Since the outbreak began, the Department has worked with elected officials, community organizations, and religious leaders to conducted extensive outreach in the community to educate residents in these zip codes about the risks associated with measles and the importance of vaccination. Farr says anyone who thinks they may have measles should call their health care provider before showing up in person.
The virus is highly contagious, airborne and easily spreads. It's those who received the vaccine between 1963 and 1967 who are the exception, she noted. "The only way to protect against measles is to get vaccinated".
State legislatures in both Washington and OR are considering laws that would remove non-medical exemptions for the routinely administered measles vaccine. "You can believe that vaccines don't work or that they are unsafe or they simply fly in the face of your parenting philosophy", she says. As a nation, to stop the spread of deadly diseases, we have to address the root cause of the problem and we have to define concrete steps.
The city's Health Department on Thursday pleaded with parents to vaccinate their children against measles, as an outbreak in Brooklyn has grown exponentially since October.

"We can tell when the virus is reintroduced into our country from where it comes from", Dr. Fauci said. These figures show that if vaccine usage and coverage is not picked up, other countries and communities remain susceptible to measles.
"This is just another reason that everybody else that is able to get the vaccine should get it as there is something called herd immunity where people are immunized around them, so people who can not get immunized are protected from the disease", she added.
To achieve this for measles, the population immune needs to be 93% to 95%.
"That means that only 7 out of 100 people really would be at risk for getting measles". He added that the trend of measles increases is seen "pretty much across the globe".
