"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.

Women's brains appear 'years younger' than men's, says new study
This can cause problems later in life and scientists hope to one day slow it down with state-of-the-art drugs or brain therapy. The team trained an AI algorithm to guess people's ages based on the amount of oxygen and glucose flowing through their brain.

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.

In Australia, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson made unsubstantiated claims cautioning vaccination on the ABC's Insiders program in 2017, prompting a chorus of condemnation from health practitioners and politicians.

But when children who are unvaccinated shop in the same stores and go to the same events as everyone else, that's when they can get exposed. The mainstream of those infected are children, who have not been vaccinated against the disease, executives said.

Health officials in Multnomah County, Oregon, where Portland is located, have reported 4 cases that are linked to the Washington outbreak, as well.

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.
