Most parents in this country overwhelmingly have their children vaccinated. There are few minor groups for a multiple of reasons that don't. We had an outbreak of 383 cases in Ohio this past year mainly in Amish communities that are all over Ohio. Amish people do not vaccinate. In my school district, before a child can be enrolled in public school, the parent must provide proof their child's vaccinations are up to date. Years later some require boosters and at that time they remind the parent the child's records will need to be updated.
There was a severe outbreak in the Phillipines in 2013-14. These people entering the U.S. from Philippines the CDC claims were part of the source for the rise in number of cases in 2014. And throughout 2014 we had a huge influx of youth coming across our Southern borders from South American countries. Though the vaccination programs in many of these countries have improved greatly in recent years where 1 year olds are now being vaccinated, it hasn't been the case in years past where the majority of children were not vaccinated. There's a real good chance a child 10 years old has never been vaccinated.
