Measles vaccine: 5 percent drop in childhood vaccination levels would cause annual cases to triple
from Outbreak News Today
Small reductions in childhood measles vaccinations in the United States would produce disproportionately large increases in the number of measles cases and in related public health costs, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Baylor College of Medicine. A 5 percent drop in the number of children ages 2 to 11 inoculated against the measles, mumps and rubella would triple the number of annual measles cases in this age group, the study found.
