February 19: Webcast - The 2015 Measles Outbreak: Exploring the Role of Public Health Law

From January 1 to January 28, 2015, 84 people from 14 states were reported to have measles, a highly contagious respiratory virus which was declared eliminated in the United States in 2000. Most of these cases are part of a large, ongoing outbreak linked to an amusement park in California. Measles is a vaccine-preventable disease, but many parents choose to opt-out of immunizing their children. This webinar examines the current measles outbreak in the U.S. and associated legal issues. Speakers will describe current vaccination recommendations, provide an overview of vaccination laws and exemptions, explore state temporary exclusion laws related to unvaccinated students, and highlight lessons learned by LA County in implementing legal disease control measures.
Each webinar is free and open to all interested parties. Register Now!
