Three people in the Houston area have contracted measles, Harris County Public Health officials said Monday.
In Harris County, two boys and a woman are being treated for measles. The Houston outbreak comes as new circumstances of measles are being confirmed in Washington state every day, and different instances have been established in Oregon, Georgia, and NY. That was past the time frame to administer the vaccination to prevent the disease from becoming a full-fledged case. Yet one or two out of every 1,000 children who get measles will die from complications, according to the CDC. The agency says worldwide travelers returning from Israel and Ukraine-where large outbreaks recently occurred-appear to be spreading the measles in the United States. Residents born prior to 1957 are considered immune to measles but those born in 1957 or after should verify vaccination history.

There have been six confirmed reports of measles cases in Texas this year.
Public Health said about 5 percent of people develop a rash after their first vaccination, but after the 72-hour window that rash could be due to the full-blown disease, not the immunization.
Clark County Public Health has confirmed 49 cases of the measles, while King County has at least one confirmed case, CNN reported. The illness typically begins with a high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes and progresses to a rash with red spots.
In January, 79 cases of measles were confirmed across 10 states, including Texas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Anyone who believes they have measles should contact their health care provider as soon as possible.
