Four Somali children die of measles

5 May

Dr. Abdirahman D. Mohamed, the chief of staff at Axis Medical Center in Minneapolis, said last month he knew of four unvaccinated Somali children who had died from measles.


This appalling news comes hot on the heels of anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorist Andrew Wakefield’s visit to the Somali community in the US to promote his fraudulent anti-MMR ‘studies’. Generation Rescue has also attended to the Somali community in Minneapolis.

Antivaccine groups have noticed. In November, J. B. Handley…wrote an open letter to “Courageous Somali Parents.”

He warned them not to trust the state health department and suggested they slow down their children’s shots and get exemptions to school vaccination requirements. He also offered to pay for some to attend an antivaccine conference.

All these people and groups should now reap the harvest of what they have sown. Death. Preventable death.

    I would want to contact the person who made that statement for clarification. So far, the MDH has stated no deaths:

    Slight bit of a Scottish origin hint there – “Help Ma’ Boab” as it should be, from Oor Wullie. But on the other hand consistently switching space and point is not a Scottish habit – they’re smarter than that. I know.

    Vaccine Derived Autism is one of the biggest crimes in history , and this website is an accomplice to this crime .The Game is nearly up boys , the CDC is leaning towards the environmental now (the gentic argument is nearly entirely lost). 1 in 60 will destroy any economy . So where are you people going to run to when the truth is finally accepted ? Scare stories of measles deaths or chelation injuries will not work anymore . Our mercury poisoned children are injured beyond your meagre understanding .
    Hiding where Ethyl Mercury is used in the production of vaccines will not help you .Dodgy Danish studies sponsored by vaccine manufacturers will not protect you . The Pharma collaborators & apologists belong in prison for these crimes against our children.
