    Illinoi should vaccinate those 60,000 illegal Obama kids from Central America,that were distributed in every State.Adult Pinoy who immigrated from PH might need 2nd vaccination, because strength of measles vaccination from childhood wear off over time. Tatang if you are over 60 yrs old, you need 2nd vaccination, don’t die yet because the Democrat need your vote.
