Seven cases of measles were confirmed in DuPage County, Illinois by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Health authorities have suggested that none of the children who were diagnosed with the diseases had received adequate vaccinations. Reasons for this suggested in the article (link below) were for religions reasons or because people think vaccines cause autism (silly americans!). This makes a total of 64 cases identified in the US between January and April, 2008--the largest outbreak in the last 7 years in this country.
