Vaccination Key to Preventing Measles Outbreaks, CDC Issues Health Alert

Breaking News: CDC Issues Health Alert Network Advisory for Measles

In response to the growing number of measles cases both globally and domestically, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory. The advisory aims to alert health providers to this growing issue and provide recommendations on how to prevent new cases and outbreaks in the US.

It is crucial for children in the US and those traveling internationally, who are 6 months and older, to be up to date on their MMR vaccination. This will help protect them from contracting and spreading the measles virus. By ensuring that individuals are immunized, we can work towards reducing the number of cases and outbreaks.

Healthcare providers are encouraged to stay informed and follow the guidelines outlined in the advisory to help prevent the spread of measles in the community. For more in-depth information, including background details, recommendations for the public, and additional resources, please refer to the FULL HAN ADVISORY.
