A group of & # 39; worried & # 39; Mothers in Wisconsin sent letters into their neighborhood and warned other parents of an anti-wax in their community.
In the letter sent to Imgur and since becoming viral, the woman called by name and wrote that she did not believe in vaccinating herself or her family. "
The mothers say that this woman's decision puts more people at risk of catching infectious diseases, including those who are immune or" medically fragile "
& # 39; Be careful when sharing work or personal space with that person, eat food prepared by that person or participate in gatherings at that person's house, as the letter reads in part.
The unvaccinated person presents a unique threat to infants, who often have not yet completed vaccinations completed and can quickly become fatally ill or die.
A group called "Concerned VAT in Wisconsin "send te their letters (pictured) out to their neighborhood and expelled an anti-wax and warn other residents to "take care of her"  The mothers then continue to enumerate the states where outbreaks of preventive diseases, including chickenpox, measles, hides and whooping cough have taken place.
Almost all outbreaks of disease were started by unvaccinated individuals who pass vaccine preventive diseases to them without adequate protection, & # 39; they write.
The letter issued a fierce debate on social media, where some supported the cause of the group and others condemn it.
& # 39; don't care how stupid a person is. If you want to send something like this, write your name! Otherwise you are a prison, "wrote a user.
I understand the" goal "of this, but it seems that it could quickly be transferred to an unfounded witch hunt, wrote another.
This has certainly been true In the case of the recent measles outbreak in the United States, which recently hit a figure of 387, the total number in 2018 exceeded 372, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
However, the highly contagious disease is spread among people who are unvaccinated or living in states that allow non-medical exceptions for vaccines, says federal health officials.
Cases have been confirmed in Arizona , California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
Of These States, Six – Arizona, Colorado, Michigan, Orego n, Texas and Washington – exemptions for philosophical and / or personal beliefs are allowed.
Wisconsin, where the writers live, is one of 17 states that do not allow non-medical vaccine exemptions.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, measles cases have not been confirmed in residents since 2014.
Last year, an unvaccinated Wisconsin man suspected of being exposed to the disease was accused by the police of breaking mandate quarantine so he could go to the gym.
The 57-year-old and his wife were charged with a bill, each of which exposed the public to infectious diseases, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Washington and New York have particularly struggled to contain their respective outbreaks of measles.
In January, Washington declared an emergency following a measles outbreak that hit 73 people in Clark County and one in King County, where Seattle is.
Fifty-three of the cases are in residents who have not been vaccinated. Thirty-five cases are in children aged 10 years and under.
In New York, since October 2018, there have been at least 371 confirmed cases in Brooklyn, Queens and Rockland County – all in Orthodox Jewish communities.
Just last week, Rockland County in upstate New York took an unusual step and banned unvaccinated people under the age of 18 from being in public places for 30 days.
Officials also declared an emergency. However, the cases are still increasing.
& # 39; People who do not believe in vaccines often have other views that contradict commonly accepted facts of science and medicine, & # 39; write the letter. "Protect yourself, your family, and your community by being careful when interacting with these people."
In January, anti-changers were identified as one of the biggest threats to global health in 2019 by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The anti-vaccine movement was linked to air pollution and climate change, HIV and a worldwide influenza pandemic.
The "vaccine hesitation" that the WHO called it in a statement threatens to reverse progress in tackling vaccine prevention diseases. & # 39;
READ LETTER FULLY
Your neighbor, ______, does not believe in vaccinating himself or her family. This puts anyone at risk if they are medically fragile, immunocompromised or obsolete in their vaccinations.
