County urges adults to be aware of their vaccination history

PROVO UT- APRIL 29 A nurse gives Michaella a measles mumps and rubella virus vaccine made by Merck at the Utah County Health Department

Azar warned of the potentially life-threatening effects of this and other communicable diseases. That stands as the most cases of measles in the U.S.in 25 years, marking concerning regression in medical progress against communicable diseases.

As of April 26, 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tallied 704 incidents of measles in 22 states since the beginning of the year.

More than 700 cases of measles have been confirmed across the US, not yet in Utah, but Miner said it is imminent. "And as a result, particularly in pockets where there are lots of people who are not vaccinated, there have been outbreaks".

Teenagers and adults who do not have evidence of immunity against measles should get two doses of MMR vaccine separated by at least 28 days.

Infants 6 through 11 months of age should receive one dose of MMR vaccine.

There is no risk in getting an additional dose of the MMR vaccine for individuals who may have already received it. Clinic hours are: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: 9 AM-4 PM and on Wednesday: 1-8 PM.

If you're a parent, talk to your child's doctor to make sure your child is up to date on all of his or her scheduled vaccinations. If not, Nasson Health Care would give both shots, she said. "They are your partners, and they are committed to caring for your child's health".

The best way to prevent a measles infection is vaccination.

Five cases have been reported in Tennessee.

"All residents are advised to know their immune status and be vaccinated against measles if there is a risk of contracting the disease". Additionally, all 40 were age-eligible for vaccination. Aside from the United States, measles is taking Israel, Thailand, and Tunisia by storm.

Measles is an extremely contagious illness caused by a virus that spreads through the air. The more people who are immunized, the less likely the virus is to spread.

Yesterday, one of the infected people was at the Enterprise Rent-A-Car location at 2260 Babcock Boulevard, meaning that anyone there from 2 to 5 p.m. could have been exposed. Free MMR vaccines are available to children participating in the Vaccines for Children Program and for those who may qualify based on local health department fee schedules.

Data show the vaccine is most effective if it's administered when a person is at least one year old. "If I think I've been exposed to measles and having symptoms, I'd call my doctor".

From the time a person is exposed to measles, it can take seven to 21 days for signs and symptoms to appear.

Health experts continue to stress the importance of the vaccination.

Some parents wonder whether it is safe for children to get multiple vaccines in a day.

In America, the death rate is one or two people per thousand, Sheffield said.

In places such as NY or countries hit by the outbreak, where infants are exposed to the virus, early vaccination is a precaution that may be worth taking.
