Despite vaccination rates for most illnesses staying the same as previous years, or even increasing slightly, Measles-Mumps-Rubella coverage continues to decline.
As a result, measles cases are far more common in the last few years than they were in the last decade.
What this points to is the resurgence of a virus that was almost completely eradicated due to declining vaccination rates. People with auto-immune diseases and infants too young to be vaccinated are also put at risk by increasing numbers of measles cases.
