Pa. health officials stress importance of vaccines after measles outbreak

One more child with measles was confirmed by Clark County Public Health on Tuesday, but one was deleted from the list of cases, making the total count stay the same.

The controversy began in November 2017, when Dengvaxia manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur announced that the vaccine may not be effective in some cases and could lead to severe dengue infections among people who have not previously had the disease.

This outbreak prompted doctors to warn about the importance of vaccinations because diseases like the Measles can mean life or death for people who can't get the vaccine.

"We technically eliminated measles from the United States around 2000".

So far in 2019, outbreaks of three or more cases also have been reported in Texas, New York City and New York's Monroe and Rockland counties.

On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed 101 instances of measles.

Outbreaks in New York City and Rockland County have been ongoing since a year ago, and have been concentrated among Orthodox Jewish communities. That was the only confirmed case of measles in Canada in 2019 as of January 26, the latest date for which PHAC data is available.

Measles is highly infectious and spreads through air when an infected person coughs or sneezes, according to the Vancouver Coastal Health.

Lynch said that's lower than in the rest of the country.

The perceived risks of vaccination has increasingly been cited as the main reason for vaccine hesitancy in middle-income countries like the Philippines and Brazil, eclipsing previous barriers such as a lack of awareness or religious beliefs, according to a study a year ago by World Health Organization and United Nations International Children's Fund researchers.

In southwest Washington state, almost one in four kindergartners didn't get all their immunizations a year ago.

At the same time, a children 10 years old or younger did get diagnosed with measles.

The MMR immunization rate among Pennsylvania kindergartners is over 96 percent, above the threshold for so-called herd immunity.

Many people have rushed to vaccinate themselves and their children since the Vancouver-area outbreak started at the beginning of the year. Demand for vaccinations has skyrocketed in Clark County, Kaiser Health News reported, with requested orders of the vaccine reaching 3,150 doses in January, up from 530 in the same period previous year.

Ninety percent of those exposed to the virus who are not immune will come down with measles, also called rubeola, the CDC says. Key components identified to successfully eradicate measles and mumps outbreaks included encouraging vaccinations and education around symptoms.

People born before 1994 or who grew up outside of B.C. may need a second dose.

A similar measure failed in 2015 after facing opposition.
