Doctors are warning parents not to have "measles parties" to expose children to the disease. The California Department of Public Health is urging parents not to revive the practice aimed at building immunity in children. Doctors say such events are not a substitution for vaccination and can be very dangerous. Such parties could also spread the disease even further. The highly contagious respiratory disease has spread to multiple states after breaking out at Disneyland in December, infecting more than 100 people so far.
