No Forced Vaccines Statement to TV 3 on Measles Cases May 24. 2016

Introduction:

On May 23, 2016, Lachlan Forsyth, a reporter for TV3 news, emailed through the Contact Form on the No Forced Vaccines website asking whether No Forced Vaccines could provide a statement or whether a spokesperson would like to be interviewed for a news item on the recent measles cases.

No Forced Vaccines spokeswoman emailed back indicating her willingness to be interviewed and/or to provide a written statement.

On May 24 Mr. Forsyth asked No Forced Vaccines to provide a written statement in response to a claim made by the Ministry of Health that the recent measles cases “shows the importance of widespread vaccination, and that the virus is currently able to spread due to pockets of the population where vaccination rates are lower.”
