By MICHAEL EINSTEIN and MARIANNE WALLACEAssociated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — The U.N. says the United States is the largest country in the world to get a measles vaccine, adding to the country’s growing tally of U.K. and Canadian users.
The U.F.O. has released the new figures on Wednesday as countries in the U!
N.s Global Alliance for Vaccines, Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) gather in New York to announce a slate of new vaccines and immunizations.
The United States has been among the top five countries in global vaccination rates, the United Nations said in a report.
But in the past five years, it’s fallen short of the U!.
N. average of 82 percent, as it has seen its uptake of vaccines decline and its rate of vaccine uptake increase, the report said.
The WHO says it’s expected to announce its vaccines for the first time later this year.
has seen an increase in cases of the virus, the first increase in more than two years.
There have been at least 3,944 cases in the United State, and the total number of confirmed cases of measles in the country rose to 4,065, according to the report.
The number of cases rose to 2,737, with 4,926 confirmed cases.
In Britain, where the vaccine was approved last year, there have been 1,636 cases and 1,743 confirmed cases, the WHO said.
In Canada, which has seen a surge in measles cases and is home to more than 10 million people, the number of measles cases rose 10 percent from the previous week to 3,836, including 887 cases.
In the U.-S.
relationship with the United Kingdom, the country is the third-largest buyer of the vaccine after the U., which gets the vaccine, and Canada, the second-largest seller, the U!, said in its report.
Canada’s vaccination rate has remained steady since 2013, but in 2018 there were an estimated 3,700 new cases of infection and 2,200 new cases requiring hospitalization.
Britain, where vaccination rates have risen dramatically in recent years, has had a vaccination rate of 92 percent since the start of the year.
The report comes as lawmakers and health officials are pushing to get more Americans vaccinated, with one-third of adults and a quarter of children under age 5 receiving the vaccine.
At least 2,700 U.M. students were vaccinated in the first three months of 2018, including 463 who got the vaccine at school.
About 90 percent of the 3,100 students in grades 6 through 12 received a booster dose, with the rest receiving a placebo.
The vaccine has been shown to be more effective in reducing the risk of getting the virus.
