Williamsburg "Yentas" that against vaccines causing a Chicken Pox Outbreak


A bunch of crazed vaabelich with "shpitzlach" are putting thousands of children in mortal danger because of their sick insistence that their children not be immunized, causing a contagious disease to spread like a wild fire in Brooklyn! 

The New York City Department of Health is warning parents about a chicken pox outbreak after more than six dozen children have been infected in Brooklyn.

Health officials said so far, 75 people have been infected since March in an Orthodox Jewish community in Williamsburg. The median age of patients is 3 years old.
Of those who have contracted the virus, health officials said 72 percent had not been vaccinated and 14 percent had not had the recommended number of doses of the vaccine.

Health officials warn the virus is extremely contagious, so they are urging people to make sure they are vaccinated.
Patients with the chicken pox are contagious two days before they even develop a rash and those who have not been vaccinated can get sick as many as three weeks after they are exposed.
Those at greatest risk from serious complications are infants, pregnant women and people with autoimmune diseases or compromised immune systems.

Once you've gotten the chicken pox virus (it's actually in the herpes family of viruses), you can get shingles later in life when your immune system starts to break down due to aging.

There are many people who purposely expose kids to chicken pox at a young age because it is very mild at that point. I remember when a bochur in his young 20s got it he was so sick it was almost unimaginable. And he was in tremendous fear that he could have been permanently marred which can happen at that age & would be bad for shidduchim. He had siyata diShmaya that the permanent marks were not on his face or anywhere else not covered by clothes. Chicken pox is a death sentence for elderly people who never had it before.

But the Willy yentas were idiots when it came to the Mumps outbreak which can chalila render kids sterile.
