  • Measles Outbreak Spurs Vaccination Surge in Anti Vaxxer Hotspot

Health officials have attributed the surge in measles cases and deaths to lack of vaccination.

The health authority last released a measles alert in September, when a person who was infected attended the Skookum Festival.

Stefanson says if anyone is concerned they are infected they should report to their doctor, but call ahead first so they can take precautions to isolate them and protect other patients.

The latest case is not believed to be linked to an outbreak of measles in the state of Washington, Hussain said.

Travellers at Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, Ont., were warned last week that people who were in the airport's Terminal One for a four-hour period on January 27, may have contracted the disease.

If you are unsure of your family's immunization status, you can view, download and print your family's immunization information online at wa.MyIR.net or request a copy of your immunization record from the Washington State Department of Health.

Separately, the federal government has issued travel health notices regarding measles outbreaks in Europe, Africa and South America.

Measles, caused by a virus that infects the respiratory tract, can be passed through direct contact and through the air.

Symptoms of measles include fever, reddening of the eyes, cough and colds, and red rashes, the agency added.

Vancouver Coastal Health recommends vaccinations.

Children older than 12 months of age, and adults without a history of measles, not pregnant or planning to become pregnant in 4 weeks and with no allergic reaction to a previous dose of measles-containing vaccine, are advised to get a dose of monovalent measles, MR or MMR.

The DOH cited a World Health Organization (WHO) study in 2018 which identified reasons for not bringing children for immunization in Metro Manila. However, those born before 1970 are likely immune.

The report comes as both Canada and the United States face another year of measles outbreaks such as one now underway in Washington State and OR, where support for anti-vaccination has been notable.
