The "anti-vaxxers" movement still thrives in many pockets of the United States. It is also easily preventable through vaccination. Most importantly, at least 95% of every population needs to be immune, through two doses of vaccination or prior exposure to the virus, to ensure community protection for everyone - including babies too young to be vaccinated and others who can not be immunized due to existing diseases and medical conditions.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease - it now prevents 2-3 million deaths a year, and a further 1.5 million could be avoided if global coverage of vaccinations improved. However, there are 11 people who display symptoms of measles and are awaiting the results of blood work to confirm the diagnosis. "There are some more isolated, unvaccinated communities, for example the Amish, where we haven't seen a major outbreak".
Despite availability of safe and cost-effective vaccines since the 1960s, more than 100,000 people die globally from the illness each year - the majority of whom are children younger than five years old in developing countries. According to the World Health Organization, before the introduction of measles vaccination in 1963, the virus caused 2.6 million deaths every year.
