Intentional Measles Exposure and a Mumps outbreak

Apparently anti-vaxxers think that the way to address an incurable disease is to willfully expose their children to it. To the point that the Department of Health not only had to say it was a bad idea, but also had to tell people to stop asking about Measles Parties.
