Major Measles Outbreaks Possible in Wake of COVID-19 Pandemic


COVID-19 Pandemic Negatively Impacts Immunization of Children Against Disease

Health Editor’s Note: While flu cases are down during this pandemic due to consistent measures, of many people,  to stop the spread of COVID-19 we are also seeing that children are not being taken to their regular, yearly appointments due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. Infants follow a of schedule of pediatrician appointment every  few months.  Missed appointments mean missed opportunities to receive vaccines.  Measles is a particularly virulent and dangerous disease, seen in those who are not vaccinated against this virus. We will see more illnesses in babies and children from bacterial and viral diseases that they routinely receive vaccines against. This is another horrible road that this pandemic will lead us on…..Carol
