Measles Alert: CDC Issues Health Advisory as Global Cases Surge

Breaking News: CDC Issues Health Alert Network Advisory for Measles

In recent times, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory due to the increasing number of measles cases both domestically and globally. The advisory aims to alert healthcare providers about 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, as well as 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.

Healthcare providers should stay informed and follow the guidelines outlined in the advisory to help prevent the spread of measles in their communities. For more in-depth information, including background details, recommendations for the public, and additional resources, please refer to the FULL HAN ADVISORY.
