New York State Dept. of Health - Measles Advisory Alert

A total of 477 confirmed measles cases have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nationwide as of 6/13/2014, surpassing the highest reported yearly total of measles cases since measles was eliminated in the U.S. Sixteen outbreaks throughout the U.S. have accounted for 84% of the cases reported. This includes an outbreak in Ohio with 316 cases to date, the largest single outbreak reported in the U.S. since 2000. The large number of cases this year emphasizes the need for health-care providers to have a heightened awareness of the potential for measles in their communities and the importance of vaccination to prevent measles.
