Focusing specifically on the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella, researchers from the Bureau of Immunization, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that, despite having been vaccinated, individuals involved in the 2011 New York measles outbreak were still contracting and spreading measles to others – including others who had also been vaccinated.
It was such a damning revelation that even the mainstream media couldn't help but take notice, including Sciencemag.org, which published an article back in April 2014 on the subject entitled, "Measles Outbreak Traced to Fully Vaccinated Patient for First Time." In essence, the MMR vaccine doesn't work as claimed, nor does getting two doses of it, as the CDC claims, provide near-perfect protection against the disease.
"Research reveals that a vaccinated individual not only can become infected with measles, but can also spread it to others who are also vaccinated against it – doubly disproving that the administration of multiple doses of MMR vaccine is '97 percent effective,' as widely claimed," reveals GreenMedInfo.com.
This same report clearly reveals that the first known case of measles transmission during this particular outbreak occurred in a twice-vaccinated individual, underscoring "the need for thorough epidemiologic and laboratory investigation of suspected measles cases regardless of vaccination status," the report concluded.

A similar outbreak that occurred several years later at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign further illustrates the failure of the MMR vaccine to provide true and lasting protection against mumps.
As we reported at the time, dozens of students at the school reportedly came down with mumps – and according to Illinois Department of Public Health Director Nirav Shah, the vast majority of these cases occurred in individuals who had previously been vaccinated with not just one, but two, doses of MMR, as the CDC now advises.
What this suggests is that, just like with measles, the MMR is completely ineffective at protecting against the contraction and spread of mumps – meaning the MMR vaccine is, for all intents and purposes, medically useless.
In addition to not providing protection against the contraction and spread of measles, the MMR vaccine has also been shown to cause measles in some individuals. Scientists working for the CDC's National Center for Infectious Diseases, a program funded by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Vaccine Program, found that the vast majority of people who receive MMR show detectable levels of measles infection inside their bodies.
To be more precise, it's a condition known as measles inclusion body encephalitis, or MIBE, which infects the brain and can potentially lead to death – whereas natural measles infection, as depicted in an old episode of "The Brady Bunch," is typically very mild, much like getting chickenpox.
"The moral of the story is that you can't blame non-vaccinating parents for the morbidity and mortality of infectious diseases when vaccination does not result in immunity and does not keep those who are vaccinated from infecting others," says GreenMedInfo.com.
"In fact, outbreaks secondary to measles vaccine failure and shedding in up to 99% immunization compliant populations have happened for decades."
