Measles - Get vaccinated now

So, how is it that a disease that's been declared eradicated in the u.S. People are contagious long before they show symptoms and nearly everyone who is not immune through vaccinations will get measles if they are exposed to the virus.

According to CNN, Washington state is experiencing the highest number of measles cases since 1996 - 37 to be exact - and is now in a state of emergency. The best defense against infection is vaccination, which the CDC says is "about 97 percent effective".

"Now is a great time for all families to take action by reviewing their vaccination records and be sure that everyone is up to date and has completed the vaccination series for measles", health officials said.

Measles is highly contagious, so we lose herd immunity when about 5 percent of the population is unvaccinated.

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