Assistant Surgeon General, Dr. Anne Schuchat said: "84 percent of the recent cases were not vaccinated or didn’t know their status. Of the unvaccinated, 68 percent had personal belief exemptions or opted out. The most at risk from measles, she noted, are infants too young to be vaccinated. “We need clinicians and parents to do their part.”
Vaccination coverage has remained near or above 90% for most vaccines, but measles has gotten off to an early and active start this year; 129 cases have been reported from 13 states—the most reported in the first four months since 1996. California (58), New York City (24), and Washington state (13) have seen the majority of outbreaks, defined as three or more related cases.

Should people be vaccinated? Yes. Only an idiot would argue otherwise.
Yes but there are more and more people not getting vaccinated every year. It's a growing trend and a movement that's gaining steam.
