He was not surprised though to hear about a measles outbreak because they are seeing rising rates of people not vaccinating their child.

In 2017, 118 people from 15 states were reported to have measles.

In 2015, a large measles outbreak was linked to visitors to Disneyland. It was the greatest number of measles cases the country had seen since the disease was eliminated in 2000. Measles elimination is defined as the absence of continuous transmission for 12 months or more in a specific geographic area.

The CDC says a majority of those cases were diagnosed in people who were not vaccinated. The CDC didn't say how many of those cases were in Kansas. Cases can be contagious a few days before the rash appears, which increases the possibility of unknowingly exposing others. "One dose of MMR vaccine is 93% effective against measles, 78% effective against mumps, and 97% effective against rubella".
