    Up next on the media scare tactic agenda.

    My yellow fever vaccination has a couple years left before it expires, I had a mild reaction, the injection hurt and I had a mild flu like reaction.

    Yellow Fever in Angola

    What is the current situation?

    The Ministry of Health in Angola has reported an ongoing outbreak of yellow fever. At least 1,708 suspected and confirmed cases have been reported nationally, including 238 deaths. The majority of yellow fever cases and deaths have been in Luanda Province. However, cases have been reported throughout the country. The Ministry is working with the World Health Organization to control the outbreak and has been conducting an emergency vaccination campaign in Luanda Province since early February.
    The government of Angola requires all travelers older than 9 months of age to show proof of yellow fever vaccination upon arrival. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all travelers to Angola aged 9 months or older be vaccinated against yellow fever.
    People who have never been vaccinated against yellow fever should not travel to Angola. Since there is currently a shortage of yellow fever vaccine, travelers may need to contact a yellow fever vaccine provider well in advance of travel. CDC no longer recommends booster doses of yellow fever vaccine for most travelers. However, Angola is currently a higher-risk setting because of the outbreak, so travelers to Angola may consider getting a booster if their last yellow fever vaccine was more than 10 years ago.

    Loosening abortion laws in Brazil wouldn't be such a bad idea. It wouldn't even affect the white population because 99% of us have enough money to get whatever medical procedure we want done - legal or not. It's the people who shouldn't be breeding at all that are breeding the most. And calling our congress "conservative" :facepalm:
    The last thing we need is an entire generation of pin-headed retards.

    The lower classes want legal abortion because the left is telling them it's part of their "human rights".
    The upper classes are more conservative, but not conservative enough to see the eugenic benefits of loosening the restrictions.

    I'm still on the fence about Zika/microcephaly vs. Tdap.

    First baby born with Zika-linked microcephaly in New York tri-state area

    http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/...in-new-york-tri-state-area.html?intcmp=hplnws

    Doctors at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey confirmed Tuesday the birth of a child suffering from Zika-linked microcephaly, a condition wherein the child's brain and head are partially developed.
    The mother, who is 31 but whose name was not disclosed, contracted the Zika virus while in Honduras and was admitted to the emergency room at Hackensack on Friday while vacationing in the United States. Tuesday, doctors delivered her baby girl, who was born also with intestinal and visual issues. Reports indicate she is the first child born with Zika-linked complications in the New York tri-state area.
    The child’s mother, who developed a rash for two days in Honduras but had no other symptoms until arriving in the U.S., was under the care of a surgical team led by Dr. Abdulla Al-Khan and Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor at FoxNews.com and chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Hackensack. A neonatologist and pediatric infectious disease specialist, as well as nursing personnel, were on hand for the birth.
