News from the Health Department:

Did you know? Measles has been in the news recently, as an outbreak in Washington State has risen to 50 cases. Measles is the leading cause of vaccine-preventable childhood mortality. In 2000, the United States declared measles eliminated from this country, which is defined as the absence of continuous disease transmission for 12 months.

However, measles still can occur in the US because of travel to countries where measles are endemic. Once introduced, measles can spread through communities with pockets of unvaccinated people, as is the case in Washington State. 

High sustained measles vaccine coverage and rapid public health response are critical for preventing and controlling measles cases and outbreaks. Learn more about measles from the CDC and NSHD
