Measles in Bolivia: A ‘honeymoon period’

Abstract

This study found a high prevalence of measles susceptibility in Bolivian children. Thus, herd immunity may not have been established, and some outbreak could occur. Authorities should redress this situation before endemic measles transmission occurs nationally and regionally, and there is an urgent need to conduct more seroprevalence studies in the region.
