The Time is Now: Get fully vaccinated
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 28, 2015
FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Laura Oxley, Arizona Health Services: (602) 542-1094
This is a call to action to all Arizonans to protect their community, their family and themselves from measles and many other diseases by being up to date on vaccinations. The measles outbreak that started in Disneyland is here in our state and many people are at risk for the disease which can cause blindness, deafness and even death – especially young children.
“The only way we can protect babies under one year old is to make sure the rest of the community is vaccinated,” said Will Humble, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. “I’m appealing to everyone whose kids are behind in their vaccinations to get it done now. Vaccinations are the number one way for us to stop this disease and save lives.”
