Health care worker sickened with measles was vaccinated

State health commissioner says emergency funding needed Health care worker sickened with measles was vaccinated

The news site WorldNetDaily often runs articles that criticize vaccines and vaccinations, but the site appeared to blame Muslims in Minnesota for not vaccinating their children on May 10.

"Considering the measles epidemic in Romania and the discontinuity in supplying vaccines from the immunisation calendar, Romanian authorities sent European Union a draft order blocking vaccine exports in order to ensure the quantity needed to protect children in Romania". He also has to point out that the disease can be deadly and that, in Somalia, there was no accurate data compiled about measles complications.

Severe complications from measles include pneumonia and inflammation of the brain and a condition called subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) that is fatal and more common in infants, according to the Infectious Diseases Society of America. One individual had a single dose out of the recommended two doses. Immunization rates among Somali Minnesotans have declined sharply in recent years after members of the anti-vaccine movement targeted the community.

"I think it should be up to the parents", Mya Olson, an administrator with South Dakotans for Informed Consent said. "[But] I can not gamble on my son or daughter'". "We want to know you're coming so that we can quarantine you as quickly as possible and hopefully tell you you don't have measles", said Mayo Clinic Health System Pediatrician CJ Menagh.

Kris Ehresmann, infectious disease division director, said state health staff are paid through federal grants to perform certain tasks. On April 30, some "vaccine-concerned groups" held an in-person "Community Resource Meeting" that seemed created to specifically target the Somali-American and Somali immigrant population.

"I started getting more and more emails", Baker said.

The measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine is given to children in two doses, typically the first dose is given to children 12 months old, with a second dose when they are between four to six years old. The measles virus is spread through infected mucus and is often transmitted to others through coughing or sneezing, but can also live in infected airspace for up to 2 hours, according to the CDC. It is a highly contagious diseases, able to infect 90 percent of unimmunized people who are exposed to it, the agency says.
