    At least 36 cases are confirmed in Clark County.

    This post was shared recently by an anti-vaxx mom in Washington state that garnered a ton of responses.

    Can anyone guess how this person could protect their child from the measles?

    She posted this question in a Facebook group called "Vaccine Education Network: Natural Health Anti-Vaxx Community."

    Now health officials say the measles have spread to Hawaii. Children who have not been vaccinated are the majority of these patients.

    Some are taking this as an opportunity to voice their opinions on the subject.

    As the father of a three year old, I’d like to offer up a hearty and sincer fuck you to the irresponsible, selfish, and incredibly stupid parents that have caused this measles outbreak.

    Others are just dropping some serious knowledge.

    Vaccinations don’t cause autism but even if they did I have autism & like I’d much rather have this than measles or polio

    I have thoughts on this whole measles outbreak They go something like this: once upon a time, there were no vaccinations & life expectancy was shit. Lots of people died. Horribly. Now we have vaccines; kids live to adulthood. This is a new phenomenon. VACCINATE YOUR KIDS, FFS

    Measles is making a comeback. VACCINATE THY CHILDREN YOU STUPID BASTARDS.

    Even doctors are weighing in on this.

    Have you ever witnessed someone die of measles? I have. It’s particularly deadly in adults. The anti-vaxer movement is founded upon a lie. Please vaccinate your kids.

    Washington has now officially declared a state of emergency due to the measles outbreak.
