As a parent few things are scarier than the idea of my child being exposed to something like the measles. I realize that many people just think of measles like a rash but it is a disease that we have developed immunizations against for a reason. Prior to having these immunizations people died from the measles and the thought of my child having any illness that could kill him or her is frightening to say the least. Since I had concerns after seeing the recent outbreak of the measles that has been spreading throughout the US I wanted to know what I could do to protect my children and I thought that I would share that information with you.
Steps to Prevent Measles
Since immunizations have been such a hot topic, I personally try to avoid talking about them too much. All infants older than 6 months and people who were born after 1957 should consider getting the immunization if they have not already. During an outbreak this immunization can be the difference between life and death.
