disney requires vaccinations

ORLANDO, FL – In a bold and unprecedented response to the recent measles outbreak at Disneyland, Disney execs announced yesterday that they will institute a new policy to safeguard staff and visitors from communicable diseases.

“Sorry Tim, you aren’t vaccinated, so we can’t go to Disney World”

Effective immediately, an up-to-date immunization record or a letter from a physician stating legitimate reasons for not receiving vaccines, must be presented in order to purchase a valid park pass.  This hard-line approach comes after dozens of confirmed measles cases have been linked to unvaccinated visitors to Disneyland over the past few weeks.

Rob Eager, Disney’s CEO, held a press conference to make the announcement and answer questions yesterday.  “Let’s be honest, there is nothing worse for a tourism-based business than the implication that the visitor could get sick just by being there.  Just ask Royal Caribbean Cruise lines, after a recent outbreak of the Norovirus on one of their ships, bookings went down 200% for the next four months.  We want all Disney visitors to experience magic, fun, and excitement.  There isn’t anything magical about the measles.”

Anti-vaxxers are already planning protests outside all Disney theme park gates, with signs stating “Hell No, We Want Polio,” and “Diptheria Ain’t All That Bad.”  There are also reports of an Anti-Vaxxer Theme Park being planned in nearby Kissimmee, FL.  The new park will have rides called “The Hib Flume,” “Pertussis Pirate Adventure,” and “Varicella Vortex,” among others.

    They’re also probably more likely to have their vaccinations UTD. Although the anti-vaxxer movement is prevalent in other countries as well, it seems to the in the US that it’s taken on an especially strong (and fervent) stronghold.

    Not true. Vaccinations don’t guarantee adequate antibody synthesis to yield immunity. The most common example of this would be Hep B… many healthcare workers have to get their titers done to prove immunity to this, and will find that their Ab levels are low despite having had a full sequence.

    This is an example of where EVERYONE may have to rely on herd immunity. If you’ve been given your shots, you’re much more likely to have immunity, but it’s not certain.

    Why not both?

    If only this were true.
