Cost of an anti- vaxxer measle outbreak

Just a few days ago the Phactor commented on the health risk of the anti-vaccination movement, but Mike the Mad Biologist, one of my favorite crazy/angry (?) people, calculates the cost of just one small out break of measles. Even a tiny out break generates a huge cost that everyone pays for. So it's time for the public to wake up and put an end to the anti-vax stupidity. But what truly scrolls my nerd is that such a huge number of health care workers have not been vaccinated! Sorry, but people that stupid/foolish shouldn't be working in health care. And are you at greater risk of contacting an infected person in that line of work? Duh!
