Viruses, Vol. 11, Pages 636: Measles Vaccine Virus RNA in Children More Than 100 Days after Vaccination
We report detection and confirmation of MeVV RNA from the respiratory tract of 11 children between 100 and 800 days after most recent receipt of measles-containing vaccine. These novel findings emphasize the importance of genotyping all MeV detections and highlight the need for further work to assess whether persistent MeVV RNA represents viable virus and if transmission to close contacts can occur.
The high — and rising — rate of nonmedical vaccine exemptions has left major metropolitan areas vulnerable to measles outbreaks; other states have similar pockets of undervaccinated schoolchildren.Medscape Medical News
Around 90,000 five-year-olds in England are not fully up to date with the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, according to data from Public Health England.
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 21, 2019 -- Texas cities are in danger of major measles outbreaks because an alarming number of school kids are unvaccinated, researchers warn. Vaccination rates in the state have declined since 2003 and a computer simulation by...

MEASLES is a childhood infection and one of the most infectious viral illnesses known to man. A recent drop in vaccination rates has seen a rise in cases, and Dr Chris Steel took to ITV ’s This Morning to warn of the serious, and sometimes life-threatening, complications measles can lead to if you don't get the jab.
Urgent action has been ordered to improve vaccination uptake after more than 230 cases of measles were reported in the UK during first quarter of 2019. Actions to achieve this include NHS England writing to GPs and strengthening role of local immunisation coordinators.

Wegene Borena Measles elimination has been identified as a public health priority in Europe for a long time but has not yet been achieved. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends identification of susceptible sub-populations to target supplementary immunization activities. We used three different sources of information: retrospective samples investigated for measles IgG between 1997 and 2016, vaccine coverage data from the existing electronic registry for birth cohorts 2015 to 1999, and surveillance data from 2009 until 20 July 2019. We calculated susceptibility by birth cohort using seroprevalence data, adjust...
Over 230 measles cases were reported in the UK in the first quarter of the year.
