You can order a coffee at the drive-thru. You can get a breakfast sandwich at a drive-thru. Well now add measles vaccines to the list of “convenience items” you can get while never even getting out of your car. At least, if you live in Nevada County, California, where a recent case of measles shut down an entire school. According to wdam.com, the move is a reaction to the school’s shutdown as well as very low vaccination rates that in some places are almost half the population.

County health officials are using one case of measles, which did not result in death or injury, to create a state of fear. At this rate, vaccination stations will be at every corner. They might as well put them inside of restaurants near the host stands. Don’t be surprised if they don’t use this one case of harmless measles to begin sending health officials door to door. These situations are often used as a nefarious opportunity. There is absolutely no need for anyone to use a drive-thru measles vaccination station.
