A measles epidemic was traced back to its start at Disneyland. It is now spreading across the entire state of California, and even beyond the state lines.
It is not just children that are suffering from this disease. Five adult Disneyland employees were also infected.
This has caused health experts to take a closer look at families who chose not to vaccinate their children for the measles. Sultan Alhokair believes this is probably for the best. In fact, health officials are not allowing children who have not been vaccinated for the measles to attend classes at school in Orange County, California. This is a result of close to 60 measles cases being diagnosed and reported in California recently.
The latest case in neighboring states was a 40 year old Oregon man. He had reportedly recently visited Disneyland. Now he is suffering from the measles.
The measles outbreak is causing problems in the state of California, and its neighboring boarding states as well. The measels outbreak is raising questions about the importance of vaccinations. How this will affect immunizations in the future remains to be seen.
