Sudden outbreak of measles prompts emergency declaration, renews vaccination debate

The outbreak investigation, which is ongoing has identified 49 confirmed cases since January 1.
The health department said there are two other potential cases of measles that are pending as they wait for test results. To create "herd immunity" that helps protect those who can't get the vaccine (such as young infants or those with weak immune systems), you need about 95% vaccination, so the 94% isn't flawless - and in some states and communities, that number is even lower.
The Department of Health on Tuesday assured Filipinos that there is enough supply of vaccine for the disease. At least eight other states have reported measles cases this year: Hawaii, Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Colorado, California and Georgia.
Measles symptoms include a fever, a dry cough, a runny nose, a sore throat and inflamed eyes.
Washington is one of many states with non-medical exemptions. "Measles vaccine significantly reduces the likelihood of developing Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis (SSPE)". Older children and adults, even if they've never been vaccinated, may have developed natural immunity through previous infections. Those opposed to certain vaccines also object to an outside authority mandating what they put in their children's bodies, and some have concerns about the combination of the measles vaccine with the mumps and rubella immunizations, which is how it's routinely given. In 2018, in the USA, there were about 17 outbreaks and 349 cases. And that's just one vaccine-preventable disease. One dose is about 93% effective at preventing the contagious disease if you come into contact with the virus. "So when you think about parents bringing their children in for immunizations, it's not a disease that looms large in your memory".

The most widely known symptom is he rash which usually develops at around four days after the first symptoms.
The highly contagious virus spreads through the air and can linger for up to two hours in an isolated space.
But 100 years later, the disease had become rare indeed, until the distrust of vaccines led more parents to opt not to have their kids immunized. Many health-care professionals (HCPs), such as doctors, in the public health sector fear that the previous year might be the lowest FIC rate in a decade. "They are miserable and very sick-appearing", she said.
Also in 2017, The Columbian newspaper reported that 22 percent of kindergarten students had not completed their required immunizations when they started school that year. Since then, numerous studies have proven the effectiveness and safety of the MMR vaccine.
