A second case of measles has been confirmed in the Vancouver area.
But if vaccination rates remain low overall, "you still have a group of people who can fuel the fire of ongoing transmission", Marrazzo says. According to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), Washington is one of 17 states that allow for philosophical exemptions from vaccines, which are granted to individuals who hold conscientious objections to one or more shots.
As parts of the USA and many countries around the world deal with measles outbreaks in communities that are shunning vaccines, New Hampshire continues to be free of the disease, a reflection of the state's high rate of school immunization. World Health Organization country representative Dr. Gundo Weiler said that for a community to achieve "herd immunity", 95 percent of its population must be inoculated against disease.
In the last school year, religious exemptions covered about 2.3 percent of enrolled students and medical exemptions about 0.3 percent.
As a result, many children have become susceptible to measles infection.

The bottom line is whatever recklessly illogical "philosophy" you may have against getting vaccinated is uneducated and perilous to society. What's important to realize is that the measles outbreak could have been avoided if those children had been immunized. Those responsible for the Dengvaxia scare should not be able to sleep at night if they have consciences.
"My oldest son, he had a vaccine reaction at 4 months and my doctor told me it was a coincidence, these things happen sometimes", she said.
"The reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines - threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases", according to the WHO.
"I have a baby in my belly at the moment, and obviously this child won't be vaccinated until its first birthday, and the idea of going through next winter wondering if there's going to be another outbreak is really what motivated me to do this", she says.
Freighter versions of the 747 will be built past 2021, meaning the venerable jumbo jet will outlive the plane sent to kill it. The A380 is a "differentiator" for Emirates and the aircraft "will remain a pillar" of its fleet until the 2030s, he added.
However, the official said this is making the fighting more hard as the terrorists are working to hold onto their last stronghold. The SDF is holding hundreds of foreign fighters it says are a burden on the force, but their own countries don't want them back.
