"Eliminated" Measles Imported By Kids To United States

It seems that our children need to be vaccinated for measles earlier in life. In just the first two months of the year, 13 people in the U.S. contracted measles as a result of international travel, many of them young children according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC. Although measles was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 2000, imported cases continue to occur among travelers returning from parts of the world where the disease is endemic.
