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.
