Measles continue to make big comeback after elimination in 2000

Unvaccinated people in the US and international travelers have caused a measles outbreak in the US. Measles complications can result in death, making the resurgence a serious concern.  Why did Missouri, Indiana, and Colorado have the lowest vaccination rates in the US, according to a CDC study? Is it due to lack of education, limited access or misinformation? The CDC and others are sending out the request for practitioners in these states and throughout the world to provide strong recommendations for vaccinations to help avert an epidemic.
