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

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

Zsuzsanna Jakab - World Health Organization

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
