Currently there is a Measles outbreak in the United States. There has been 102 cases of measles reported in January 2015 in the US. This disease is transmitted via airborne, therefore very contagious. 1 in 1000 cases of measles results in death.
In Idaho we have a high rate of families who do not vaccinate. This outbreak is causing significant concerns for non immunized individuals. There has been no credible research that vaccines cause Autism. We are strongly encouraging our patients and families to be sure they are vaccinated with the MMR immunization. The first vaccine for the immunization is at age 1 year.
Please schedule an consult appointment today if you would like to vaccinate yourself or loved one.
