The Oregon Legislature will likely take a look at ways to tighten the state's immunization rules in the wake of the Pacific Northwest measles outbreak, Brown said, although she didn't point to any specific proposal.

"To investigate to identify maybe where they went right away so that we can start notifying the public, you know, that these places you may have been exposed to measles", Christ said.

The Department of Health (DOH) declared a measles outbreak in Metro Manila with a spike in measles in cases, while placing several regions under tight watch.

Recently, Fort Worth, Plano, Houston and Austin were singled out as anti-vaccine "hotspots" because a number of Texas families are opting out of vaccines, according to a study in PLOS Medicine.

These worldwide travelers then spread measles upon their return, which cause outbreaks in the USA.

The measles outbreak affecting the Portland-Vancouver area hasn't hit Wahkiakum County, yet.

Denton County officials said they do not believe their case and the Houston ones are connected.

Clark County also listed 11 suspected cases of measles.

All three cases are children who were not vaccinated or did not complete their vaccine series.

The three individuals involved in the new cases were in close contact with the first Multnomah County resident who tested positive for measles January 25, according to the Oregon Health Authority.

According to the Texas DSHS, "Measles is a highly contagious respiratory illness spread by contact with an infected person through coughing and sneezing".

Statewide in Washington, orders for measles vaccine jumped about 30 percent in January compared with the same month past year, climbing from 12,140 doses to 15,780 doses, figures showed.

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.

But it's a snapshot of the scare an outbreak can cause, said Dr. Alan Melnick, the Clark County health officer overseeing the response. So far, there are 2 confirmed cases.

Measles is prevented through the combination measles, mumps, and rubella, or MMR, vaccine.
