Health district reports possible measles case in western Bell County

Tribune editorial Don’t fall for anti-vax scare campaigns What to know about measles - Valley Times-News

Measles is highly contagious and spreads through coughing and sneezing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"So this is mostly a virus that's transmitted via infected respiratory particles through the air and, so, it's important for immunocompromised people to avoid sick and ill people and specifically we're talking children", Brust said. A New York Department of Health official confirmed to ABC News last week that there were 30 confirmed cases to date in New York so far this year, and 122 confirmed cases in 2018. As many as 1 out of every 20 children with measles will get pneumonia, which can also be deadly, the agency reports.

By 29th of January, only one case of this disease was confirmed across the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon.

The outbreak in Clark County, Washington, entails 49 confirmed circumstances of measles and nine suspected situations, in keeping with native public health officers.

A person with measles can spread the virus to others for about eight days, starting four days before the rash appears and ending when the rash has been present for four days.

Anyone with questions about their measles immunity or the measles vaccine should contact their primary care provider.

"We make a lot of decisions in our life around parenting; unfortunately, this is one that not only impacts the decision you have made for your child but also impacts other children and persons around them", Sammons added.

The measles comeback actually began in 1998, when British doctor Andrew Wakefield suggested there was a link between the MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) vaccine and autism.

"We should all be anxious when a vaccine-preventable illness is coming back into our country", Sammons said. If you are not sure if you are immune to measles, you can get a blood test to find out.

Have vaccines become victims of their own success? Two doses of the vaccine are about 97 percent effective at preventing measles; one dose is about 93 percent effective. "Measles for most people causes a mild illness that they recover from a certain percentage will need to be hospitalized".

"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.

"While we do want to have a heightened level of concern and be aware of measles, there are many more much more common viruses that are circulating", she said.

The staggering number of children suffering from and dying from the current measles outbreak in this country is reprehensible ("Officials urge vaccinations amid Northwest measles outbreak", Web, Jan. 28).
