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. That raises the possibility of more cases among the unvaccinated. 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.
Thirty-one of the Clark County cases are between the ages of 1 and 10; 10 are between 11 and 18; and one case is between 19 and 29.

More information on vaccination numbers across the state can be found on the Florida Health website. There has been no connection made between the outbreak in Washington and the three cases in Georgia.
