No Confirmed Measles Cases in Jackson County, Health Officials Underline

Signs posted at The Vancouver Clinic in Vancouver Wash. warn patients and visitors of a measles outbreak on Wednesday Jan. 30 2019. The outbreak has sickened 39 people in the Pacific Northwest with 13 more cases suspected. At least one patient who

Health officials traced the outbreak in Washington to an unvaccinated global traveler and they said they're seeing about five new cases each day.

A measles outbreak near Portland, Oregon, has revived a bitter debate over so-called "philosophical" exemptions to childhood vaccinations as public health officials across the Pacific Northwest scramble to limit the fallout.

On the darkest day of 2018, the winter solstice, we at the Center for Vaccine Research at the University of Pittsburgh tweeted, with despair, a report in the Guardian that measles cases in Europe reached the highest number in 20 years.

Many parents worry vaccinations pose a threat to their child's health. In fact, according to the CDC, just one dose of the MMR vaccine is 93 percent effective against measles.

Last year, there were 17 outbreaks and about 350 cases of measles in the U.S.

Measles was basically eradicated in the USA after the introduction of the vaccine. Washington now has a sufficient supply of MMR vaccine for children and adults; however, as the outbreak continues, vaccine supply may be affected. Vaccinations are free for children and low cost for adults at area hospitals through a partnership with Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, as well, which partners with Mary Bridge Children's Hospital's free vaccination clinics for children.

Clark County up to 36 confirmed measles cases
The disease is contagious from approximately four days before the characteristic rash appears to four days after the rash appears. HB-1638 would only apply to measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines in the "philosophical or personal objections" category.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 90 percent of unvaccinated people exposed to the measles virus come down with the disease.

The Chelan-Douglas Health District clarified a Thursday news release indicating state law requires children or staff of public and private schools or child care show proof of immunity to Mumps, Measles and Rubella if the disease is present.

Before mass vaccination, 400 to 500 people in the USA died of the measles every year, 50,000 people were hospitalized and 4,000 people developed brain swelling that can cause deafness, Melnick said. "Symptoms can start like any other really bad cold: a cough, runny nose, not feeling very well, red eyes", he says. Therefore, a massive measles outbreak in the USA got traction due to the anti-vaxxer movement.

Patients are contagious four days before and four days after getting the rash.

Before America offered a measles vaccination program, starting in 1963, the CDC shares that an estimated 3 to 4 million people got measles each year in the United States.
