Measles - Please Read!!!
We have recently been made aware of cases of Measles in Eastern Kansas. Currently NO cases have been reported in Western Kansas. There is no need to panic, but everyone should be informed of how measles is spread, the symptoms to look for, and prevention.
Please, take a minute and look at the information sheet link below from the CDC. I have also included a link below to the CDC with more information: https://www.cdc.gov/measles/index.html
You may also call the Scott County Health Department at 620-872-5774 for current statistics of measles cases in Kansas, to obtain the MMR vaccination, or for further information and education about measles and it's prevention.
You may also call me with further questions, or needs at 620-872-7660.
