It is scary, though. According to the news down here, this strain of the measles seems to be pretty brutal. There are more hospitalizations than they were expecting. Of course, that could just be because so many in the medical community have never seen measles. I'm worried because my kid isn't fully protected yet, as she hasn't had the 2nd vax yet. My doctor recommends it at 5, but we're probably going to get it sooner.
