"What a lot of people don't realize is that it's one of the most contagious viruses we've ever known". Meanwhile, two confirmed cases of the disease in Hawaii are being blamed on unvaccinated Washington children who visited the island recently.

"I would hope that this ends soon, but this could go on for weeks, if not months", said Dr. Alan Melnick, public health director in Clark County, Washington, just north of Portland. Although rubella was declared eliminated from the U.S.in 2004, cases can occur when unvaccinated people are exposed to infected people, mostly through global travel.

Two cases of measles were confirmed January 13, 2019 and the third measles case was confirmed January 26.

A bill supported by some Democrats in the state Legislature's majority would ban all non-medical exemptions from vaccination requirements for children in NY. Authorities said Friday one case was a person who had received one dose of the measles vaccine. When a person has been vaccinated as recommended, the vaccine is up to 97 percent effective in preventing measles. "It's still out there, even though it's been debunked, that the measles vaccine results in autism".

"Sustaining a high vaccination rate among school children is vital to the prevention of disease outbreaks, including the reestablishment of diseases that have been largely eradicated in the United States, such as measles", the bill states.

Many parents worry vaccinations pose a threat to their child's health.

Clark County, Washington, has a vaccination rate of 78 percent, well below the level necessary to protect those with compromised immune systems or who can't get vaccinated because of medical issues or because they are too young. In Oregon, which has a similar law, 7.5 percent of kindergarteners in 2018 were missing shots for non-medical reasons.

There are 18 states that allow parents to opt out of vaccines if they have personal, moral or philosophical objections to them.

The best protection against measles is the MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps, and rubella viruses. Almost 4 percent of North Dakota parents don't get their children immunized before kindergarten.
