681 measles cases across 22 states already in 2019

The way it should be
Number one, we can thank the witless anti-vaxxers for this "estimable" statistic. Second, the number represents a figure that has "surpassed the highest number on record since the disease was declared eliminated nationwide in 2000." I rest my case right here on whether these idiot parents should be rounded up and placed in a concentration camp where they can happily spread their diseases among like minds. The states involved are...
Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington.
Health officials have said,  'Most of the cases that we're seeing are in unvaccinated communities,' with this statement from  Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the CDC...
"I do believe that parents' concerns about vaccines leads to undervaccination, and most of the cases that we're seeing are in unvaccinated communities."
A person knowledgeable with the measles dilemma said that in the recent cases of measles counted, "72% are unvaccinated, and 18% have an unknown vaccination status." Further "The CDC says 91.5% of US children aged 19 months to 35 months received at least one dose of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine in 2017, the most recent year available." Since the anti-vaxxer crusade is a relatively recent event, it is possible that the figure of 91.5% could be higher now. Many of the outbreaks are linked to travelers who were infected and brought measles back from other countries... 
"For instance, the outbreak in New York, which was declared a public health emergency this month, began when an unvaccinated child became infected while visiting Israel, according to health officials."
CNN reports...
"Experts recommend that children receive the vaccine in two doses: first between 12 months and 15 months of age and a second between 4 and 6 years old."
There could be reactions, but doctors say, " "the benefits outweigh the risks when it comes to the measles vaccine." Why can't the uninformed anti-vaxxing retards understand this?
