  • Measles Misinformation Draws The Attention Of Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer

As Canada's Chief Public Health Officer, I am very concerned to see vaccine-preventable diseases, particularly those as serious and highly contagious as measles, making a comeback in Canada and around the globe. According to Dr. Theresa Tam, some parents are less scared of the measles itself than they are of the prevention of it, their sources of doubt being the measles misinformation they found online which can be misleading or downright false.

She says doctors need to help parents distinguish fact from fiction.

There are now 27 confirmed cases, with a further 20 suspected cases being checked.

"How we talk to parents who have questions about vaccines can have a direct effect on improving their confidence and supporting them in getting their children vaccinated", Tam says in her statement.

People who may have come in contact should be alert for measles symptoms, which include a high fever, runny nose, cough and sore red eyes.

The Ministry of Health is working closely with Pharmac and Canterbury DHB to respond to the local Canterbury measles outbreak and ensure our national immunisation schedule continues on track elsewhere in the country.

The public health agency's most recent vaccination report says that the incidence of measles has nearly reached zero as a result of the measles vaccine. "And the second dose of the vaccine is for that small percentage who do not gain immunity from that first vaccine", he said.

The initial child with measles was unvaccinated and acquired measles on a visit to Israel, where a large outbreak of the disease is occurring.

"Measles is a highly infectious airborne virus which affects both children and adults". The disease most often spreads before people even know they are sick. Some have spoken of hard recoveries that have taken weeks or months, sometimes leaving permanent disabilities, and heartbreakingly, some have spoken about losing their children.

New York City health officials say a child should get a measles vaccine on or after their first birthday.
