2.    Other than a few of what we consider to be the most important ones, blog articles will no longer be posted in “all the news”. Click here, however, for the complete list of blogs or on the button to the left.

3.    Autism and health articles that are not related to vaccination will no longer be regularly posted in the news.

4.    We will no longer be doing the calendar or updating the Wakefield page.

Utah tallies costs as measles outbreak runs its course - "And beyond that is "the fear and anger of thousands of people who feel their rights have been compromised by a few," said Rep. Carol Spackman Moss, D-Holladay, who is weighing reforms to the state’s immunization law. To attend public school in Utah, children must show proof that they are up-to-date on their shots. But parents can seek exemptions for philosophical and religious reasons, or if a licensed physician determines that a specific vaccine would endanger a student’s life or health. "I’m not sure how much political capital I want to invest in something that’s bound to stir up a hornet’s nest," Moss said. "But at same time, there’s a lot of interest in the community here." Instead of an outright ban on personal exemptions, Moss is considering imposing a fee on families who choose to skip shots. The fee — similar to taxes on other health nuisances, such as cigarettes — could be used to fund outbreak containment efforts, she said."

Salt Lake County measles outbreak runs its course - "The impact of these nine cases should not be underestimated," said Dr. Dagmar Vitek, medical officer for the SLVHD. "This outbreak brought a lot of awareness to the issues surrounding school immunization exemptions and their impact on a total community."
