The three individuals were in close contact with with the initial Multnomah County case, who tested positive for measles January 25, and contracted measles after being in contact with a Clark County measles case.

In response to a cluster of five cases of measles in northwest Harris, Galveston and Montgomery counties, the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District is trying to raise awareness of the risk and the need for up-to-date vaccinations.

This adds to the national measles outbreak seen across the county.

The CDC says there have been 79 cases of measles so far this year in the states that reported data, and it's only February.

All four people are under 18 years old and never received the measles vaccine.

Clark County also listed 11 suspected cases of measles. That includes attending church by video feed and working with employers.

Espinoza said the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine, or MMR vaccine, is 97 percent effective.

Infectious people were at Costco, the airport, a Blazers game and other sites.

"To investigate to identify maybe where they went right away so that we can start notifying the public, you know, that these places you may have been exposed to measles", Christ said.

The Vancouver Clinic, which operates medical offices and urgent-care centers in the area, reported that shots administered jumped from 263 in January 2018 to 1,444 last month, a almost 450 percent increase.

Measles is a highly contagious virus spread through direct contact or through the air.

Statewide in Washington, orders for measles vaccine jumped about 30 percent, climbing from 12,140 doses to 15,780 doses, figures showed.

The department did not release any information about the person who contracted measles, citing patient confidentiality. The vaccine takes effect within 72 hours, health officials said. There were 200 vaccinations given per day last year in that last week of January, and 600 per day this year.
