Measles is on the Rise. Are You and Your Child Protected?
Several cases of measles, a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus, have been reported in the metro area. Measles can be a very serious disease, and can result in ear infections, pneumonia, and in some instances, death.
Measles can be prevented by being vaccinated with MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine which is recommended at 12 months of age.
Check with your health care provider to make sure you and your child have been vaccinated. If you are uninsured, you can be vaccinated in a public health immunization clinic.
