Willem De Kooning’s “Police Gazette” at Crucial Talk
“Of the 131 total cases reported to the CDC, 123 occurred in U.S. residents. Five of these residents had received a single dose of measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine; six had received two MMR doses; and 112 were unvaccinated or had unknown vaccination status. Of those 112 cases, 16 occurred in patients who were too young to be vaccinated and one occurred in a patient who was born before 1957 and, therefore, was presumed to have immunity. Finally, of the 95 remaining patients eligible for vaccination, 63 had not been immunized because of their parents’ philosophical or religious beliefs.”
Pelo que andei lendo, algumas religiões acham falta de fé vacinar os filhos pois estariam subestimando a proteção divina. Não li nada, entretanto, sobre crenças filosóficas. Fico pensando que tipo de “crença filosófica” impediria alguém de tomar vacina.
