Ohio Health Department Urges Vaccines As Classes Start
The Ohio Department of Health is urging parents to make sure children are up-to-date on vaccinations to protect them and their classmates as they begin a new school year.
The department says children who aren’t vaccinated have a higher risk of contracting and spreading illnesses such as measles and mumps. Ohio has dealt with outbreaks of both of those diseases this year.
The mumps outbreak in central Ohio stood at 479 cases as of this week, with just over half of those cases linked to Ohio State University.
Separately, the state says 377 cases of measles have been linked to an outbreak that began in Knox County. It started with Amish people who had traveled to the Philippines, which has had a measles epidemic.
