Anti-Vaxxers Kill Children In Montreal

There is a measles outbreak in Montreal.

For the first time since 2007 Quebec is dealing with a widescale measles outbreak.

More than 700 cases of the potentially deadly disease have been reported in the province this year, with the majority of people being infected between April and July, although new infections are still being reported.

Most of the people infected live in the Mauricie region of the province, but the most recent cases have been reported in the Eastern Townships.

12 percent of the infections have been so bad people needed to be hospitalized for treatment.

Children need to be vaccinated against these diseases. It is a public health issue. If you are supporting the cause of the anti-vaxxers, pushing their agenda, or as a news organization forwarding these views – you are helping to kill children. (via @ZieberKR)
