  • Clamour for vaccines as measles outbreak kills nearly 1,000 children in Madagascar

There has also been one confirmed measles case in King County, Washington, and four cases in Multnomah County, Oregon.

No cases of measles have yet been confirmed in the Interior Health region. New supplies of the vaccinations are being shipped from other parts of the country in order to ensure that enough of the medicine is available to keep the measles from spreading to other counties or possibly even other nearby states.

Public health officials say the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is the most effective way to prevent infection. Measles was declared eliminated from the U.S.in 2000 but has been creeping back due to gaps in vaccine coverage. "The current public health infrastructure is really threatened by events like this".

For those born after 1970, who aren't sure if they've been vaccinated, there is no increased risk of adverse effects from getting the MMR vaccine, said Wilson. "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages vaccination before traveling internationally", said Dr. Volunteers from the Medical Reserve Corps have also lent their time to the ongoing efforts. One person in every 3,000 with measles may die from complications.

Students admitted to the University of Arkansas are required by Arkansas State Law to provide documentation of two MMR immunizations.

As you have heard, there is a measles outbreak at three schools in Vancouver. Of those, 17, including Washington, allow parents to opt out because they feel that vaccines violate their personal or philosophical beliefs. It said religious exemptions for vaccines had jumped almost 70 percent in recent years in the Greenville area - the part of the state she had just moved to. Other children and adolescents who have no history of vaccination are recommended to receive two doses of MMR at least four weeks apart.

Other cases have been identified in King County and the Portland area.

Now, she said, we are in a "waiting game".

Lindquist said he expects the complete response to the outbreak to eventually cost the state "well over a million dollars", and Melnick told the paper that taxpayer money is being spent "for something that could have been completely, utterly preventable in the first place".

In a follow-up on the measles outbreak in Donegal, the Ireland Health Service Executive (HSE) says the outbreak total has risen to seven.
