Last quote about Measles outbreak 2017

Zsuzsanna Jakab - World Health Organization
Every death or disability caused by this vaccine-preventable disease is an unacceptable tragedy. We are very concerned that although a safe, effective and affordable vaccine is available, measles remains a leading cause of death among children worldwide, and unfortunately Europe is not spared. I urge all endemic countries to take urgent measures to stop transmission of measles within their borders, and all countries that have already achieved this to keep up their guard and sustain high immunization coverage.feedback

Laura Hanen

Vaccine-preventable outbreaks are extraordinarily expensive. We have seen our public health workforce decline since the 2008 recession. While we have seen an economic recovery, it is going to take decades at the rate they are hiring to gain back the staff that they've lost.feedback

Ed Ehlinger

In recent months, state and local public health officials have had to respond to a series of infectious disease outbreaks including multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, hundreds of new cases of syphilis, and now, the largest measles outbreak the state has faced in nearly 30 years. Significant threats to public health are becoming more frequent and costly. Minnesotans rightly expect a rapid and effective response to these threats, but current state funds lack the flexibility needed to deal with emergent disease threats.feedback

Kris Ehresmann - Department of Health

Starting in 2008, when there was an observation that there was disproportionate number of Somali kids that were participating in Minnesota public schools special education services and right at that point the anti-vaccine folks started targeting the community. We have seen a dramatic uptick in MMR vaccination.feedback

Yasmin Ali

I saw that a lot of kids went to the hospital and after that I made a decision with my doctor to make an appointment to give her the vaccine. Everybody, when I see them, I say 'go to the hospital and vaccinate your kid'... because it's good for your kids.feedback

Patsy Stinchfield

Here in Minnesota we had 460 cases. That was my first year working here and we had three children die in Minnesota from measles and two of them died right here at our hospital. It is not a simple rash disease. It is a disease that can take one to two people's lives per every 1,000 cases. It can be a virus that gets into your brain and cause encephalitis, brain damage, blindness, deafness… It can get into your lungs and cause permanent lung damage. One of the challenges we face is all of the misinformation that has been targeted at the Somali community.feedback

Patsy Stinchfield

In medical science, there is no debate about the safety of vaccines.feedback

Mohamud Hassan

If your child is going to school, you don't want other kids to be affected too.feedback

Sophia Mohamed

We are not against the vaccine, but we want a safe vaccine. We have a choice ... I don't need any researcher to tell me. I know. I saw the results.feedback

Patti Carroll

We did a presentation that helped the Somalis put the measles and the MMR vaccine into perspective. It's their right to say no.feedback

Today's travel patterns put no person or country beyond the reach of the measles virus. Outbreaks will continue in Europe…until every country reaches the level of immunization needed to fully protect their populations.feedback

Bill Gates - Microsoft

Something that is human-to-human respiratory that is like a measles or a flu or smallpox, that you need just one person on the bus or plane or the airport and you get huge things. A health crisis somewhere is a health crisis everywhere. So the scariest thing is something like the 1919 flu which really spreads everywhere and because people are moving around more it's easier for it to spread than back in 1919. If 1919 came back we have no immunity to that strain.feedback

Zsuzsanna Jakab - World Health Organization

With steady progress towards elimination over the past two years, it is of particular concern that measles cases are climbing in Europe, . Today's travel patterns put no person or country beyond the reach of the measles virus. I urge all endemic countries to take urgent measures to stop transmission of measles within their borders, and all countries that have already achieved this to keep up their guard and sustain high immunisation coverage. Outbreaks will continue in Europe, as elsewhere, until every country reaches the level of immunisation needed to fully protect their populations.feedback

We went to Africa for a vacation to see the animals, but it was during this trip that we had our first encounter with deep poverty and it had a profound impact on us. It was a phenomenal trip. Not long after we returned from this trip, Melinda and I read that millions of poor children in Africa were dying every year from diseases that nobody dies from in the U.S: measles, hepatitis B, yellow fever. Rotavirus, a disease I had never even heard of, was killing half a million kids each year.feedback

Carissa Etienne

I would like to emphasize that our work on this front is not yet done. We can not become complacent with this achievement but must rather protect it carefully. Measles still circulates widely in other parts of the world, and so we must be prepared to respond to imported cases. It is critical that we continue to maintain high vaccination coverage rates, and it is crucial that any suspected measles cases be immediately reported to the authorities for rapid follow-up.feedback

Mohamed Fall - UNICEF

Security has improved in some areas so we have acted quickly to access places we could not previously reach and protect children from the spread of a very dangerous disease. We are still extremely concerned about children living in large areas of Borno state that are not yet accessible.feedback
