In addition, two new potential exposure locations — both Vancouver schools — have been identified.
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Clark County Public Health has identified two new measles cases and two new exposure locations in its ongoing outbreak investigation.
Public Health spokeswoman Marissa Armstrong released a statement Sunday saying the agency has now identified 61 confirmed cases of the highly contagious virus.
Of the 61 cases confirmed in Clark County, 54 were not immunized against measles. Immunization status couldn’t be verified for five cases, and two cases involved a child who had received only a single dose of the MMR vaccine.
The majority of confirmed Clark County cases — 44 — involve children between the ages of 1 and 10.
