In 2016, 86 people from 19 states had measles. The majority of those cases were in people who were not vaccinated. That's up substantially from the 118 cases reported in 15 states and the District of Columbia in all of 2017.

According to the latest report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have been 107 people from 21 states diagnosed with measles from January 1 to July 14, 2018.

The other states included are: Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Washington. Three to five days after symptoms begin, a rash breaks out, with small red spots that begin on the face and spread over the entire body.

The source of the infections has not been identified, according to the health department.

Out of 1,000 people who contract the virus, two to three will die from it.

"We are continuing to investigate, but we would like families to know that their children could be exposed to diseases like measles anywhere and unless they're protected with vaccination they are risking potentially serious health effects for their child", Dr. Ulyee Choe, an infectious disease specialist and the county's health director, said in a statement Monday.

Complications can include pneumonia, encephalitis and even death.

Pregnant women, who are infected by measles, can give birth to a premature child or a low-birth-weight baby. The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine provides long-lasting protection against all strains of measles.

The CDC recommends children get two doses of the vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 to 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. "A lot of people unfortunately have incorrect information about the measles vaccine, because past research articles have implicated it as a cause of autism", Lee said.
