Measles Update

Florida has confirmed cases of the measles. If you’re pregnant, the best protection for your baby is for you to have been vaccinated. The MMR vaccine is not recommended during pregnancy; however, you can help prevent infection by staying away from infected people and telling your provider right away if you’ve been in contact with an infected person.

Please see the important information below from the Florida Department of Health and the CDC, and if you have questions, be sure to ask your provider.
