The Texas Department of State Health Services said Texas had 11 confirmed cases so far this year, based on figures as of Friday. Six in the last week were in Tarrant County, the department said, but county Public Health officials in Fort Worth later updated that number to report a total of nine cases.
Dallas and Denton counties each reported two measles cases, Harris County has one.
Tarrant County Public Health experts traced some of the area's measles cases to an adult who had traveled outside the U.S., the agency said. Further details about the person and where he or she traveled were not immediately released.
"Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, 90 percent of the people close to that person who are not immune or vaccinated will also become infected with the measles virus," according to state health officials.
Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus. The disease of measles and the virus that causes it share the same name. The disease is also called rubeola.
Measles causes fever, runny nose, cough and a rash all over the body. About one out of 10 children with measles also gets an ear infection, and up to one out of 20 gets pneumonia. For every 1,000 children who get measles, one or two will die.
While measles is almost gone from the United States, it still kills nearly 200,000 people each year around the world. Measles can also make a pregnant woman have a miscarriage or give birth prematurely. For more information, visit the Complications page.
2013 Outbreaks in New York and North Carolina
This year, measles outbreaks have occurred in several states. One outbreak, in New York, is the largest outbreak in 15 years in the United States. An outbreak in North Carolina has also resulted in numerous cases.
A measles epidemic is sweeping through districts of northern Syria, with up to 7,000 known cases, an indication that humanitarian needs are increasing and the country’s healthcare system is in a state of collapse after more than two years of civil war. Teams from the international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) have vaccinated more than 75,000 children in the provinces of Aleppo, Ar-Raqqah and Idlib in an effort to stem the epidemic among a population previously unused to outbreaks of this kind.

Klenner administered ascorbate by injection, and, as Lendon H. Smith describes in great detail in the Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C: The Clinical Experiences of Frederick R. Klenner, M.D., Klenner found that “the most effective route was intravenous, but the intramuscular route was satisfactory. He gave at least 350 mg per kilogram of body weight.” That quantity per day is a dose of 25,000-30,000 mg or so for an adult. Yet, Smith adds, “With 350 mg per kilogram of body weight every two hours, he could stop measles and dry up chicken pox.”
This is indeed a large amount of vitamin C. Such use exemplifies the modern orthomolecular physician. Klenner’s doses were enormous, flexible and symptom-driven. The sicker the patient, the higher the dose. Massive ascorbate treatment cured every one of 60 polio cases Klenner saw. He published his report in Southern Medicine and Surgery in July of 1949. (7) All patients were well in three days. None had any paralysis.

So, it's up to each person who may be in an area like Texas is notifying people of now. To vaccinate? Stay away from people who may be infected or nothing at all? It's a personal matter each has to live with the result.

Can't these people see that their evidence if flawed, don't they even look back at the hearing tests from the sixties in schools? Almost everyone had the measles back then and there was no difference, kids didn't listen to their teachers or parents back then, but could hear the ice cream truck coming from four blocks away.
