Health officials say at no point has there been a shortage of measles vaccine in Vancouver, and people should still be getting immunized to prevent more cases from popping up, especially if they plan on travelling.
The number of new measles cases in the first two months of this year already surpasses the entire annual totals of all but three years since the disease was declared eliminated in 2000. Health officials didn't say where the person had traveled. That move followed congressional testimony from Ethan Lindenberger, a high school senior who described how his mother got anti-vaccine information nearly exclusively from Facebook. "People between the ages of 29 and 50 can expect to get a measles vaccine from their general practice in a week or two", says Dr Pink.
Some are utilizing the exemptions in Huron County, where the overall MMR vaccination rates for the locally documented incoming kindergartners is almost 7 percent lower than the state average. Lindenberger went as far as testifying about his case before a U.S. Senate committee last week.

Still, Dr. Steven Shapiro, chairman of pediatrics at Abington Hospital-Jefferson Health, reiterated that no vaccine offers complete protection, and the effectiveness does lessen over time. If other people breathe the contaminated air or touch the infected surface, then touch their eyes, noses, or mouths, they can become infected. The disease can easily spread through unvaccinated populations. "So many of them won't do it, it's just ridiculous". Measles can cause serious complications, especially for children younger than 5 years old.
One child with measles walking through a school will pretty much infect every other susceptible person in that school.Before scientists developed the vaccine, between 3 and 4 million people caught measles and 500 died from it each year in the USA, according to the agency.
Many cases that have been found involve the kids which are under 10 years old, and almost 15 cases are found where the people are within the age group of 11 to 18 years, and the rest are found in adults till the age of 39 years.
