Seventy-nine cases of measles have been reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since the start of this year.
More than 80,000 people caught measles in 2018 across 47 European countries, 15 times as many as two years before.
In Clark County, 34 of the cases were among children age 10 or younger, while just two were among patients older than 18.
At the same time, the World Health Organization said, record numbers of children are getting the vaccine - offering hope that the rise in infections may not last. This is consistent with testing from the first known case (a child) from this outbreak in WA.

"[Immunisation] gaps at local level still offer an open door to the virus", the WHO's European director, Zsuzsanna Jakab, said in a statement. "We can not achieve healthier populations globally, as promised in WHO's vision for the coming five years, if we do not work locally".
Public Health is not providing any additional information about the one case with one dose of MMR in order to protect the patient's privacy.
While immunization coverage has improved overall in the Region, many people remain susceptible. Other collected outbreaks of highly and deadly contagious, but vaccine-preventable diseases are turning exasperatingly routine across the country. Most importantly, at least 95% of every population needs to be immune, through two doses of vaccination or prior exposure to the virus, to ensure community protection for everyone - including babies too young to be vaccinated and others who can not be immunized due to existing diseases and medical conditions.
The tri-county area that includes Multnomah County, Oregon - where three people were diagnosed with measles - is also seeing a spike in vaccinations.
The orders represent only state-supplied vaccines requested through the federal Vaccines for Children program, which provides free immunizations to children who otherwise couldn't afford them. After a few days, a red rash will spread from the face downward. However, it can not make us blind to the people and places that are still being missed.
Measles spreads through direct contact or through the air. One day without a new measles case might seem an indicator of hope the outbreak is over, but it unfortunately doesn't necessarily indicate the end. The Regional Office is working with these countries to implement a coordinated strategy to address targeted programme areas.
