We spoke with Pediatric Medical Director Lauren Wilson with Inpatient Pediatrics at Community Medical Center about how parents can confirm their children are properly vaccinated. "It is very clear that there is no connection between vaccination and autism", Richards said.

According to the World Health Organization a community needs a minimum of 90% of its members to be vaccinated to help prevent measles outbreaks. The second, called the MMRV vaccine, protects children from measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox.

The mother of a 39-year-old physician, Dr. Kendrick Gotoc, who was inoculated by the vaccine three times prior to his death on April 22, 2018, filed cases of obstruction of justice, reckless imprudence resulting in homicide, torture, and violation of the Consumer Act against Health Secretary Francisco Duque, former DoH chief Janette Garin, and 37 others.

"The increase in the anti-vaccine people is because they have never seen the disease", Leisner said. They can positively influence the immunization coverage by providing the right answers to queries and addressing common misconceptions on the part of the parents and caregivers.

She said those born before 1957 are generally considered immune due to the fact the virus was much more common and those people have probably already had it once.
