Measles Update - Health Officials Continue to Stress Importance of Getting Vaccine


We’re in the heart of summer vacation season, and the Fond du Lac County Health Department is reminding travelers to make sure their vaccinations are up-to-date, especially if they have a trip planned to an area with a high number of measles cases. As of July 3rd, the Centers for Disease Control reported just over 1,100 individual cases of the measles confirmed in 28 states. Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says while the disease isn’t expected to spread as quickly during the summer, now is the time to prepare for a more active fall and winter season. “In preparation, now is the time we can act on it, now is the time we can work to prevent any quick spread here in Wisconsin,” Mueller said. “Look into yourself, your family, your friends – you have to make sure you’re vaccinated to be protected – nobody is immune to this.” Measles cases have been reported as close as Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan. None have been reported in Wisconsin or Minnesota so far.
