CDC Health Alert: Measles Cases Surge and Urgent Action Taken to Prevent New 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 in response to the increasing number of measles cases both globally and domestically. 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. 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.

The FULL HAN ADVISORY provides more in-depth information, including background details, recommendations for the public, and additional resources. 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.
