VANCOUVER, Wash. – The outbreak of measles can be traced to the Bible study class at the Grayspont Christian Church for the Slavic Christian Academy. The class faces disease at Christmas, says school director Andre Dolbinin. Clark County employees have not confirmed the relationship.
He said the boy was recovering at home and his parents were asked to examine the child's blood.
"If the disease is gone, he is welcome.
He said the academy and the churches are related to encouraging members to receive vaccinations for themselves and their children.

Dolbbin believes that a girl visiting Florida during Christmas has brought the infection to Clark County. The Florida Department of Health reported four unvaccinated cases of measles in December. Clark County Public Health Department views Florida or any other outbreak in New York as possible sources of outbreak.
Health authorities said on Monday that there are already 35 confirmed cases of measles in the Clark County outbreak
