The United States is seeing a sudden increase in the number of cases of measles. When the measles vaccine was introduced in the early 1960's there was a dramatic decrease in the number of cases in the United States to the point that in 2000 the CDC declared the virus to be eliminated. However, because of an increase in the number of unvaccinated children, there have been an increasing number of cases with 764 reported in 2014 and over 100 cases reported in January 2015. Most of these cases have been seen in unvaccinated adults and children and have been the result of an outbreak starting in Disneyland. Fourteen states have seen cases of measles this year, although none have yet to be reported in Massachusetts. For more information, please click on the link below.
