Floridians and Visitors Urged to Get Vaccinated Against Measles

Full Story
With the increase in measles cases across the US, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) is urging Floridians and visitors who have not been immunized to get vaccinated. Although measles was thought to be eradicated in the United States in 2000, the disease has reappeared in recent months in the form of outbreaks in several states. The Centers for Disease Control and Health Protection defines a measles outbreak as three or more cases. As of April 17, 2019, one measles case has been reported to FDOH.
