BOSTON (CBS) — There are two new measles cases in Massachusetts.

Boston Public Health confirms one case involves a 23-month-old boy from Boston who was vaccinated last year. He had not had the second shot in the series. The boy is back home and recovering.

Health officials say five percent of toddlers can be immune to that first measles shot.

The other case is a teenage boy outside of Boston who was treated in the city.
