    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — The Maricopa County Department of Public Health has confirmed Saturday morning at least one case of measles. The department says it’s investigating the case involving an international visitor.

    Doctors at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital have been on high alert since measles cases have spiked across the country and overseas, as the Valley has a low measles vaccination rate. To reach herd immunity, where there is enough protection to drastically mitigate the disease from spreading, a region needs at least 95% of the population to be vaccinated.​..
