In brief: Vaccination

Since the virus can spread from infected patients before they become physically ill, the only sure method of prevention or control is vaccination.
Outbreaks this year in Houston and Ohio have been traced to imported cases (air travel) and spread to secondary contacts who were not vaccinated or had received only one dose.
