Measles attack is a good example of this because of the vaccine missed in US children. Many children missed the vaccine due to the outbreak of the epidemic in the country. In April 2019, the Center for Disease and Prevention reported the highest number of cases of measles in the US since 2000, where the disease was eradicated domestically.
