Welcome back, Measles

(with apologies to Gabe Kaplan and the Sweathogs)

Welcome back,

We had a vaccine to knock you out.

Welcome back,

They’re the same families who once laughed about.

Though it’s safe, MMR, it’s been kicked around

You waited for your chance, now you’re back around.

Who’d have thought we’d meet you? (Who’d have thought we’d meet you?)

We’d already beat you. (We’d already beat you.)

The mortality’s a lot, yeah it’s more than just some spots

Welcome back.

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

It’s a travesty. A vocal but entirely misguided minority is succeeding in bringing back a once-vanquished, deadly disease. Measles is truly back, in the United States, Great Britain, and other countries where anti-MMR hysteria has replaced sound science and good thinking.

For more details about how bad science, money, and media hysteria combined to create the illusion that there is controversy whether MMR is safe, read this detailed and very revealing account.
