  • In recent years, the number of US measles cases has increased, and outbreaks in adults continue to be reported in communities with a high number of unvaccinated people. These trends underscore the need for high overall measles vaccination coverage, and for physicians to entertain the diagnosis of measles in adult patients with a febrile illness and rash. Outbreaks continue to be reported in communities with a high number of unvaccinated people. Most cases are linked to international travel.
