Are we bored yet? Measles in WA school, 25 un(der)vaccinated kids at home

Just a quick one - a student in a Washington State Primary school (remember that state with the highest rate of vaccine exemption) has come down with measles. 25 un/dervaccinated children have to stay home until they have 2xMMR or the incubation period is over.

Are we bored of these news yet? Can parents get their children vaccinated already?

Updated 11/4/2012: the child did not have measles after all, which is quite a relief. Meanwhile, Woodland Primary School have cancelled Monday's free immunization clinic for students who have had only one MMR, which is downright silly. I hope the parents who had the fright will get the second MMR after all.
