More than 700 cases of measles in Quebec

CTV Montreal – More than 700 cases of measles in Quebec – CTV News.

For the first time since 2007 Quebec is dealing with a widescale measles outbreak.

Vaccination rates against measles have dropped since 1998, when a medical researcher faked research and falsely claimed there was a link between a preservative used in a measles vaccine and autism.

That research has since been thoroughly discredited, the journal that published the study has apologized, and the doctor involved has been stripped of his medical license.
