    Measles declared eradicated in the U.S. in 2000 — has roared back at a record pace this year, Axios Science editor Andrew Freedman writes.

    • Why it matters: Most Americans have no firsthand experience with measles. That lack of familiarity, along with the online success of the anti-vaccine movement, is letting a deadly but easily preventable virus spread.
    So far in 2019:

    • 695 cases of measles have been confirmed in 22 states.
    • More than 70 new confirmed cases were reported in just the past week.
    • Five states are reporting ongoing outbreaks (California, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Washington state).
    Different vaccine-hesitant communities added together are causing vaccination rates to fall below effective immunity levels, Anthony Fauci, who leads the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, tells Axios.

    • "I think unfortunately the best motivation… is that we’re having these outbreaks and people are really getting seriously ill," Fauci says. "Those are the things that are going to jolt people into reconsidering this."
    Go deeper.
