A total of 90 cases of clinical encephalitis with con-
firmatory or presumptive laboratory evidence and 45 sus-
pect cases with inconclusive or pending data have been
reported from Dallas through September 6, 1966. There
have been 11 deaths. In addition, 25 cases of clinically
diagnosed aseptic meningitis or febrile headache have
presumptive laboratory evidence for St. Louis encephalitis
virus infection. The criteria for the confirmed category is
a fourfold increase in CF antibody titer, and for the pre-
sumptive, a CF or HI antibody titer of 1:10 or greater.
Corpus Christi for the same period has reported 48
laboratory confirmed or presumptive cases of encephalitis

and 28 suspect cases of clinical encephalitis with incon-

Aerospraying with Malathion was completed in Dallas
on August 27 and in Corpus Christi on August 29. It is
still too soon to detect a definite reduction in the inci-
dence of human disease related to this spraying operation.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


SEPTEMBER 3, 19fi


CURRENT TRENDS
MEASLES 1966


A total of 178,559 cases of measles was reported in
the United States during the first 26 weeks of 1966,
48,938 fewer than the total for the comparable period of
1965 and the lowest total in the preceding 10-year period
(Figures 1 and 2). It is of interest that the progressive
decline follows the availability of measles vaccine.
The Middle Atlantic, East North Central and East
South Central Divisions, however, reported more cases of
measles during the first half of 1966 than of 1965. New
York City in the Middle Atlantic Region, Indiana, Illinois
and Wisconsin in the East North Central Division, and
Kentucky and Tennessee in the East South Central
Division accounted for the majority of increases reported
from their respective regions.
During the first 24 weeks of 1966, seven states
reported 61.9 percent of the total measles cases, compared
to 41.1 percent and 46.3 percent of the totals for the same
periods in 1965 and 1964, respectively (Table 1). Approxi-
mately 51 percent of the total measles cases reported in
the first 24 weeks of 1966 were concentrated in 70 out of
2,072 counties or health districts in 35 states, each of
which recorded 500 or more cases. Only 23.2 percent of
the population of the U.S. resides in these areas. Local-
ized outbreaks of measles occurred in rural as well as
urban areas, as the populations of the 70 counties or
health districts range from 15,720 to over one million.
Measles Deaths
During the 10-year period 1955-64, there has been an
average of 421 deaths per year, with a low of 364 in

1963 and a high of 552 in 1958. The West South Central,
South Atlantic and East North Central Divisions had the
highest ratios of deaths due to measles per 1,000 pop-
ulation between 1960 and 1964. Data on these deaths are
not currently available concerning the frequency of the par-
ticular complications of measles leading to a fatal outcome.
Measles Encephalitis
There were 128 cases of post-measles encephalitis
reported for the first half of 1966, 58 more than during
the comparable period of 1965 and 23 fewer than during
the respective period in 1964 (Table 2). The ratio of
reported cases of post-measles encephalitis to total
cases in the U.S. was 0.7 per 1,000 cases the first half
of 1966, a substantial increase over the 0.3 per 1,000
cases recorded for same periods in 1965 and 1964. An
apparent increase in the relative frequency of encephalitis
was seen in six of the nine Divisions.

WEEK NUMBER


Vaccine
From the time of measles vaccine licensure in 1963
through March 1966, approximately 15 million doses of
live attenuated measles virus vaccine were distributed by
manufacturers for use in the United States. The estimated
number of susceptible children has been reduced from
about 20 million to approximately 12 million.

Editorial Note:
In 1965, when approximately six million doses of
measles vaccine were distributed, most of the vaccine
was used by physicians in private practice. As a result
higher socioeconomic groups generally have been more
adequately immunized than the lower socioeconomic


groups. Children in many rural areas have not been
vaccinated against measles. Also, it has been the custom
to concentrate on immunizing 1- and 2-year-olds while
little emphasis has been placed on the protection of
older children.
In October 1965, funds were made available for pur-
chase of measles vaccine through the Immunization
Assistance Act. The program provides measles vaccine
free of charge for all preschool children. Geographical
areas served by this program include 82 percent of the
population of the U.S.
