Experts: Samoa’s measles outbreak is caused by underimmunisation — not the vaccine itself

Multiple Facebook and Twitter posts claim that the measles vaccine is causing a deadly outbreak of the highly infectious disease in Samoa. People are being “killed off by the vaccine,” claims one post, which were shared by a US-based anti-vaccination activist. The claims are false; it is not biologically possible for the measles vaccine to cause an outbreak of the disease; experts say the Samoa measles outbreak, which has killed more than 70 people according to official statistics, was caused by underimmunisation.
