Northwest US Measles Cases Prompt Look At Vaccine Exemptions

Three Georgia Measles Cases

The outbreak near Portland has sickened 35 people in OR and Washington since January 1, with 11 more cases suspected.

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) has confirmed measles in three residents of the metro Atlanta area. In recent years, however, the viral illness has popped up again from NY to California and sickened hundreds.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC") say the number of cases in the USA has almost tripled in the previous year.

Public health officials have said the outbreak could last several more months. "We've since looked at millions of kids completely debunking that there's any link between autism and [the vaccine]".

Schumer also called Trump's criticism of the intel chiefs " extraordinarily inappropriate ", reported Fox News . Coats' statement Wednesday, telling USA intelligence officials to " go back to school ", in a tweet.


"There are 40 confirmed cases in the Northwest, including 38 clustered in southwest Washington, one in Portland and one in Seattle".

Thirty-one of the confirmed patients had not been vaccinated against measles. DOH urges everyone to check their immunization records to verify that they are fully immunized and get vaccinated if they are not already.

"Even though the CDC bureaus declared measles as 'eradicated" in the 2000s, a new measles outbreak hit the United States, proving that there's nothing eliminated regarding the measles virus. And the worst part of the measles outbreak would be that this virus is deadly for the majority of newborns and individuals with a weak immune system. That raises the possibility of more cases among the unvaccinated. The first known patient sought medical care on December 31, but it isn't known if other people may have gotten sick before that and did not seek treatment.

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

Smith is angry that those who choose not to vaccinate their children have possibly endangered her son, through no fault of her own. At least 43 people in Washington and OR have fallen ill in recent weeks with the extraordinarily contagious virus. Symptoms usually appear 10-12 days after exposure but may appear as early as seven days and as late as 21 days after exposure. "I'm just so scared", she said.

"The virus can actually live for about two hours on surfaces and in the air".

"Measles is airborne and highly contagious, so if you aren't vaccinated and you're exposed to somebody who has measles, you'll most likely get them", Howell said. Symptoms include fever, runny nose, cough, and, after the first few days, a rash.

More screen time for toddlers more problems
Those guidelines include avoiding digital media for toddlers younger than 18 to 24 months, except for video chatting. Sit with kids and participate in their screen time , rather than using it as a babysitter.
