As published in the Clinical Infectious Diseases journal, the 2011 measles outbreak in New York has been confirmed to have originated from a fully vaccinated woman, according to a study conducted by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Westchester County Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Scientists have previously known that the measles vaccine could sometimes fail to deliver full protection. Even in cases where vaccinated persons have contracted the disease, it was thought that they could not pass it on to others.
The new findings, however, challenge that conventional wisdom, and raise the question of what other assumptions about vaccines might also turn out to be mistaken.
Immune response of unvaccinated person
In 2011, when a 22-year-old theater employee in New York City was diagnosed with the measles, doctors saw from her records that she had been fully vaccinated against the disease. Assuming that she should be incapable of infecting others, they released her without taking any public health precautions. The new study found, however, that she went on to infect four other people with the measles, two of them also fully vaccinated. Tests also confirmed that the other two people infected, though unvaccinated, had previously been exposed to measles and therefore should have had natural immunity to it.
It is the first confirmed case of measles transmission by someone who had already received two doses of the measles vaccine.
In the new study, researchers analyzed blood samples taken during the treatment of the initial patient, dubbed “Measles Mary.” These tests confirmed that her body did not show any signs of vaccine-induced protection against the measles virus.
