Measles Outbreak Triggered by Unvaccinated Child
Date:3/22/2010

elphia. He said that in a recent Indiana outbreak, a 17-year-old girl was infected with measles on a trip to Romania, and when she came home she went to a church picnic attended by about 500 people. Of that group, 35 were unvaccinated. Three people out of 465 vaccinated got measles, while 31 out of the 35 who were unvaccinated contracted the disease, Offit said.

"That's how highly contagious measles is," he said, pointing out that these people were at an outdoor church picnic, likely without sustained exposure to the infected teenager.

"Parents need to realize that a choice not to get a vaccine is not a risk-free choice," said Offit.

Seward recommended that parents who are concerned talk with their child's pediatrician about the risks and benefits of childhood vaccines, as well as the risks of childhood diseases.
