Do Vaccines Need a Shot in the Arm?

Well, duh. A public health emergency has been issued. A highly contagious and possibly fatal virus -- one that has been dominating the headlines -- has been confirmed and observed near Lake County. Residents are instructed to stay indoors until further notice.

Does your LakeCountyEye refer to the recent measles outbreak? Nope -- your LakeCountyEye refers to Ebola.

Haha, j/k -- it's really the measles.

Those Operatives (who have been living in a plastic bubble) should be aware that infectious diseases are like 45 rpm records. And that the measles just knocked Ebola off the top of the charts.

A vaccine has been available since 1963, and it was believed that the measles had been eradicated in the United States. Well, guess again. Anyone not immune is urged to be vaccinated. The only exception are infants less than a year old, and residents of Wauconda, where it is believed that ...
vaccines have chemicals "that are very harmful to your neurotoxins."

But if you are anything like your LakeCountyEye, then nothing says 100% total immunity better than a full hazardous material suit. Luckily, the leading manufacturer of hazmat outfits is located right in the middle of Lake County:

And as a consequence, Lake County is measles-free:

This same leading manufacturer had been threatening to move out of Lake County. If they did move to Wisconsin or Indiana, there is no telling which infectious diseases would be coursing through Lake County today. Fortunately, the Governor intervened:
Medline Industries, the giant medical supply distributor in the northern suburbs, has agreed to keep its headquarters in Illinois in exchange for nearly $18 million in tax credits from the Quinn administration. The Mundelein-based firm, one of the largest private companies in the state, also plans to add at least 200 jobs in Lake County and spend at least $60 million expanding operations statewide, according to a statement from Gov. Pat Quinn.

Lake County is grateful to have a Governor who cares about the health of his State. And not some uber-billionaire with a record of outsourcing jobs, who cares only about being the next Vice President of the United States.
