A local man is finally deciding to get his measles shot, thanks to all this vaccine chatter that’s been going on.

As the world continues to discuss the COVID-19 vaccine, Matt Murkson, 30, has decided after much thought that he is ready to get his measles vaccine, something he declined as an infant.

“I’ve done my research now,” Murkson said. “I was too wary at 9 months old. I wasn’t sure, maybe it caused autism. I mean, I was just a baby. I didn’t know anything. Now I think it’s probably a good idea.”

He has not commented yet on the COVID-19 vaccine.
