Olympics Could Spark Measles Outbreak, CDC Warns

Posted on March 20th, 2012 by

Officials Tuesday warned that American tourists unvaccinated for measles may become exposed to the virus during trips to the Summer Olympics and the Euro 2012 soccer cup - and that may cause potential outbreaks of the disease in the U.S… "The results have been devastating," said Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic Vaccine Research Group. "The campaign against the vaccine has caused great harm to public health across multiple nations, even though it has no scientific basis."
