Some adults may need measles vaccine

According to the Centers for Disease Control, from January 1 to April 26 this year, 704 cases of measles have been confirmed in 22 states. "In fact, they're so effective that too many of us are inexperienced with the diseases and ignorant of the seriousness of them".

Dr. Allyn Nakashima, an epidemiologist with the Utah Dept of Health, noted the current trend for people not to avoid vaccination for their children. Patch reports that the "woman, in her 20s, told officials she visited one of many countries struggling with widespread measles outbreaks".

According to Nally from Merck, there have been documented increases in vaccine demand in areas where measles have been confirmed, such as New York City, and that the company is confident in meeting the new demand. "We urge everyone to check to make sure they and their family members are up-to-date on measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine and all other age-appropriate immunizations".

The hope is to stop IN from joining the growing list of states with a measles outbreak. "This recommendation is meant to protect those who may have received killed measles vaccine, which was available in 1963-1967 and was not effective", the agency noted on its website.

The Will County Health Department also reported in a news release that about 1.2% of Will County children in school have religious objections to vaccinations on file, according to Regional Office of Education records.

Normally, the MMR vaccine is given in two doses with the first at 12 to 15 months of age and the second at 4 to 6 years of age.

As of April 9, NY has imposed a sanction that if health officials identify "a person with measles or an unvaccinated child exposed to measles" in certain ZIP codes of Brooklyn, that individual or their parent or guardian could be fined $1,000.


"These are good parents, and majority are concerned about their children", she said, adding that many people now get erroneous information from non-scientific sources they see on social media. Most people born before 1957 are considered immune, because largely everyone was infected at that time, when vaccines were not available.

"If there might be a kid who is developing the measles, we don't want to spread that to everybody else sitting in the waiting room", said Dr. Sarah Springer, who practices medicine at Kids Plus Pediatrics. The most apparent symptom from measles comes a few days later, with small blisters inside the lining of the mouth and red spots on the face and trunk. As for misinformation about the vaccine's link to autism? The state recommends health care workers and college students receive two doses, or provide evidence of immunity.

ACHD recommends that any person who is due for measles vaccination schedule an appointment to receive it from their medical provider.

How should I protect against measles before global travel?

Public health experts hope that the rising awareness will help reverse the course of measles.

Outbreaks of measles occurred when the disease was brought into the country from people who have been overseas, ESR said in a statement on Friday. "They may have received a series of vaccinations when they were younger, but some may not be aware of their vaccination status".
