Measles in San Diego Update

Finally, a brief update on the measles in San Diego...

This outbreak constitutes the first measles outbreak in San Diego's County in 17 years. It was said to have expanded from 4 children to 10 by 2/11/08 and 6 new patients including 4 infants are awaiting diagnosis confirmation. 

50 children at a city charter school and day care have been told to say at home because of having had potential contact with one of the patients. These specifically are children who had not been vaccinated because they were two young or their parents chose not to have them vaccinated.
