Surprise! A bunch of kids who weren’t vaccinated now have the measles

Utah contends with rising vaccine exemptions in schools as the number of measles cases increase in the Pacific Northwest The anti-vaxx movement's role in the latest measles outbreak

Though being unvaccinated obviously left the sick individuals vulnerable to the disease, but those cases have not been connected to the Washington state outbreak and it is unclear how they contracted it. Now, according to an expert, the measles outbreak across the United States got traction due to the before-mentioned anti-vaxxer movement. Vaccinations are free for children and low cost for adults at area hospitals through a partnership with Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, as well, which partners with Mary Bridge Children's Hospital's free vaccination clinics for children.

"Vaccines are really the only effective treatment", said Dr. Nathan Schlicher at St. Joseph Medical Center's Emergency Services Department. They live in Camas, Washington, where at least one infected person spent time while contagious. Both states now allow parents to opt out of getting the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine. One to three of every 1,000 cases is fatal.

Back in that 2004 school year, the vaccination rate was "getting close" to a threshold for herd immunity (around 95%), Clark County public health director Alan Melnick told Business Insider. She said the legislation would "bring a hammer down and threaten people instead of allowing them to make informed decisions". Despite doctors managed to persuade more than half of those refusing parents, the number of people with measles is growing. Parents who don't want to immunize their children can homeschool or enrol their children in independent study at the local public school. 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. If exposed to the virus, anyone who is not immune is likely to get measles.

Early symptoms include a fever, runny nose and malaise, followed by a red rash that starts around the head and moves down the body.

The CDC advises those who believe they are infected should stay home for four days after developing the rash to minimize the likelihood of spreading the disease. CDC data show 90 percent of people who are unvaccinated near someone who is infected will contract the disease.
