Yes it is.
And yes, they’re still very contagious.
Israel is in the midst of a deadly outbreak of the measles, the vaccine for which was only partially effective. The government has announced a campaign to vaccinate as many children as possible, and that includes schoolchildren. The goal: to prevent more than 40,000 deaths. The government has pledged $500 million to help fund the campaign.
While there are some who disagree on whether or not to vaccinate against the disease, most agree that getting this vaccine should be the only way to prevent the disease. This is because the death rate from the disease is so high that it’s impossible to prevent a death before it happens. And even if measles were not such a deadly disease, we would still need to vaccinate every child that needs it. There are other ways to stop the spread of the measles than vaccination.
There are many reasons you should vaccinate your child for measles. It’s for the sake of the child, as well as for the sake of other children that can’t get it. But the two biggest reasons are that measles is highly contagious and that it causes a number of serious diseases in its victims. When a person with measles is in public, there is a high risk of being infected and a number of serious diseases can result.
This is where the measles vaccine comes in very handy. For some reason, many people have mis-imagined that the vaccine is needed to protect the child from the measles virus. It’s not needed at all. The virus is naturally occurring and it’s not contagious. So, if a person who is infected has a child with measles, the child will have no issue whatsoever. This is a very common misconception that people have.
It is true that the measles virus is a highly contagious disease, that is why it is important that everyone who is at risk for it, has a vaccine. However, there is absolutely no reason for parents to be afraid of the measles virus. The measles virus is naturally occurring and is not contagious.
The measles virus is spread through the air by wind and therefore is very unlikely to be spread through the air by a virus. If there is a measles outbreak there would definitely be an airborne virus outbreak, but it would be impossible for the virus to spread from person to person. The measles virus is not airborne, and therefore is not contagious.
The measles virus is caused by a virus (measles virus). It is not contagious and is not spread through the air.
It’s about time the people of Israel became aware they are infected and want to fight against the measles virus.
