Breaking News: CDC Issues Health Alert Network Advisory for Measles

Recently, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory to address the increasing number of measles cases both domestically and globally. This advisory aims to alert healthcare 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. By ensuring that individuals are immunized, we can work towards reducing the number of cases and outbreaks. It is important for parents to ensure that their children receive all recommended vaccinations in a timely manner.

For more in-depth information, including background details, recommendations for the public, 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 the community. It is also important for individuals who have been exposed to someone with measles or have symptoms of measles to seek medical attention immediately.
