    for all the studies on seroconversion and vaccines, and of course the rates vary widely by vaccine--so I'm not sure what data you need about the immunized.  Not everyone who is immunized gets immunity.  Here are some examples:

    But here's one specific one about measles:

    Measles outbreak in a vaccinated school population: epidemiology, chains of transmission and the role of vaccine failures.

    An outbreak of measles occurred in a high school with a documented vaccination level of 98 per cent. Nineteen (70 per cent) of the cases were students who had histories of measles vaccination at 12 months of age or older and are therefore considered vaccine failures.

    That may have been a bad batch of vaccine, which can also happen.

    Therefore, immunized people can be susceptible.  In places with more of the unvaccinated, the risk is higher that they'll be exposed.

      your hard work on behalf of furthering the education of this Kossack.

      Obviously, we both live our lives based on science,. not alternative science -- whatever that's supposed to mean.

      People need to get immunized.  Parents should be required to immunize their children before the kids can attend public school as a simple public health imperative.

      Those parents who wish to adopt an alternative lifestyle when it comes to immunizing their children must be prepared to extend that alternative lifestyle when it comes to educating their children.  They should not be allowed in public school without standard immunizations against communicable diseases.

      Period.

      They burn our children in their wars and grow rich beyond the dreams of avarice.

        A whole lot, but not all, of the anti-vaccination crowd homeschool their kids and their anti-immunization stance is one reason they do.
