Sunday House Call, #707, September 1, 2019: A shot that should be heard and felt around the world. Too bad anti-vaxxers wear ear plugs and have “backfire-effect” armour.
Topics today include:
The measles report. A conglomerate of news stories that show the inexorable increase in measles infections, children dying, hospitals in New Zealand, in the midst of a measles epidemic, are overburdened with other ill children at risk, and countries losing their “measles eradication designation“, the US at risk of losing theirs, all because certain individuals and groups believe the anti-vaccination misinformation. California is proposing the strictest vaccination laws to counter the nonsense.
Your calls about:
- An infected finger
- Low back pain and management
- A 7 year old girl with an itchy groin area.
