A state of emergency was declared in Washington's Clark County and at least one case has also been confirmed in OR, and it's not out of the question that the outbreak could travel north toward the Lower Mainland.

A measles outbreak is sweeping through Portland, a hotspot for the anti-vaccination movement, and neighboring Clark County in Washington state.

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control is warning the public after measles outbreaks in areas of Washington State in the U.S.

Obtained one dose of the measles vaccine and you're a preschool-aged youngster OR an adult who won't be in an excessive-danger setting for measles transmission.

Anti-vaccination propaganda has already led to province-wide measles outbreaks in 2014 and 2010, and the BCCDC is understandably concerned about another as the disease spreads through the neighbouring states. As of Friday, Clark County Public Health had posted even higher numbers, with 30 confirmed and nine suspected cases.

Officials still are not sure where the Pacific Northwest outbreak began.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, declared a statewide public health emergency for his state on Friday.

So far, Clark County Public Health has found that 20 of those with the disease had not been immunized. The first known patient sought medical care on December 31, but it is unknown if other people may have gotten sick before that and did not seek treatment.

People who choose not to vaccinate their children are underestimating the dangers of the illness, said Melnick, who himself had measles as a child, before the vaccine was commonplace.

Many of these objections stem from the anti-vaccine movement, recently declared one of the biggest threats to humanity by the World Health Organization.

"The measles is now only being reintroduced because children are not being 100 percent vaccinated", says Dr. Schaffner. MMR vaccine is safe and effective; however, it is a live virus vaccine and can not be given to some people with certain types of weakened immunity. Of those, just 1 percent had medical exemptions, while a massive 7 percent objected due to "personal or religious reasons". It can remain in the air for up to two hours in an isolated space. Serious complications such pneumonia and brain infections can arise from the disease in some cases. Those people stayed home and later got ill, Armstrong said.
