One area of particular concern, the US has counted more measles cases in the first two months of 2019 than in all of 2017 - and part of the rising threat is misinformation that makes some parents balk at a crucial vaccine, federal health officials told Congress in late February.
In a hearing on Tuesday, March 5, the student, Ethan Lindenberger, shared what it was like to grow up in a home where vaccines were not permitted with the Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor, and Pensions, Buzzfeed reported.
"I grew up understanding my mother's beliefs that vaccines were risky".
"For certain individuals and organizations that spread this misinformation, they instill fear into the public for their own gain selfishly, and do so knowing that their information is incorrect", Lindenberger said.
Last December, Lindenberger defied his mother and began catching up on his missed vaccinations.
"To combat preventable-disease outbreaks, information is, in my mind, the forefront of this matter".
Also, "we need federal leadership for a national vaccination campaign spearheaded by CDC in partnership with states that counter the anti-vaccine messages, similar to the successful Truth tobacco prevention campaign".

"My mother came in the sense of loving her children and being concerned", Lindenberger told lawmakers Tuesday.
In recent weeks he has become a hero of believers in modern medicine in the United States, where health officials struggle to convince some that their refusal to get themselves or their children vaccinated is fueling a resurgence of measles. In the past, Paul has questioned whether vaccines should be required, and he's parroted anti-vaccine conspiracy theories, such as in 2015, when he said he'd "heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines". The Centers for Disease Control has a web page that reads: "Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism".
"We are constantly reacting to crises rather than working to prevent them", Wiesman said.
While Paul's remarks generated some audience applause, Sen.
According to Dr. Eric Cadesky, is the president of Doctors of BC, he has seen the increase in young patients coming to get vaccinated with his own eyes and he has also heard from other doctors that the panic to get immunized by Canadian youngsters is happening everywhere.
Lindenberger wasn't vaccinated until he took himself to be immunised at 18. Bill Cassidy responded to Paul and referenced how there are some vaccine requirements in place, such as in hospitals. Seventeen states allow parents to opt out of vaccinating their children based on philosophical grounds, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, and all but three-California, Mississippi and West Virginia-allow a child to be exempt from immunization for religious reasons.
"Now if you're such a believer in liberty that you do not wish to be vaccinated then there should be a outcome and that is you can not infect other people", Cassidy said. The spread of measles is exacerbated by what the CDC describes as "U.S. communities with pockets of unvaccinated people".
