Measles Misinformation Draws The Attention Of Canada's Chief Public Health Officer

Department of Health

Clark County Public Health says they confirmed a new case yesterday, bringing the county's total to 71 confirmed cases.

Tam mentioned in a lengthy statement on Tuesday that health care providers need to help parents realize what information is accurate and what is not especially if they are on the front lines of the battle.

So far, 17 cases of measles have been identified in Metro Vancouver and linked to French schools in an outbreak that started three weeks ago.

The Department of Health (DOH) reiterated its appeal to parents or guardians of preschool and grade school pupils to have the children vaccinated before school comes to a close.

Tam mentioned that she has a plan to collaborate with stakeholders and partners in order to make the health of children a shared priority by addressing the misinformation around vaccines and its alternatives.

The MMR vaccine can be issued by most medical practices and covers Mumps, Measles, and Rubella, also known as German Measles.

"We are targeting to vaccinate our schoolchildren at this time before school closes on April 5, since we are nearly finished vaccinating in our health centers", said Health Secretary Francisco Duque III.

Measles is highly contagious and is spread in the air through coughing or sneezing by someone who is unwell with the disease.

Earlier this month, authorities warned Australians who holiday in Bali and visitors to the Sydney Opera House to be on the look out for measles symptoms after a young woman and a baby contracted the disease. "And the second dose of the vaccine is for that small percentage who do not gain immunity from that first vaccine", he said. From my perspective, even one child dying of measles is unacceptable.

For children, the effects of the disease can be worse.

New York City health officials say a child should get a measles vaccine on or after their first birthday. Some have spoken of hard recoveries that have taken weeks or months, sometimes leaving permanent disabilities, and heartbreakingly, some have spoken about losing their children.
