Maybe it's part of the same anti-intellectual trend that we have previously decried on this page: the bias and conceit that leads people to brand all reporting that challenges their beliefs or casts a public figure they like in a bad light as "fake news". The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

While vaccination rates are improving, the World Health Organization says coverage is not high enough to prevent circulation of the virus in many countries.

Orders for two types of measles vaccines in Clark County were up almost 500 percent in January compared to the same month past year, jumping from 530 doses to 3,150, according to state health department figures.

The number of USA children who have not been vaccinated for preventable diseases quadrupled between 2001 and 2018, according to the CDC.

"Clusters of vaccine refusers are serving as tinder for these fires", Omer says.

"We're just happy that we're prepared and that there is vaccine available". The length of time children or staff are required to stay out of school is 21 days after the last reported case. There have been calls in recent years for Canada to start a national registry to help officials keep better track of vaccination rates.

Since the beginning of the year, things have been looking increasingly grim in parts of OR and Washington due to a measles outbreak that has affected dozens of people.

Measles is caused by the measles virus, which can be spread through the air by coughing or sneezing. Vaccination within 72 hours of exposure to the virus can limit the severity of the disease or prevent the exposed person from getting sick.

The orders represent only state-supplied vaccines requested through the federal Vaccines for Children program, which provides free immunizations to children who otherwise couldn't afford them.

"We are seeing some very large outbreaks of measles at the moment especially in places like the Philippines, Ukraine, Romania and Africa", Professor Raina MacIntyre, a biosecurity expert at the University of New South Wales said. Joan Robinson, a pediatric infectious diseases physician and editor of the Paediatrics & Child Health Journal, said that outbreaks often occur in small communities where children aren't vaccinated.

As measles cases multiply in the Vancouver-Portland region, health officials emphasize the importance of vaccinations.

The Grayson County Health Department says there are no confirmed cases in Grayson County as of Wednesday. We are left to hope this airborne illness doesn't make its way across the Columbia River and infect non-immune children in our neck of the woods - whether those whose parents have chosen not to have them vaccinated, those who have been vaccinated but are not completely immune, or those too young to be vaccinated.

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.

The Northwest cases are among three ongoing measles outbreaks in the US that sickened 79 people in January, according to the CDC.

Research has confirmed that vaccines don't cause autism, a common reason cited by parents who reject vaccinations.
