So what you're saying is that if the probability of contracting Measles is less than .002, you should not get the vaccine.

P.S. I think the bills on the left are counterfeit. If not they're worth far more than face value so the odds change significantly.

The government no longer prints new bills in denominations larger than $100.

And bills are no longer "redeemable in gold at the United States Treasury". But those are what the bills used to look like.

As far as measles goes, the odds of contracting it go up the more people don't get the vaccine. Plus it's a matter of protecting the people who don't get it.

I think the government ought to pay for vaccines though, since there are positive externalities when people get vaccinated. It helps everyone, not just the person receiving the vaccine.

And now . . . the REST of the story:

Parents convicted of killing child

A Canadian jury has convicted David and Collet Stephan of a criminal charge of "failing to provide the necessaries of life" to their 18-month son, Ezekiel, who died of bacterial meningitis while they treated him for 2½ weeks with hot peppers, garlic, onions, and horseradish and a product from a naturopath said to be aimed at boosting his immune system.

Couple convicted of killing their child get sentenced

Canadians David and Collet Stephan, who were convicted of a criminal charge of "failing to provide the necessaries of life" to their 19-month son, Ezekiel, have been sentenced. [Bell D. David Stephan gets jail time, Collet Stephan gets house arrest in son's meningitis death CBC News, June 24, 2016]

    David was ordered to serve four months in prison.
    Collet was ordered to serve three months on house arrest and to post an unedited copy of the sentencing hearing to all Web and social media sites with which she is personally affiliated.
    Both were ordered to complete 240 hours of community service.
    The couple's three other children must see a medical doctor at least once a year and a public health nurse every three months.

Press reports indicate that Ezekiel died of bacterial meningitis while they treated him for 2½ weeks with hot peppers, garlic, onions, and horseradish and a product from a naturopath said to be aimed at boosting his immune system. [Alberta parents convicted in toddler's meningitis death. CBC News, April 26, 2016] Before the sentencing hearing, Collet urged her Facebook supporters to send handwritten letters to her lawyer “regarding Dave and myself’s parenting character, concern for our children losing us and how this verdict will affect your parental rights.” David is vice-president of Truehope Nutritional Support, a company that markets “natural remedies."

Vaccination crusader honored and libeled.

Paul Offit, M.D., has received the American Academy of Pediatrics President's "Certificate for Outstanding Service," in recognition of his ongoing commitment to promote immunization." Offit, a pediatrician, is chief of infectious diseases and the director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. His 2008 book, Autism's False Prophets, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/ ... ckwatch-20 exposed the opportunism of lawyers, journalists, celebrities, practitioners, politicians, and miscellaneous cranks who are promoting the myth that vaccines cause autism. Vaccine opponents, enraged by both the book and the award, have responded by making false and misleading statements about him.

Isn't Offit the goofball who said getting 10,000 vaccines would not harm you?
