I mean its pretty obvious that vaccines cause autism, and seeing how this site has the greatest interest in autistic people, I figured kiwifarms has the biggest agenda to shill for vaccines, I didn't expect to go up against such a resistance, muh science and studies were no match.Did you really sign up just to spew all this autism?

A cruise ship with nearly 300 passengers and crew was ordered quarantined in the Caribbean port of St. Lucia after a case of measles was confirmed on board, island health officials said Wednesday.
One female crew member has a confirmed case and St. Lucian authorities said they've been working in close consultation with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).
The ship has been under quarantine since Monday morning, officials said.
"Measles in a highly contagious disease. Anyone who is not adequately immunized against measles can contract the disease, if there has been close contact with a confirmed case," according to a statement issued Wednesday by Dr. Merlene Fredericks-James, the island nation's chief medical officer. "It is therefore likely that other persons on the boat may have been exposed."
"The ship’s doctor has the confirmed case in isolation on the ship," Dr. Fredericks-James added. "The individual is in stable condition."
St. Lucian health officials declined to name the ship involved.
But St. Lucia Coast Guard Sgt. Victor Theodore told NBC News that the vessel involved is named "Freewinds," which is the name of a 440-foot cruise ship owned and operated by the Church of Scientology
Theodore identified the quarantined craft as the same one that's listed on the church's website.
While no one has been allowed to leave the ship, St. Lucian authorities said they don't have the authority to keep it from leaving.
For now, the ship is scheduled to leave St. Lucia at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, officials said.

The Pan American Health Organization said it's aware of the measles case on this cruise ship, but declined to comment or reveal any additional details.
The once-vanquished disease has made a surprising comeback in recent months, with more than 700 cases reported in the United States this year, officials said.
It's the highest number of reported cases in the U.S. in a year since 1994. The had been declared eliminated in 2000.
Southern California health officials have even asked fans of the blockbuster movie “Avengers: Endgame” to check their ticket stubs.
That's because a California woman in her 20s, with a confirmed case of measles, went to the see the superhero movie at the AMC in Fullerton. Anyone who was at that theater between 11 p.m. Thursday to 4 a.m. on Friday is being urged to get a screening.
At least they were nice enough to quarantine themselvesWell this happened:

They're also a bunch of crazies so craziness is often co-morbid. One of these cultists is more likely than the general population also to be an antivaxer or some other kind of nutjob.At least they were nice enough to quarantine themselves
Also it's kind of funny because Scientology is actually not against vaccination, only psychiatry and mental health in general. Though the recruits are taught some pretty crazy stuff so it makes sense they thought their brain wave sessions could train their bodies to combat all diseases or whatever these people were thinking. The church definitely won't stop them from thinking it seeing as it'll make them keep paying for more though
because those diseases can mutate and can get stronger. To the point where they'll affect adults who have vaccinated. Some vaccines also need to be boosted and not everyone does that.
It's r.etards like this that give furries a bad name. My standard response always has been, and always will be: . I couldn't care less what your opinions are. If opinions are like arseholes in that everybody has them, then they can't be worth all that much. What I care about is evidence. There is no scientific debate about the efficacy and safety of vaccines, because there is no debate to be had. Vaccines have been proven to be safe and effective time and time again. Science does not stop to consider your opinion just because you do not agree with the outcome. This is not how science works. We hypothesize, test, verify, and adjust our methodologies based on new evidence.
