Measles Outbreak

You've probably heard a lot about the Measles outbreak in the past few weeks - we certainly have!  As you may know, "unvaccinated young children have the highest risk of contracting measles and developing rare but serious complications from the disease."

At APA, we require patients to be up to date with their vaccines by the ages of 2, 5, and 11. A major motivation behind this requirement is protecting our patients, their families, and our community from vaccine-preventable diseases like Measles. Vaccines are safe, save lives, and offer invaluable protection.

Please talk with your APA provider about any questions you have about Measles or vaccines - we're here to work hand in hand for healthy kids!
