Livia isn’t sick, but doctors fear she might become the 53rd person to contract measles in a recent Disneyland outbreak. Now she’s in a 28-day quarantine, because of a family that refused to vaccinate their child.
It started January 2, when the Simons took Livia, who had a cold, to the pediatrician. Two days later, the doctor’s office called to say that a child with measles had been in the office that same day.
The Simons feared the worst.
When asked what she would say to parents of the unvaccinated child, she said she would first ask whether their child was doing OK.
Then she would ask them a question: “Hey, you guys, what do you think about vaccines now?”
