Everybody in the state of Texas gets sick at one point in their lives.

As you're reading this, there's bound to be at least one person you know of that is feeling under the weather. That one person may even be you! But, for most of us, the sicknesses we deal with are simple, and go away after a few days.

However, there are certain illnesses that once were eliminated due to vaccines in across the nation. It seems however, due to a variety of factors, certain diseases are returning after years of not being in the state. One of the diseases is currently worrying many doctors in the state of Texas.

The disease in question is the Measles, and the concern starts in schools of the state.

Measles Outbreak Concerns In The State Of Texas

According to CBS News Texas, Doctors main point of worry is parents that haven't vaccinated their child for school. Data shows that a jump in parents not getting their child vaccinated in kindergarten has grown threefold. Due to the conscientious exceptions Texas allows, unvaccinated children has from 1.35% in 2013-2014, to 3.24% in 2022-2023.

This has many parents in the state worried, especially those with endangered immune systems. One parent, who is the mother of 11-year-old triplets, Liz Pinon, told CBS News, this affects her decision to send her kids to school:

"If my kids get sick, it's not like your average child. It will likely be a stay in the hospital.  It will be more detrimental to them, and it might shorten their life span...I think we have to think of the greater good."

At the time of writing, the new data for the new year hasn't been released. As this situation develops, we will have more information when it becomes available.
