Brady Bunch Actress Not Happy Her Likeness Being Used by Anti-Vaxxers

Measles were declared eliminated in 2000, but the virus is back and most of the blame is being placed at the feet of anti-vaxxers.

But the anti-vaxxers maintain that it's not a big deal, and some of them are using a 1969 episode of The Brady Bunch as proof.

The episode "Is There a Doctor In the House?" shows each of the Brady kids (spoiler alert: and Alice) contract the measles and enjoy some time off from school. Marsha even declares "If you have to get sick, sure can't beat the measles."

Maureen McCormick, who played Marsha, isn't happy that her likeness, or the show she's known for, is being used to promote the anti-vaccination agenda.

McCormick talked with NPR and told them her experience with the measles as a child was very different than the one depicted on the show. She says she got very sick.
