Pa. health officials stress importance of vaccines after measles outbreak

The 10 states with reported measles cases are: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. "Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease - it now prevents 2-3 million deaths a year, and a further 1.5 million could be avoided if global coverage of vaccinations improved".

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.

An uptick in measles cases in any given year can be caused by worldwide travelers who bring the virus back to the U.S. Measles also can spread quickly in areas with "pockets of unvaccinated people", the CDC says.

The measles vaccine, proven to be safe, effective and affordable, has been in use since the 1960s.

One new case has been identified since February 8. The first action point is the enhanced catch-up immunization for defaulters. Health workers are to exert "all efforts" to "conduct selected vaccination of unimmunized children" either facility based or door-to-door.

Infections have been reported in some of the poorest and most densely-populated regions of the country including Metro Manila, which is home to 12 million people.

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.
