And the potentially deadly disease is making a comeback mostly in unvaccinated children: Of the total reported cases, 32 were in unvaccinated people, 25 of whom were children under the age of 10.

"The measles vaccine isn't flawless, but one dose is 93 percent effective at preventing illness", Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County Public Health director, said in a news release. The highest number of infections there in over two decades and more cases are popping up in states across the U.S. Thus, the anti-vaxxers refuse to immunize their kids against some of the most prevalent diseases, including the measles virus.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee last week declared a state of emergency because of the outbreak.

The two-dose vaccine against measles was introduced in 1978 in the United States, and by 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared it 'eliminated'. When a person has been vaccinated as recommended, the vaccine is up to 97 percent effective in preventing measles. Outside of the family noted above, there are no reports of secondary cases of measles. The county has had most of the diagnosed cases so far.

Those opposed to certain vaccines also object to an outside authority mandating what they put in their children's bodies, and some have concerns about the combination of the measles vaccine with the mumps and rubella immunizations, which is how it's routinely given.

The mobile phone footage was recorded at around 4pm and then posted on social media. They expressed views which ranged from the far left to the far right.

Though being unvaccinated obviously left the sick individuals vulnerable to the disease, but those cases have not been connected to the Washington state outbreak and it is unclear how they contracted it.

Measles is still a big problem in other parts of the world, and travelers infected overseas can bring back the virus, causing periodic outbreaks.

"We love to normally get out of the house, we go on trips to Target, out to eat, and we've just kind of been staying inside".

The overall vaccination rate for children entering kindergarten in California rose to 95 percent in the two years after the law passed. "And a few days after that, you get that famous rash", explained Alok Patel, MD, a pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

People who think they may have the measles should call their health care provider before showing up so the facility can take steps to limit other people's exposure.
