Measles death in the US

Vox reports:

We started 2015 with one of the worst measles outbreaks in recent history, which originated at Disneyland in California. And today, the US just recorded its first measles death in a dozen years.

According to a news release from the Washington State health department, the (still unidentified) woman was probably exposed to the extremely contagious virus while at a medical facility during an outbreak in Clallam County.

If you or your children haven’t gotten your MMR shot, get vaccinated. See this CDC chart for details.
