Universal Immunization Critical To Prevent Outbreaks, Such As Measles

Washington Post: As measles cases increase, a sharp call for vaccinations
“Even when there are significant gains against infectious diseases, there can be reversals. … The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that there have already been more [measles] cases this year [in the U.S.], 288, than in any full year this century. … A nation’s borders provide no ironclad defense against viruses and bacteria. But measles can be stopped with comprehensive and proper immunization” (5/29).
