    As you may be aware, there have been many media reports regarding the measles virus.  Per the Center for Disease Control, (CDC), measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus.  It spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing.  Measles starts with a fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, sore throat, and is followed by a rash that spreads all over the body.

    The best way to prevent measles, per the CDC, is to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) shot.  Pennsylvania law requires immunizations for attendance at schools; however, under the law, exemptions are permitted for medical and religious reasons.
    Click here to learn more about the MMR vaccination and where you can have your child vaccinated free of charge:
