The American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and other medical groups have long said that states should get rid of all exemptions except when a vaccine would cause medical harm to a child.

According to Dr. Lindquist, contacting and testing sick people - mostly children - and trying to figure out who else they might have exposed, has been a trying and expensive process. "So action is coming".

Medical health officer Dr. Althea Hayden said Tuesday that the last day anyone at the schools could have been exposed to the virus was February 14 and the latest anyone exposed could become sick is March 7.

Nine measles cases have been confirmed in Vancouver so far this year, and Washington state has declared a state of emergency due to a measles outbreak unfolding there.

On Tuesday, the health authority said at least 36 students and staff members from the three schools affected are now not attending classes because the students are either not vaccinated or don't have proof of vaccination. "You could mandate certain rules about what is and isn't permissible when it comes to allowing people to have exemptions", he said.

Duque bared that there are 11,459 measles cases nationwide as of February 20 this year, much higher than the 2,673 measles cases recorded over the same period last year.

"I think we need to take steps in the future, but the step we can all take right now is to have children immunized, and that's what I'm encouraging everyone to do", he said.

Japanese spacecraft touches down on asteroid to get samples

Dix says following the Fraser Valley outbreak, the area became one of the highest areas for immunization in the province without any policy changes. Dee Hoyano, most parents on the island do understand the importance of vaccinating their kids.

The provincial government is also considering using the school system as a way to get people vaccinated.

He says this follows a model where the process to opt out is more onerous than getting the shot.

"Utilizing the school system to get our immunization rate up is something we should consider", Fleming said.

A majority of the cases have been detected in New York, Texas and Washington State, where 53 percent of all reported measles cases have been discovered. Global coverage has stalled at 85 per cent in recent years, well short of herd-protection levels.

According to VCH data, the vaccination rate for measles across all kindergarten students in the VCH region is just 83.1 per cent.

But Fleming says schools haven't been able to put in registrations now in part because they can't ensure fairness across the province. Can this be done equitably across the country? In response, the health authority has been holding additional immunization clinics and held three at École Jules-Verne.
