Washington State Reports More Measles Cases

One day without a new measles case might seem an indicator of hope the outbreak is over, but it unfortunately doesn't necessarily indicate the end. Even children in the best of health who are diagnosed with measles should receive two doses of vitamin A supplements 24 hours apart, according to WHO.

Public Health has established a call center for questions related to the investigation.

The New York State Department of Health has reported at least 209 cases since October: 64 cases in Brooklyn and 145 cases in Orange and Rockland counties. "If you have a fever and a rash and you think you might have measles, you should avoid public settings and telephone your healthcare provider BEFORE going directly to a healthcare facility so steps can be taken to avoid possibly exposing others".

Anti-vaccination hot spots have been developing for several years. More than a half-dozen more cases are suspected, and people who were exposed to the disease traveled to Hawaii and Bend, Oregon, raising the possibility of more diagnoses in the unvaccinated.

The health agency also reported that there weren't any new exposure sites where people could have potentially come in contact with the disease.

"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 classy left-hander has a test average of nearly 40 and though he failed twice in the first Test, he was key in the second. The transformation came after West Indies lost both Tests against Bangladesh in November and December.

"The increase in the anti-vaccine people is because they have never seen the disease", Leisner said. It is also used in topical creams to reduce fine wrinkles, splotches and roughness and to treat acne. Taking too much at one time - over 200,000 micrograms - can cause nausea, vomiting, vertigo or blurry vision.

The measles outbreak was preventable and science has long debunked the rumors of unsafe vaccinations.

Prior to the vaccine, measles caused approximately 450 to 500 deaths each year in the United States.

Doctors say a big reason for measles spreading is the rate which patients are not getting the vaccine. A second dose between the ages of four and six will boost the immunity to 98 percent.

"That tells you how effective the vaccine is", he said.

Symptoms of measles generally begin a week to 14 days after infection. If left untreated, encephalitis, a potentially fatal inflammation of the brain, can develop. Thus, investing to capacitate, not only medical doctors, but also nurses, midwives, and other allied health professionals tasked to perform the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) is critical.
