It's interesting that the article is talking about measles incidence, but the graph is of deaths from measles. Deaths from measles dropped as supportive care improved and societies industrialized and had better access to that care. If you look at the actual rate of measles infections they paint a different picture about the vaccines effectiveness.

And holy smokes look at the dates n those sources. 30, 40, even 80 years old! Most involve dead virus vaccine. In the us live virus vaccine is used for measles.

Here's some ore on the effectiveness of vaccines in general and some stuff on measles specifically.

Quote:
Results A greater than 92% decline in cases and a 99% or greater decline in deaths due to diseases prevented by vaccines recommended before 1980 were shown for diphtheria, mumps, pertussis, and tetanus. Endemic transmission of poliovirus and measles and rubella viruses has been eliminated in the United States; smallpox has been eradicated worldwide. Declines were 80% or greater for cases and deaths of most vaccine-preventable diseases targeted since 1980 including hepatitis A, acute hepatitis B, Hib, and varicella. Declines in cases and deaths of invasive S pneumoniae were 34% and 25%, respectively.

According to this case study we would need to vaccinate more. Although I thought that you do not need boosters for measles.

On the other hand, this study suggests that measles will probably never be extinct despite 100% vaccine rates.
