An outbreak of mumps in students at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ infecting only fully vaccinated students.
Alternative Free Press previously reported that Mumps outbreaks this year in Ohio & New York was only infecting the vaccinated population. At Fordham University in New York City all students are required to be vaccinated including the vaccination for mumps, measles, and rubella (MMR), but as of February 21st, 13 cases of the mumps had been reported with 100% of those infected having already been vaccinated. In Ohio, as of March 24th there were 63 reported cases & 97% of those infected had been vaccinated.
Now it is being reported that 8 out of 8 cases at Stevens Institute of Technology were all were fully vaccinated with two documented doses of mumps-containing vaccine. The vaccine simply does not provide real immunity, it only provides a temporary increase in protective serum titers. This is covered in much more detail in our previous article.
In the following video Dr Obukhanych, an Immunologist who earned her PhD in Immunology at the Rockefeller University in New York and did postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School and Stanford University, explains how protective serum titers drop very quickly after the second MMR dose, meaning some vaccinated people do not receive any lasting protection from the MMR vaccine.
