Why Kentucky public health officials are using the measles outbreak as a chance to get rid of the vaccine
It is an image that has captured the nation’s attention for the last two weeks, as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released its latest data on the number of cases of measles in the United States.
But it is one that has some Kentucky health officials worried.
Public health officials and the governor’s office say that while the measles rate has dropped in Kentucky, there are still 2,300 cases and 1,600 deaths in the state.
The latest figures from the CDC show that there were 933 cases in Kentucky last week and another 2,100 people were vaccinated.
But the total number of measles cases in the U, as well as the number who have died, remain high.
The Kentucky Office of Public Health has been working with state and federal partners to get the measles vaccine into the hands of Kentuckians, said Dr. Jennifer Groskoff, the state’s chief public health officer.
She said it is not uncommon for outbreaks to be over before the outbreak reaches epidemic proportions.
“We’re doing a lot of work to get vaccines in place,” GrosKoff said.
“I would expect to see a lot more cases this week and that’s when we are seeing the highest cases.”
We’re seeing that this is a highly contagious disease.
We’ve had cases of people not getting the measles.
We’re seeing people that are infected, not being able to get vaccinated.
We need to get these vaccines in people’s hands.
-Kentucky public safety officialThe CDC has said that the number has fallen to a low of about 5,000 cases a day in Kentucky.
GrosKoffs office has said the state is getting the most vaccine deliveries it has seen in the last five years, and the number is expected to increase.
But officials say they need to be sure that the vaccines are getting into as many hands as possible.
“There’s a lot we can do to get more vaccines in,” GrazKoffs spokeswoman Lauren Eberhardt said.
She said the CDC has had a strong track record with distributing vaccines in the states of California and New York, and it is also working with the Department of Defense to distribute vaccines to U.H.W. troops.
GrazKons goal is to get to 2 million doses by the end of the year, but she said she expects more states and the U the Centers for Diseases Control and Control will get involved.
“I don’t think that we’re going to see that kind of a drop in the number,” Grieskoff said of the number in Kentucky during a telephone interview from New York.
“We’re not looking at it as a matter of if we’re dropping.
We are looking at how long that drop will be and how many more people are going to be exposed to it.”
Kentucky has been under a lockdown for the past two weeks because of the outbreak.
There has been a spike in measles cases and deaths.
It was the worst outbreak of measles since 2009, when an outbreak of the disease spread to more than 1 million people in the Midwest.
More than 6,000 people have died from measles since it was declared pandemic in December, according to the CDC.
The outbreak began in Indiana and quickly spread to neighboring states, but it quickly spread into more than 60 states.
It is the deadliest measles outbreak in U., history.
