Özet

Background: Measles outbreaks seem to occur every 2- to 3-year intervals in Turkey. However, seroepidemiological studies are limited. Knowing the prevalence of measles susceptibility as measured either by serologic markers of immunity or surveys of vaccination coverage is an important tool to assess the risk for measles outbreaks.
