Fourteen cases of measles were reported to the Styrian provincial health authority and twelve confirmed – more suspected measles: 50 treatments (30.1.2019).
Two partial vaccinations from the ninth month of life further provide lifelong protection against measles, according to the medical profession. The number of inoculations in Styria is 89 for the first vaccination and only 79% for the second vaccine.
It is difficult to undertake a general vaccination
It is difficult to carry out the general vaccination mandate in Italy and France, as it legally limits individual freedom of choice, and the Board of the Graz Children's Hospital, Ernst Eber: "Debt in the true sense of the word is very difficult, because we always have to strive where the freedom of the individual , where there is a benefit to society You do not have to get a 100% vaccine.We just have to survive a 95% barrier and unfortunately we're 15% away from it.

According to Werner Zenz, an infestation in a children's hospital advocating the incentive system, "the opponents of radical immunization – that is, about four percent of the population – would not only engage in educational work," an indirect obligation to vaccinate, for example, to link social benefits with mandatory vaccination. Only a vaccine is not just protection for yourself, but also protection for others, because you do not spread measles – as you can now see in small babies – and it would make sense to reduce any social benefit – for people who do not have vaccinated children. "
Impflücke in young adults
Health Adviser Christopher Drexler (ÖVP) can imagine mandatory vaccine against smallpox in passing mother-child as a suitable means. In the hospital sector there is an adequate obligation to vaccinate staff engaged in intensive medical or surgical patients. The call for free vaccine is from the Styrian Medical Association. Even in young adults there is an Impflücke, which has to be urgently closed.
"130,000 to 160,000 deaths per year"
Given the current wave of measles, Viennese Virologys, Lukas Weseslindtner and Heidemarie Holzmann (MedUni Vienna), point to the study on the measles published in 2015, according to which measles have already weakened the immune system of patients for many years.
The claim that vaccine opponents often raise doubts in favor of the measles vaccine is known that "natural" penetration of the measles "strengthens" the immune system. "It must always be remembered that the measles are not harmless, but have a very high rate of hospitalization and complications (about 20 percent). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), poochies in all age groups in the world still cause between 130,000 and 160,000 deaths annually , the researchers wrote.
Stem Scientist for Contagious Diseases, Werner Zenz, stressed at a press conference on Wednesday: "It is believed that goddesses have beneficial effects after the onset of illness, such as asthma protection and better development, all scientifically denied several times. it does not lead to autism, as is often said. On the contrary, measles disease leads to weaker immune systems up to three years later and can therefore lead to death from other diseases. "
