Measles Alert: CDC Issues Health Advisory Amid Domestic and Global Outbreaks

Breaking News: CDC Issues Health Alert Network Advisory for Measles

In recent times, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory due to the rising number of measles cases both domestically and worldwide. The objective of this advisory is to alert healthcare providers of this growing concern and provide recommendations on how to prevent new cases and outbreaks in the US.

It is imperative for children in the US and those traveling internationally, who are 6 months and older, to be fully immunized with their MMR vaccine. This will help protect them from contracting and spreading the measles virus. By ensuring that individuals are vaccinated, we can work towards reducing the number of cases and outbreaks.

For more comprehensive information, including background details, advice for the public, and additional resources, please refer to the complete HAN ADVISORY. Healthcare providers are encouraged to stay informed and adhere to the guidelines outlined in the advisory to help prevent the spread of measles within their communities.
