Although the virus was eliminated from the country in 2000, meaning it was no longer continually present year round, outbreaks still happen via travelers coming from countries where measles is still common, the CDC says.
As of May 3, 2019, NYC had issued fines to 3 individuals and a network of schools, which now owes more than $2,400 in fines for non-compliance, confirmed to NY Daily News.
The Medical Society of the State of NY, along with more than two dozen medical and public health organizations and patient advocacy groups, descended on Albany to make their case against non-medical measles vaccination exemptions.
More than 764 cases of measles have been reported throughout the United States in 2019, the Center for Disease Control reported Monday.
"Another factor contributing to the outbreaks in NY is misinformation spreading in some counties about the safety and effectiveness of the MMR vaccine". It's the most in the US since 1994, when 963 were reported. And, infants ages 6 to 11 months should also receive a dose of a measles vaccine before traveling internationally, since various countries are reporting extensive measles outbreaks'.
Federal health officials say a vocal fringe of USA parents who refuse to vaccinate their children have propelled the outbreak, which has mostly affected children who have not received the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, which confers immunity to the disease. "It's putting children at risk and other people at risk who are vulnerable to severe measles if you're not vaccinating your own child".
But the Reuters/Ipsos poll showed USA adults by a wide majority share the scientific consensus that the highly contagious and sometimes deadly disease is unsafe, while vaccines are safe. Doctors recommend that adults who are unsure of their immunity should get tested and then get the vaccine if needed.
