At this time, this case has not been linked to any other measles cases.

One case of measles has been confirmed in Denton County raising the statewide total to seven, according to health officials.

This outbreak is leading to plenty of false alarms in Eugene, and health care providers said people are rushing to the doctor out of fear and lack of information.

Someone in Denton County has come down with the measles.

At least 5 measles cases have been reported in Harris, Montgomery and Galveston Counties. Ten states including Texas have reported measles cases; the states are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington. 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.

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

Measles is often brought into the United States by unvaccinated people who become infected in other countries, says the CDC.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends two doses of measles vaccine, one given at between 12 months and 15 months of age and one between ages 4 and 6.

"Getting vaccinated protects you as well as those who are unable to receive vaccines due to age or medical conditions", said Michelle Beall, Pharm.D., Clinical Pharmacist, Brookshire Grocery Company.

A hallmark of measles is a rash that begins as flat, red spots on the face and spreads down the neck to the rest of the body. Health officials say the shots are safe and effective, providing about 93 percent protection with one dose and 97 percent with two doses.

In 2018, there were 17 outbreaks and about 350 diagnosed cases of measles in the U.S. Previous year was the highest number of cases since 2014, which had ten reported cases. A possible sixth case in Texas is awaiting lab confirmation.

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).
