    284 people
    According to data from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, Americans have received some 126 million doses of measles vaccine in the past dozen years. During that time, 284 people filed claims that they were harmed by those vaccinations, through a federal program created to compensate such people. About half of those claims were dismissed. This “little-known database offers one way to gauge the safety of vaccines,” writes the Times. [The New York Times]

    Headline from LA Times:

    >>Parents who won’t vaccinate their kids turning to home-schooling in California, data show<<

    Excerpt:

    >>In 2016, California implemented one of the strictest immunization laws in the country, requiring that all children be up to date on their vaccinations to attend school unless a doctor says otherwise. . . . The law, however, does not apply to children who are home-schooled, a loophole that parents seem to be increasingly exploiting. Over the past three years, the number of kindergartners who were home-schooled and did not have their shots quadrupled, according to a Times analysis of state data.<<

    Had relatives thinking of moving to Oregon before they found out that Oregon actually monitors home schooled kids compared to where said relatives currently reside (Idaho). They were not looking for additional scrutiny. . . .

    Whoever ran the Twitter account for Chicago Road Runners went on a rather bizarre tweet storm in response to a question Kara Goucher asked, which included a mention of vaccines!
