Collin and Tarrant counties were singled out in a national survey as anti-vaccination "hotspots" for non-medical vaccine exemptions among school-age children.

Health officials say the outbreak is a textbook example of why it's critical to vaccinate against measles, which was eradicated in the US after the vaccine was introduced in 1963. The only other case so far has been reported in King County. It is an airborne disease which spreads easily through the coughs and sneezes of infected people. Vaccination is a fool-proof method to curb the spread of measles. CDC data show 90 percent of people who are unvaccinated near someone who is infected will contract the disease. In some people, especially people who have chronic medical problems, are pregnant, or are malnourished, measles also leads to serious problems such as pneumonia, brain damage, blindness, deafness, and death. Health officials stress that people who believe they may have been exposed should call their doctor or hospital before visiting to avoid exposing anyone else. And say they're seeing about five new cases each day.

Prompted by the outbreak Safeway and Albertsons pharmacies are reminding people that they are offering measles vaccination, for extended hours seven days a week and accept most insurance plans.

"Unfortunately, many parents refuse to vaccinate their children".

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

Measles virus travels through the air. A person can get measles just by being in a room where an infected person has been. "The best way to get prepared is to make sure you and your children that you're responsible for are up to date on your vaccinations".

One vaccine provides 93 per cent immunity from measles, and two shots provide 97 per cent protection.

Foreign travel or exposure to foreign travelers increases the risk for measles.

Free MMR vaccines are available by calling the Rockland County Department of Health at 845-364-2497 or 845-364-2520 to schedule an appointment to get a free MMR vaccine at the Pomona health complex.
