Local health officials urge people to get measles vaccine

Teens with anti-vaxxer parents are asking Reddit for help getting secretly vaccinated

The region's measles outbreak began in Clark County, Washington, where since January 1, health officials had confirmed 49 cases and suspected nine others as of Tuesday morning.

If you are unsure of your family's immunization status, you can view, download and print your family's immunization information online at MyIR or request a copy of your immunization record from the Washington State Department of Health.

"If your child has received all the scheduled immunizations including the 12-to-15 month MMR vaccine and the vaccine between 4 and 6 years of age - for pre-kindergarten - those would confirm complete protection against measles", Dr. Wilson explained. The same study also said the important factors that influence vaccine decision-making process include "trust in the safety and efficacy of vaccines, trust in the individuals that administer or give advice about vaccination, and trust in the wider health system".

Local health officials in Hamilton County say as long as people are not getting vaccinated the potential spread is possible. Measles can be exceptionally unsafe for young children and infants. "Measles vaccine significantly reduces the likelihood of developing Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis (SSPE)". Washington and NY, which has seen about 200 people infected with measles in recent months, are the only states with current outbreaks, the agency says. According to the CDC, just one dose of the MMR vaccine is 93 percent effective.

Measles starts with fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat.

"We expect to see more and more cases", she said.

"It is a virus that starts like a common cold, but in a more severe version could be fatal, because it has the ability to get into organs that other viruses can't", Maldonado said. Public health officials said they have not identified any new locations where people may have been exposed to measles.

"Basically, you treat the symptoms", he said. "That is when it becomes very risky". Disrupted health services, including routine vaccinations, along with overcrowding in residential camps increases the risk of infection.

Five percent of people with measles get pneumonia. At least 47 people in southwest Washington's Clark County have been infected with measles during the past couple of weeks, according to data posted on the Clark County Public Health website on February 3.

People may have been exposed to the risky disease at more than three dozen locations, many in neighboring OR, such as Portland International Airport and the Moda Center, home to the Portland Trail Blazers. The outbreak in Clark County has been concentrated mostly among unvaccinated children.
