Dallas, T.X. -

A megachurch in North Texas is trying to contain a measles outbreak by hosting vaccination clinics.

 

There've been at least 21 cases of measles linked to Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, about 20 miles north of Fort Worth, Texas.

 

The outbreak started when a person who contracted the measles overseas visited the church.

 

Senior pastor Terri Pearsons is encouraging people to get vaccinated, but also says they shouldn't if they've "got this covered" in their household "by faith."
