Denton County Public Health officials said Wednesday there's one confirmed case of measles in the county. Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, 90 percent of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected.

In Clark County, 34 of the cases were among children age 10 or younger, while just two were among patients older than 18. That includes attending church by video feed and working with employers.

The decision not to vaccinate is one that many in the medical field, including Dr. Bill Mostow, strongly disagrees with, as it can leave that population vulnerable to diseases like the measles.

"Our vaccination rates are not so low that I think we are going to be like Italy or Romania that had thousands of cases a year ago but we could have a few hundred cases", Ludke said.

Measles, which was once a deadly disease among American children, is considered to be extremely rare.

Infectious people were at Costco, the airport, a Blazers game and other sites.

The vast majority of Vancouver-area cases were not vaccinated against the virus.

"People that are actually infected with measles, one in four will get hospitalized and one in 1,000 may die", said Dana Beckham, director of Harris County Public Health. "The recommended two doses of the measles vaccine provide even greater protection - 97 percent". The vaccine can reduce the risk of infection if gotten within 72 hours after exposure to the virus.

Officials say vaccinations levels are falling in several Texas counties, and anything below a 95 percent vaccination rate is considered unsafe. As the threat of measles has become all too real in Clark County, residents are lining up for vaccines, according to data first reported by Kaiser Health News.

Health officials said it takes two doses of the MMR vaccine to protect you against Measles, Mumps and Rubella - and it will give you peace of mind if you come down with similar symptoms.
