death) it can also wipe out pre-existing immunity to other illnesses, making you more susceptible to other infections. In fact, data suggest that the majority of measles-associated deaths are due NOT to measles, but to infections taking root after measles has run its course!
