Washington vaccination rate spikes as measles outbreak continues

One case of measles confirmed in Bell County

In Clark County, the confirmed cases include two infected residents who moved to Georgia, as well as two children who had traveled to Hawaii, where they were quarantined and did not spread measles to others.

One case of measles has been confirmed in Denton County raising the statewide total to seven, according to health officials.

- One case of measles has been confirmed in Bell County. Measles cases in the Philippine capital region also surged 10 times at the start of the year, as the government failed to hit its immunization target in 2018. A majority of those came from Clark County, home to Vancouver, where 51 cases have been confirmed since January 1.

Vaccination rates for measles, mumps and rubella in Ukraine fell sharply over a number of years during its conflict with Russian Federation, reaching 31% in 2016 - among the lowest in the world.

The proposals, which have come to be known as the Green New Deal, were crafted in conjunction with Senator Ed Markey of MA . The Green New Deal goes far beyond the Clean Power Plan proposed by President Barack Obama.


However, New York legislation opposes philosophical exemptions for vaccinations, meaning that children must be up-to-date on required vaccinations in order to attend school unless they have a religious or medical exemption. There are now 3 suspected cases in individuals who received the vaccine more than 72 hours after exposure. Of note, 2017 was also a record year for vaccination coverage when 90% of coverage for the second dose of the measles vaccine was achieved for the first time ever, according to WHO.

In many countries, anti-vaccine campaigners seek to dissuade parents from getting their children immunized, despite strong scientific evidence that vaccines are safe and effective.

In the United Kingdom, there were 953 measles cases past year.

In the third week of January, 644 children aged 1-18 were vaccinated against measles in the county. Health officials are not providing information about this individual in order to protect their privacy.

Kings agree to trade for Mavericks forward Barnes
The Cavaliers will also continue to look elsewhere as they seek to rebuild a team that now stands at 11-43 on the year. According to The Athletic's Shams Charania , the Kings will also be getting a second-round pick from Cleveland.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends two doses of measles vaccine, one given at between 12 months and 15 months of age and one between ages 4 and 6.

With more suspected cases, the outbreak isn't close to being over, officials said.

Dr. Alan Melnick, Public Health Director and Clark County Health Officer, said that two major factors are causing the outbreak. Most importantly, at least 95% of every population needs to be immune, through two doses of vaccination or prior exposure to the virus, to ensure community protection for everyone - including babies too young to be vaccinated and others who can not be immunized due to existing diseases and medical conditions.
