With Measles "Breaking Out" All over the United States, Here Are Some Good Educational Resources
Published March 2019
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 228 cases of measles have been confirmed so far this year (as of March 7) in 12 states, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. With additional cases anticipated, we unfortunately may surpass the 2018 total of 372 reported cases within the first half of 2019.

Measles frequently comes into the U.S. from travelers who contract the disease abroad and bring it into the U.S. This highly communicable virus then spreads in communities with pockets of unvaccinated people.

Whether you live in a state where measles has already occurred or if you simply want to be prepared, the resources below will help you protect your patients from measles.
