The confirmed cases are mostly centered in southwest Washington state, but include two people who travelled to Hawaii and another who went to Bend, Oregon. The current measles outbreak in Clark County and one diagnosed case in King County are examples of why the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Vaccine is a crucial requirement.

Of the confirmed cases, most patients were under 10 and at least 34 patients were not immunized.

The CDC advises those who believe they are infected should stay home for four days after developing the rash to minimize the likelihood of spreading the disease.

Last week, Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency because of the outbreak.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared measles "eliminated" from the United States in 2000, but adherents of an anti-vax movement, tied in part to concerns about links between vaccines and autism, has led many parents to skip the shot, opening the door to potential infection. There have also been three reported cases in Atlanta.

There is now a measles outbreak that started in Washington and has made its way to OR, and anti-vaxxers are the sole cause of this retro death threat.

Measles is extremely contagious, and can be serious, especially for young children.

Officials say the vast majority of people who have been infected are likely children of parents who decided not to have them vaccinated. 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.

You may recall that California allowed such exemptions until just a few years ago.

But the vaccine is less effective in those under a year old and is generally not given to infants.

Measles often begins with a high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. People are contagious long before they show symptoms and nearly everyone who is not immune through vaccinations will get measles if they are exposed to the virus.
