Good #IDchat. Thanks, all.
RT @Laurie_Garrett: Language is tough, but the message is right: VACCINES WORK (shouted), so get over yourselves: http://pocketfulofgeek.tumblr.com/post... https://twitter.com/Laurie_...
RT @IDchat1: it's also about leadership. We need physicians, nurses, etc, to speak up on how vaccines save lives #idchat @apc_md @IDDocHymes @ZacharyHoy
RT @IDDocHymes: .@IDchat1 @TimLaheyMD mandatory vaccines? At the federal level? #hahahaha #aguycandream #idchat
RT @IDchat1: measles: airborne transmission still possible up to 2 hours after infected person left the area. very contagious #idchat
RT @IDchat1: Measles was eliminated in the United States through high vaccination coverage -- but now it's coming back :( #idchat
Vaccine coverage crucial. Even people with 2 doses MMR can (very rarely) get sick/transmit. See http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content... #IDchat
Lots of uncertainty among practitioners who haven’t seen measles or dealt with exposures. #IDchat
NYC measles outbreak now >25 cases. Many times that many exposures. Concentrated in northern Manhattan. #IDchat
Have seen more measles/measles exposures in the past month than in the past 15 years. #IDchat

RT @PatSchloss: @gramstain microbiota=individual bugs and microbiome=the community. At least that's how we try to differentiate. distinction w/o a diff?
Hard (and expensive!) to set up germ-free facilities. Big barrier to entry in field. #IDchat
Can I make a terminology pitch? microbiota=microbial communities/species. microbiome=collection of genes from microbiota. #IDchat
T1 (cont): Evidence from animal models interesting. Most human data so far is cross-sectional — very hard to draw real conclusions. #IDchat
