WASHINGTON ST - CHARLES TOWN Telephone 725-5113 its staggering toll of young lives and health," said the health of- ficer. "Immunization, or a shot, given when the child is about a year old, can prevent the dis- ease." Dr. Allara pointed out that this cear will be the year of decision for Jefferson County parents of children under five years of age. "Parents are going to have to make a decision in the very near future as to whether their child should get a measles shot or let the child run the risk of having the disease itself" "Any unprotected child may de- velop measles. There may be a mild case without complication or a more severe one with serious after effects. We have no way of predicting the outcome in any particular child. Because of the otential , riousness, all child- ren should be protected by vac- cine in early life." Dr. Allara urges parents to take advantage of the measles vaccine that is available in Jefferson County now. "The measles vaccine that will be given in this county is to pro- tect children against what is commonly known as the 'bad measles,' or the 'two week meas- les." Dr. Allara continued. "The health department vaccine will be given only to those children in the county who are over 12 months old and under six years old." "Measles is a commons, and cer- tainly one of the most serious communicable diseases of child- hood," the health official said, "It ts caused by a virus which can spread by the air and wind, as well as by direct exposure to a sick person." Cases of measles occur all through the year, but seem to reach epidemic stages in late winter and early spring. By eight to nine months of age, all child- ren are very succeptible, and are likely to develop the disease if exposed to the virus. If a child has the disease itself, it gives permanent immunity. The health officer further stated that the only sure way to protect children against meas- les is to get the vaccine. "No parents in Jefferson Coun- .ty should subject their child to uch a serious disease as measles when they can be immunized so easily." "The measles vaccine of today is given in one injection which gives permanent immunization to the child' against the disease. So far as is known, no 'boosters will be laecessary." The officer said that all pre- school children who have riot had the disear should take the meas- les Vaccine. He pointed out that parents should not confuse the "bad measles,,' with "German or three-day m asles," or other conditions pr ucing a rash, "I.reebmiiie nd, that: in :the e- vent there is doubt as to whether a, child has 6r has *not had the 'two week meas!es," it is wise to take the vaccine, Dr. Allara said. He stated that many p e ts were concerned .with :possible re- actions to the measles vaccine; "Generally thexe a vexy mild reaction or no.reaction, For those children, the reaction is of short duration and usually requires little or no treatment." Dr. Allara concluded by saying that the measles vaccine is a- vailable at the Jefferson County Health Department now for Jeff- erson County residents.
