Why was a Disneyland attraction in California in the news in early March 2015?

The event actually happened in December, 2014. A visitor to the park in mid-December had never been vaccinated for Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR which is given to babies in 3 doses / boosters). That person began a measles outbreak when they went to the park and spread measles through the crowd."Although the person who started the outbreak has not yet been identified, officials suspect it began with an infected person from abroad who visited the Disneyland theme park in southern Californiain mid- to late December. Since then, there have been 145 confirmed measles cases in seven states and three countries linked to the Disneyland outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)." (See: )The incident showcased how easily a communicable disease can spread, and how parents need to vaccinate their babies / toddlers. "Though the national vaccination rate for the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is around 92%, there are communities with pockets of under-vaccinated or unvaccinated children, where an outbreak is much more likely to take hold."
