I heard a new one from an anti-vaxxer yesterday. Her daughter "caught" autism from a vaccine. She has an actual autism diagnosis from a real doctor and receives some sort of public assistance check for it (SSI maybe?) for several years now. Her mother "cured" her with health food, essential oils and something she calls 'good gut' stuff. It is now time for her check up and she won't take the child in for fear the gov't will find out she cured her and cut off her checks. The crazy was real strong with this one.

The flu has certainly struck the school children in Minnesota. My brother had it last week. And now many folks will be traveling for the holidays, spreading germs far and wide.

Flu deaths up 65% in the new year: CDC
Children are particularly vulnerable to the flu and its complications.


https://abcnews.go.com/Health/1300-peop ... itter_abcn
Flu deaths are up more than 65% so far in 2020, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that 4,800 people had died and 87,000 people had been hospitalized during the 2019-2020 flu season, according to preliminary estimates the government agency released Friday.

Of those deaths, 32 were children, a group that's particularly vulnerable to the flu and its complications.

During recent past flu seasons, deaths among children have ranged from 37 to 187 fatalities.

While deaths are up, visits to health care providers for the flu decreased for the week ending Jan. 4. It's unclear whether that means the flu season has peaked or whether the holidays stopped people from seeking medical attention, according to the CDC.

The influenza B virus circulating now is especially dangerous to children. Much less so to us older folk.

Twice in one month now, Austin health officials have reported the first case of a vaccine-preventable disease in 20 years. First it was measles, now it's rubella.

Strict Vaccine Law Stumbles in N.J. Legislature
There were not enough votes in the State Senate to end religious exemptions to vaccine requirements for all students.
The bill in New Jersey was strongly opposed by thousands of anti-vaccine families from a wide variety of religious backgrounds, who have flooded the statehouse in recent days to express their objections. They had won the support of many lawmakers, including the Republican Assembly minority leader, Jon Bramnick of Union County. In floor debate before the bill’s passage, Mr. Bramnick called the bill overly broad. “To tell a doctor that they cannot use their ability, their expertise, to write an exemption handcuffs doctors,” he said, referring to language in the bill that also tightens the rules for granting medical exemptions.

Among those opposing the bill is the nation’s main ultra-Orthodox Jewish umbrella organization, Agudath Israel of America, which is taking a more active role in fighting the measure in New Jersey than it did in New York. New Jersey is home to the largest Orthodox yeshiva in the country, Beth Medrash Govoha, which is in Lakewood and has about 7,000 students.
While most Orthodox Jews vaccinate their children, many rabbinical authorities “are very concerned about this bill” because it mandates vaccines even in those cases where a rabbi may decide they are unwarranted, said Avi Schnall, the New Jersey director of Agudath Israel of America. Such a situation, he said, might arise in cases in which a family believes it has two children injured by vaccines, and is debating whether to vaccinate a third child. Most rabbis would rule that such a child should not be vaccinated, he said.
“There is a religious element to vaccines,” he said.

Religious element to vaccines, so Rabbis have the last word. Good night, America.
