CDC Issues Health Alert Network Advisory Regarding Measles

Rising Measles Cases Prompt CDC Health Alert: Why Vaccinations Are Crucial

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Advisory to healthcare providers, warning of an increase in measles cases both domestically and globally. The advisory emphasizes the importance of ensuring that children in the United States and those traveling internationally who are six months and older are up-to-date on their MMR vaccination.

It is crucial for healthcare providers to be aware of the rising number of measles cases and outbreaks in order to prevent the spread of the disease. By ensuring that all eligible individuals are vaccinated, providers can help protect their patients and the community as a whole.

Healthcare providers are urged to read the full HAN Advisory for comprehensive information on the current measles situation, recommendations for the public, and available resources. Staying informed and proactive in promoting vaccination can make a significant impact in controlling the spread of measles.

By following the recommendations outlined in the HAN Advisory, healthcare providers can play a key role in preventing further spread of measles and protecting the health of their patients. Keeping up to date on vaccination guidelines and encouraging vaccination for eligible individuals is essential in combating measles outbreaks.
