So far so good say health officials in Yakima. The reason, according to an article in the Hartford Courant, is that the majority of Connecticut's population has been vaccinated. Public Health now says 49 cases have been confirmed, up from 47 on Sunday, with nine cases currently suspected. At least 44 people in Washington and OR have fallen ill in recent weeks with the extraordinarily contagious virus, which was eradicated in the U.S.in 2000 as a result of immunization but arrives periodically with overseas travelers.

We spoke with Pediatric Medical Director Lauren Wilson with Inpatient Pediatrics at Community Medical Center about how parents can confirm their children are properly vaccinated.

A possible measles case was reported in a child in western Bell County, according to the Bell County Public Health District.

The measles virus is very infectious.

"The anti-vaccine movement is becoming more common where parents want to raise their children in a natural way, but what they are doing is leaving their child open to diseases", Maldonado said. Two does are about 97 percent effective.

Most of the time, as with other childhood viruses, people weather it fine, but there can be complications.

Lurking among the hot new cars and crowds of journalists at this year's North American International Auto Show was a potentially serious virus, state health officials warned Friday. In Europe, in the fast half of 2018, there were more than 41.000 cases, which is a very high record for a post-vaccine era.

"The measles vaccine isn't ideal, but one dose is 93 percent effective at preventing illness", Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County's health officer, said in a statement. In 2018, in the United States, there were about 17 outbreaks and 349 cases.

"More than 240 million doses of measles vaccine were given in the US from 1963 through 1993", explained Dr. The State Department of Health is providing support for impacted communities and health departments. Then, families travel to other countries where the virus is more common, and since they are unprotected, they bring the virus back to the U.S. This is when outbreaks occur.

Despite the high number of patients, De Guzman clarified that the hospital is still taking in more patients with measles. A lot of them were children under 5. However, he said an older person with a weaker immune system could have a higher chance of a unsafe infection if not vaccinated.

Children typically receive the first vaccine at 1 year to 15 months old, and the second dose at 4 to 6 years. One patient had received only one of the two recommended doses of the vaccine, and the vaccination status of six others was unknown, the county department of health said.
