Measles Information for Parents

Monday, February 2, 2015

Measles Outbreak in South Dakota 

The South Dakota Department of Health (DOH) is investigating an outbreak of measles that occurred in Mitchell. In addition, a case of measles has been reported in Sioux Falls bringing the total number of cases reported to 14. As measles has rarely been seen in South Dakota the following information is being provided to educate parents about measles and what parents can do to protect their children. Information in this guidance was adapted from material developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Immunization Action Coalition, and the Washington and Ohio States Department of Health.

 

KEY ACTION POINT: What parents should do now

Parents should review the immunization records of their children and identify those who are not up-to-date with their measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. Two doses of MMR are required for school entrance. It is advised to vaccinate your children if there is not a medical contraindication. If your child is not vaccinated and a case of measles occurs in the school, your child will be excluded until 21 days after rash onset in the last case of measles.
