Vaccines don’t have to be scary but here’s how they work

 

Vaccines… check! Now what comes next? 

 

 

What you need to know to protect your family from Measles.

It can be scary and confusing with all the information out there relating to the Measles disease and vaccine. We have provided some information below, click here for more information on Measles and the MMR vaccine. If you have questions, please give our office a call. Please remember that Measles is an airborne disease and can stays active in a room for up to 2 hrs after the infected individual has left the room.


What if my child has a rash?

As a way to protect and prevent any exposure to the Measles disease, we are asking parents to give us a call before entering the office if your child has a full body rash as pictured below, so a provider can check the rash to ensure it is not measles before entering. This will stop any exposure from occurring. While we don’t expect to see many cases here in Clark County, it is always possible and can never be predicted so we are doing what we can to prepare and protect our patients.
