CDC Warns Of Measles Outbreak- But New England Immune So Far

placeholder image

There's an alert out for measles across the country. The CDC says so far this year, there are 58 cases in 17 states.

That already equals the number of cases reported in all of 2023.

Once eradicated, the CDC is once again urging families to make sure they get their measles vaccines.

Doctors say, on average, one infected person infects 12 to 18 unvaccinated people.

The airborne virus can linger in the air long after someone leaves a room.

Although the alert is for the entire nation, New England States have been immune from the disease although there are cases in New York.
