This brings the total number of confirmed measles cases in the current Metro Vancouver outbreak to 10.

States that allow exemptions based on personal beliefs open the door for outbreaks of diseases like measles, which has now sickened dozens in Washington. Please note that this is a localized outbreak and that students who are attending schools not connected to the outbreak have not been exposed. It starts with fever, cough, runny nose, and red, watery eyes. A characteristic rash then develops, beginning on the face and spreading down the body. Under current law, parents can refuse all of those vaccines, plus the MMR vaccine, by signing a statement saying they have a philosophical or personal objection to the immunization of their child. Children between 12 months and 12 years can get the MMRV vaccine instead.

Vaccine requirements for school are being enforced in some areas where measles is threatening to spread.

"Some states are engaging in such wide exemptions that they're creating the opportunity for outbreaks on a scale that is going to have national implications", FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNN in an interview, adding that if "certain states continue down the path that they're on, I think they're going to force the hand of the federal health agencies".

If you were born before January 1, 1970, the health authority says you are likely immune since Measles was in wide circulation in Canada back then.

People born before 1994 or who grew up outside of B.C. may need a second dose.

If you were born before 1970 or have had measles infection in the past, you are considered protected. A measles booster dose is due starting at age four. The measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is publicly-funded and available from pharmacists in almost every community, the association said in a news release Friday. The best way to protect you and your family against measles is to receive the MMR vaccine.
