Mumps epidemic

Like many I have been following the mumps epidemic in the US. This epidemic has not been caused by widespread delibrate refusal to take a vaccine. In fact, Listing to the radio it seems one of 2 things

1) one it is people who had been vaccinated but not a full MMR
2) there was talk of how children today get 2 mumps shots and the majority infected only had one.
3) it is a strain from the UK.

This is only a taste of what could happen if the like of David Kirby is taken serious by the mainstream. it is a real and everpresent danger. If this ever happens because parents refuse vaccination , I hope that NAA, kirby,schafer,olmstead are held responsible.
