2. There's a knock-on effect with measles, too.

If you contract measles, your immune system's probably impaired for years. One consequence is that you could contract a disease you were actually immunized against.

Note that the blond kid with the measles in the oregonlive.com link is a stock image, the same one from 2015 in the discovermagazine.com link, not of any of the kids actually infected.
