The DSHS is encouraging health care providers in the Houston area to consider a diagnosis of measles for patients showing symptoms after five cases were confirmed this week.

The health department said they are taking all precautionary measures to prevent the disease from spreading.

DCPH will continue to monitor and investigate any measles concerns within Denton County.

Clark County Public Health's latest report on the ongoing measles outbreak shows 50 total confirmed cases.

Forty-eight of the cases are in children 18 years and younger and all the cases either were unvaccinated, undervaccinated or an unknown vaccination status.

DSHS and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend children get a dose of the measles vaccine at 12-15 months of age and again at 4-6 years.

The CDC states measles is a highly contagious virus that spreads through the air via coughing and sneezing.

The case is the seventh in Texas in recent days. The measles vaccine is reported to be very effective; 97 percent of those who receive both vaccinations are immune.

Officials say those people were in close contact with the only other person confirmed to have the measles in Multnomah County.

The measles is highly contagious with nine out of 10 people around the infected subject becoming infected if they are not vaccinated, health officials said. Measles starts with fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat followed by a rash that spreads over the body.

Health officials said it takes two doses of the MMR vaccine to protect you against Measles, Mumps and Rubella - and it will give you peace of mind if you come down with similar symptoms.

The Oregon Health Authority reported that the number of measles vaccines in the last week of January tripled in the tri-county area (Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties).
