Measles is a highly contagious rash illness that can cause serious disease and complications. Because of successful vaccination programs, measles is now uncommon in the US, but outbreaks from import-associated cases can occur. Join us for an update on measles epidemiology and lessons learned from a recent measles outbreak in the US.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Discuss the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, and outcomes of measles infection
- Interpret current Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations for the use of measles vaccines
- Describe how declining vaccination rates, influenced by anti-vaccine information, sparked a measles outbreak in Minnesota in 2017
- Identify creative collaborations and communication methods to address vaccine confidence
