Amid the coronavirus pandemic, some parents are worried that not everyone will get their MMR immunizations.
Global public health leaders said more than 100-million children may not get their measles vaccination because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Measles and Rubella Initiative found 24-low and middle-income countries paused or postponed national immunization programs due to the pandemic.
It’s a major concern, mostly due to the infection potential in those places.
Pediatricians said they are seeing significant drops in well-child visits as well as for routine vaccinations, which could pose an even greater long-term problem.
The World Health Organization reported an estimated 9.7 million cases of measles in 2018, along with more than 142,000 deaths.
