The day 4 rash common in measles cases

"I mean, this is a lousy way to get vaccination rates up".

Ukraine reported the highest number of measles cases a year ago across Europe, while more than 90% of cases were in 10 countries, including France, Italy and Greece.

A report published by the European Commission past year and compiled by a team led by Larson found that measles immunization coverage has fallen in 12 EU countries since 2010, and that seven out of the 10 countries with the lowest vaccine confidence in the world are in Europe.

The confirmed case of measles is in a child residing in Western Bell County. "We're hopeful and any time we see that there are no new exposure locations that's helpful", said Marissa Armstrong, spokeswoman for the Clark County Public Health. However, there are 11 people who display symptoms of measles and are awaiting the results of blood work to confirm the diagnosis.

According to Clark County's outbreak investigation statement, all of the confirmed cases are a match of a wild strain of virus that has been circulating through Eastern Europe and is preventable through vaccination.

He had left an Internet café with American journalist James Foley when armed men captured them on the road to Turkey. But a French ISIS fighter told a French magazine that he had seen Cantlie in Raqqa "seven or eight months ago".

Statewide in Washington, orders for measles vaccine jumped about 30 percent in January compared with the same month a year ago, climbing from 12,140 doses to 15,780 doses, figures showed. Last year, 372 measles cases were confirmed nationwide, the most since an outbreak in 2014 sickened 667 people. One patient had received one dose of the MMR vaccine.

While more children in Europe are being vaccinated against measles than ever before, progress has been "uneven" between countries and individual countries have some patches where vaccine take-up is low, it said.

The percentage of children receiving the first dose of the vaccine also increased, to 95%.

And when it comes to combatting preventative diseases, the CDC says there are no alternatives to vaccination.
