As we continue to see a resurgence of measles and other preventable diseases, it is essential to understand the impact of collective amnesia on virus outbreaks. Many people have forgotten the devastating effects these diseases can have, leading to a decrease in vaccine uptake and leaving communities vulnerable.

Experts are urging individuals to consider getting an MMR booster to protect themselves and others from measles, mumps, and rubella. This simple step can help prevent the spread of the virus and ultimately save lives. Additionally, increasing vaccine uptake for all is crucial in building herd immunity and stopping the transmission of these diseases.

From the Class of 1980 to the Class of 2021, alumni experts are sharing their insights on the importance of vaccination and the role it plays in public health. They emphasize the need for education and awareness to combat the spread of misinformation surrounding vaccines.

It is important to remember the lessons of the past and not fall prey to collective amnesia when it comes to virus outbreaks. By staying informed, getting vaccinated, and encouraging others to do the same, we can work together to protect our communities and prevent future outbreaks. Let’s learn from history and take action to ensure a healthier future for all.
