On Wednesday, the Genesee County Health Department said the case is not confirmed as measles and it said further there are no confirmed cases in Genesee County.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has confirmed 30 cases of measles for this year infecting individuals ranging in age from 1 to 63 this year.

The Indiana State Department of Health says it's working with local health departments to identify anyone who may have been exposed to the patient at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital Urgent Care in Angola on March 30.

But while outbreaks in the states of Washington and NY have made headlines, measles outbreaks in the first three months of 2019 have also been reported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, and Texas.

Officials also say individuals who may have been exposed at additional locations are being directly notified.

Immunization is the best defense against measles.

Professor Jonathan Ball, a professor at the University of Nottingham, said that of the three diseases vaccinated against in the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccination, mumps is the least effective.

A report by the Royal Society for Public Health earlier this year suggested that the top reason for the refusal of vaccines was the fear of possible side effects which among parents was being fuelled by social media. A personal identification number (PIN) is required. Measles vaccine, or other acceptable documentation of immunity to measles, is recommended for all persons travelling internationally. While death rates have been falling worldwide as more children receive the measles vaccine, the disease still kills more than 100,000 people a year, most under the age of 5. Because some children are too young to be immunized, it's important that those around them are vaccinated to protect them.

Dallas County officials reported last Thursday its first case of measles, bringing the total number of measles cases in Texas to 15.

As of late March, more than 385 measles cases have been confirmed in 15 states throughout the country.

According to the CDC, two doses of the vaccine are 97 percent effective against the measles, while one dose is 93 percent effective.

Other symptoms include a fever higher than 101 degrees, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. The fever can get as high as 105 degrees.

The rash begins on the face as flat, red spots and spreads down the neck and trunk to the rest of the body.

British Columbia is starting a two-month voluntary measles vaccine catch-up drive in an effort to vaccinate 95 per cent of youth before next fall's mandatory immunization registration of students across the province.

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus that is spread by direct contact with nasal or throat secretions of infected people. A single dose of measles vaccine protects about 95 percent of children, but after two doses, nearly 100 percent are immune. Talk to your healthcare provider to determine if immune globulin is right for you.
