Gentlemen: Start your ... needles?

Courtesy FoB Holly R:

"Some fans attending Sunday's Indianapolis 500 can get measles vaccines at the track's infield medical center."

This comes as the CDC has issued a warning about the increasing incidence of the once-eradicated disease:

"From January 1 to April 26, 2019, 704 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 22 states including Indiana. This is an increase of 78 cases from the previous week."

At least one fan's not worried though. Local Indy aficionado Mike Dean's theory is "I think if you drink enough beer, it kind of inhibits the measles virus, so that’s been my defense."
