How to use measles in a sentence?

  1. Roberto Burioni:

    Italy's measles vaccine coverage was par with Namibia, lower than Ghana, but the law was working, the coverage was improving. We should strengthen it, not weaken it. Now, children who are not vaccinated will endanger other children at school who are too small for vaccines or can not be vaccinated because they suffer from immunosuppressive diseases.

  2. Paul Offit:

    Do we have to wait until there's a few thousand cases of measles and children start to die. Will that move us ? invariably it is the children who will suffer from our ignorance.

  3. Joel Wertheim:

    The split between measles and rinderpest is clearly underestimated.

  4. Lindsey Graham:

    For a federal mandate to come about for measles or any other particular illness or disease you'd have to convince me it was necessary, but the question is, is there scientific evidence to justify a politician suggesting that vaccinations programs we have today are unsound? My answer is no.

  5. William Schaffner:

    Measles kills, and it’s also the easiest to catch. It’s the single most transmissible virus we know, and that accounts for the fact that it’s spreading so rapidly among these kids.
