Measles Is Just A Rash, Right? 

Our nurses often hear parents say that measles is just a rash. Actually, measles can be very dangerous in some populations of people. Did you know that in 2014, globally 122,0000 died from complications of measles.

Is your child susceptible to measles? Any child that is unvaccinated is susceptible to measles. A susceptible child may need to be held at home for up to 21 days if measles is detected in their school or daycare. This is because you can catch it just by being in a room where someone with measles coughed or sneezed.

Is your child behind on vaccines? If your child is behind on vaccines or you aren't sure if your child is due for vaccines, please contact their doctor today!

Flu Burden in Perspective

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are sharing the burden of disease statistics from the 2017-2018 flu season. In the 2017-2018 flu season, more people were diagnosed with the flu than the combined populations of Texas and Florida. There were more flu related deaths (79,000) than the average number of people who attend the Super Bowl every year.

It is NOT too late to get your flu shot. Call your health care provider or local pharmacy.

Meningococcal Vaccine for School


Meningococcal vaccine (MenACWY) is now required for kids entering grades 7 and 12 in New York State. Meningococcal disease can kill its host within just a few hours. What feels like a cold in the morning can leave a child fighting for his life by dinner time. As the infection progresses, tiny blood vessels are damaged and children who survive their infections may suffer permanent organ damage and loss of fingers, toes, arms or legs. An infection in the brain can result in seizures, permanent neurological deficits and hearing loss.

MenACWY Administration
Meningococcal infections are rare but because of their severity, every possible measure should be taken to prevent them. Requiring the vaccine for school will save lives. No child should have to experience meningococcemia (infection in the blood) or meningococcal meningitis (infection in the spinal fluid) and no family should lose a child to a disease that can be prevented by a vaccine.
