A Texas nurse is out of a job after allegedly sharing patient information on an “anti-vaxxers” Facebook group. Authorities say the nurse posted about a child with measles, describing the symptoms as “much worse” than she expected but saying “I’ll continue along my little non-vax journey with no regrets.”. She also said she “thought about swabbing his mouth and bringing it home to my 13 yo.”
