(Editor’s note: Remember, Merck is being sued by their own virologists for the inefficacy of their MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine which you can read about here.)
Nassau County health officials have reported that 18 people, vaccinated people, from the Long Beach area, have come down with the mumps (best known for causing swelling along the jawline but also causes headache, fever, and pain). Of the 18 confirmed cases, most are between the ages of 19 and 30, with a few in their 50s.
Despite having already been vaccinated, the patients came down with symptoms over the last few days. County Health Commissioner Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein, “Sometimes nature throws a strain at us that might have mutated a little bit, and coverage of the vaccine is not 100 percent.” So why get the shot? Why put yourself or family at risk? Especially for something that normally clears up on its own.
There is no treatment for the mumps, either, you have to tough it out. BUT, once you’re through it, you’ll have NATURAL IMMUNITY. And that my friends, is immunity that lasts a lot longer than the shot.
If you think you have mumps, stay home for at least 5 days. Also, if you are around other people cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, avoid sharing drinks, AND no kissing.
