CDC issues warning for measles cases in Europe

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is advising that travelers heading to Europe should make sure they are appropriately vaccinated before their trip, as the number of confirmed cases of measles is rising at a rapid rate across Europe. Ukraine has the highest number of confirmed cases, but countries such as France, Greece, and Italy are also seeing the spread of measles outbreaks. 

CDC officials are recommending that anyone who has not been vaccinated, including children between six- and 11-months-old, get vaccinated at least four weeks before travel. Under vaccinated adults should get a booster. For more information please visit the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/measles/plan-for-travel.html.
