Last week, the community college I have been attending, has reported one of my classmates got diagnosed with measles. For those who have heard about measles for the first time:
Hes been having a cold since day one of the course and 9 days later he was quarantined. Now, the rest of us are getting regular phone calls from health care providers to check if we have developed symptoms. So far. everyone in the course was vaccinated twice and none of us have been infected...but the college closed for decontamination. Its not cool because I payed 2 000$ for the 3 week course. The sad part is the guy who contracted measles's wife is pregnant and not vaccinated. I hope no complications arise for them.
I want to take this chance to remind everyone to get their shots, you will help prevent outbreaks and not have to suffer for 3-4 weeks to beat it when someone around you spreads it.
