Information Regarding the Recent Measles Outbreak in Vancouver

Dear Parents / Guardians,

Attached please find a message from our regional Medical Health Officer (MHO) about the measles outbreak in Vancouver and Washington State. There are some specific directions for both school districts and parents/guardians if there is a CONFIRMED case of measles in your home or school.

The MHO is asking all parents/guardians to confirm their child's MMR vaccination status. If your child does NOT have the recommended 2 doses of the vaccine please visit your local health care provider to receive the vaccine and update their status.  Call ahead to confirm the vaccine's availability.

Should you have any questions about the vaccine or this recommendation please contact your physician or local health care provider.
