Tetyana Obukhanych has a PhD in immunology but has somehow become antivaccine. This week, she tried to refute two recent studies on immune amnesia induced by measles virus infection. Let’s just say that it did not go well.
Two new studies, this time finding immune amnesia due to measles, show why measles is serious and you should vaccinate your children. That’s right, contrary to antivax claims, “natural infection” with measles doesn’t “boost the immune system.” Quite the contrary!
