Measles Health Alert: CDC Issues Advisory to Prevent Spread of Outbreaks in the US

Breaking News: CDC Issues Health Alert Network Advisory for Measles

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory due to the rising number of measles cases both locally and globally. The advisory aims to alert healthcare providers of this growing concern and provide recommendations on how to prevent new cases and outbreaks in the US.

It is vital for children in the US, as well as those traveling internationally, who are 6 months and older, to be fully immunized with 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.

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