How a Wrong Injection Helped Cause Samoa’s Measles Epidemic

by | Dec 2, 2019 | Health, Vaccines, World News | 0 comments

Samoa’s Measles outbreak was largely blamed on a rise in anti-vaccine sentiment, however it would seem that actually the epidemic may be due to the wrong injection being administered.

The BBC Reports:

The number of people killed in Samoa’s measles outbreak has reached 53, with almost 4,000 cases reported in total.

Health Ministry statistics show that 48 of the dead are children below the age of five.

Although measles deaths worldwide have fallen sharply since the 1960s, the World Health Organization has warned of a comeback around the world since 2017.

Samoa’s low vaccination rates are in part due to the deaths in 2018 of two children given a wrongly-mixed vaccine.

Measles is a highly contagious illness that causes coughing, rashes and fever.

Of course, the BBC has to then clarify the validity of vaccines anyway:

Although effective and safe vaccination is available, even some developed countries have seen a resurgence in recent years.

The rise is – in part – due to some parents shunning vaccines for philosophical or religious reasons, or concerns, debunked by medical science, that vaccines are linked to autism.
