**Near 0 Deaths Per Year from MMR in the US Over the Last 6 Years. So why do we REQUIRE Kids to Get the Measles Jab?**

By STEVE KIRSCH

*The CDC and WHO claim that the MMR vaccine is the reason there are so few deaths and that the measles vaccines have saved millions of lives. Sorry, not even close. I show you the math. It’s stunning.*

### Executive summary

**It’s the vaccine associated with the most autism in the US.**

Is there a mortality benefit that outweighs the risk?

The answer is no.

Even if you believe everything on the CDC website as to the mortality benefit, the MMR vaccines would **save fewer than 5 lives a year in the US at a cost of over 50,000 new autism cases**.

Yet, all 50 states in the US require some form of measles vaccination for children. The parents are not given a choice. This is insane.

So autism rates continue to skyrocket while measles deaths hover at around 1 per year.

But no lawmaker wants to talk about it because vaccines are sacred cows.

In this article, I’ll show you all the data that backs up what I said above.

The bottom line: **it is absolutely INSANE that all 50 states require measles vaccination. The decision for any health intervention should be up to the parents to make.**

**If you know of any lawmaker anywhere in the world with the courage to raise this issue, please let them know about this article.**

### VAERS: autism association with vaccines

### Estimating the number of autism cases caused by vaccines

That’s huge.

### WONDER: Deaths from measles, mumps, or rubella from 2018 to the present: near 0

Here is the result of my query from MMR deaths from 2018 to the present: **near zero for ages under 85 years old**.

### CDC paper estimating vaccine efficacy on measles mortality is 82% (i.e., 5.6X)

### Let’s do the math!

There is 1 measles death a year in the US (actual numbers, not estimates, from the WONDER results).

If the measles vaccine is as effective as the CDC paper says (82% reduction), then without the measles vaccine, around 5.6 kids will die from measles per year.

We know that vaccines cause around 80% or more of the autism cases and the MMR vaccine is the most dangerous of the bunch causing around 65% of the cases.

So if we had stopped the MMR vaccine, we could potentially have prevented 5.4*.8*.65= 2.8 M cases.

What’s the annual rate? The CDC claims the prevalence today is just 1 in 36 kids. There are around 3.6M kids born a year which means we are generating over 100,000 new autistic kids every year, about half of those from the MMR as we showed above (.8*.65=.52).

So the question we should be asking is this:

“Is saving 5 lives a year better than causing around 52,000 cases of autism per year?”

That’s the question we should be debating!

### Ontario Canada: Just one measles death in over 10 years!

Is this such a problem that we should mandate every kid get an unsafe vaccine that causes autism?

### Where there is risk, there must be choice

As my friend Dr. Robert Malone has often said, “Where there is risk, there must be choice.”

### The full math is more complex

If people stop vaccinating, there will be more cases because measles transmits rapidly (90% of people exposed to an infected person who are not already immune will catch it). The R0 is 12 – 18 which is very high.

Also the IFR for measles is estimated to be 0.1%.

So there could very well be spikes in death if people do not get proper treatment.

Predicting accurately what would happen would be difficult because the models have to be accurate.

For example, about 5% of people don’t seroconvert even if they are vaccinated, so we can e

By giving people the option to vaccinate or not, we can observe what actually happens and adjust the models appropriately.

Also, the measles IFR ca**n likely be reduced by early treatment, **but the medical community may resist such treatments just like they did with the COVID vaccines.

We have an self-proclaimed “expert” on X explain that if we totally stopped all measles vaccination, there would be 500 deaths a year. So that’s the upper bound. This is rounding error compared to other diseases.

There is also the comparison of the risk of morbidity from getting measles (including encephalitis and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) vs. the morbidity from taking the shots. This needs to be examined. This is non-trivial to do correctly.

The bottom line is this: Where is the full cost benefit analysis from the medical community that led to the determination that vaccinating everyone optimizes health outcomes? Have you seen it?

### What do you think?

Potentially up to 5 deaths per year is far preferable to 52,000 cases of autism. So I’d opt for the first answer. But your answer may be different. Let’s find out:
