Measles Can Travel       Archived


In the United States, measles is no longer a major health concern because most people have been vaccinated against the disease. However, outbreaks of the childhood illness can still occur. A major international sporting event for children, held in the United States in August 2007, resulted in seven people being diagnosed with the measles. Virtually all measles outbreaks in the United States today are caused by someone bringing the disease in from another country and spreading it to others. Such was the case in this most recent outbreak. This broadcast discusses this outbreak and steps that can be taken to prevent future outbreaks. Created: 2/22/2008 by MMWR. Date Released: 2/28/2008. Series Name: A Minute of Health with CDC.
