An outbreak of measles began before Christmas causing pain to families spread over six states. Over seventy people came down with the measles, and hundreds more have been exposed at schools, malls, and hospitals. Its been spread through Utah, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and all across the border of Mexico. Health officials throughout several school districts say that children must have their measles vaccinations to attend schools and sports events.
"Measles are a real threat to hospitals because so many of the patients are critically ill." says Carol Baker, executive director of the 'Center for Vaccinations' and Research at Texan Children's Hospital. This is because of the amount of people who visit the hospitals are exposed to those with the measles, causing a spread of the disease.
They predict by this Summer they will have Disneyland clean and safe so you can have fun without the worry of having a late night hospital visit. The states on the other hand will be a bit more difficult.
