The high number of mosquitoes in the area has caused some concern among the general public. The City of McAllen is taking measure to spray the residential areas and control the mosquito population as much as possible.

There are 18 different states in the United States that allow non-medical exemptions, or NMEs. A non-medical exemption allows a parent to opt out of vaccinating their children for non-medical reasons, such as personal or religious beliefs.

Higher rates of non-medical exemptions are found in some urban centers like Seattle and Austin. Exemption hotspots were also found in some rural areas, such as parts of Idaho and Oregon.
