USA Today refers to anti-vaccine movement

Preventable diseases such as measles, mumps and whooping cough were thought to be nearly wiped out in the U.S. until recently, and health officials are blaming an anti-vaccination movement for a recent spike in cases. 

In just 3 months, more than 100 measles cases have been reported nationwide, according to the CDC, which says it is nearly double the number of cases seen in an average year.

Some parents opting not to vaccinate their children cite religious or personal beliefs or believe the vaccinations can cause autism.
