Measles Outbreak: Is your CNC program ready?

With the recent measles outbreak, it’s a good opportunity to review policies and procedures to ensure that you are meeting requirements and following public health expectations. Do you continue to provide information to parents about immunization? Do you understand public health expectations for documenting children’s immunization and developing an exclusion plan? Canada Public Health has weekly monitoring reports on measles and a parent’s guide to immunization. HealthLinkBC also has multilingual information about vaccination that you can share with parents. Contact your local public health office for more information.
