  There is a measles outbreak that began before Christmas at Disneyland and is spreading         across California and beyond. This is due to people not updating on their vaccine shots,           along with their kids. The measles are an infectious viral disease causing a fever and a red       rash on the skin, typically occurring in childhood. 

The measles are very contagious, and schools along with hospitals are the key locations to grasping this horrible disease. Health officials said 59 cases of measles have been diagnosed as of Wednesday, with an additional eight related causes spread though, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Utah, and Mexico. Earlier this week, Dr. Gilberto F. Chavez the director of the California Center of Infectious Diseases said "We can expect to see many more cases of this preventable disease unless people take measures to prevent it." "I am asking unvaccinated Californians to consider getting vaccinated against measles."
