There have also been three reported cases in Atlanta, Georgia.

But in recent years, there's been a resurgence of the disease both in the USA and overseas, and experts believe its return is fueled by anti-vaccination laws, groups and lobbies, experts say.

The two-dose vaccine against measles was introduced in 1978 in the USA, and by 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared it 'eliminated'.

Thirty-one of the confirmed patients had not been vaccinated against measles. "We've since looked at millions of kids completely debunking that there's any link between autism and [the vaccine]".

Back in that 2004 school year, the vaccination rate was "getting close" to a threshold for herd immunity (around 95%), Clark County public health director Alan Melnick told Business Insider.

Washington state's measles outbreak now stands at 42 confirmed cases.

Iran says US-sanctions workaround by European Union soon to be announced
As the European signatories to the nuclear accord, Germany, France and Britain set up and will manage the clearing house. Iran in turn will have to figure out if this is the real deal, or just a way for the Europeans to save face.

Dr. Messonnier contends that there are no other alternatives to vaccination and that best way to stop this outbreak in its tracks is to make sure that everybody gets vaccinated. But measles is still a big problem in other parts of the world, and travelers infected overseas can bring the virus back and spread it, causing periodic outbreaks.

One anti-vaxx mom's post went viral after she asked members of the private Facebook group "Vaccine Education Network: Natural Health Anti-Vaxx Community " how to protect her child from measles. Although rubella was declared eliminated from the U.S.in 2004, cases can occur when unvaccinated people are exposed to infected people, mostly through global travel.

Smith has made an appointment to get him the shot as soon as possible - the day after he turns one.

A measles outbreak in the Pacific Northwest became more worrisome on Wednesday with word that people infected with the extremely contagious viral illness travelled to Hawaii and central OR after being exposed. They live in Camas, Washington, where at least one infected person spent time while contagious.

Early symptoms include a fever, runny nose and malaise, followed by a red rash that starts around the head and moves down the body.
