During the week ending March 18, 1967, 2,541 cases
of measles were reported. This total does not include the
report from Hawaii, which was delayed. Nineteen states
reported 10 or fewer cases. Fifty percent of the total was
reported by three states: California 285; Texas 693;

reached a plateau early in February which appears to be
continuing (Figure 1). There is an absence of the usual
increased incidence which in previous years occurred late

i.phIht.-r; toxoids (Td) are recommended at 10-year
