FSPH Assistant Professor of Epidemiology Dr. Anne Rimoin was interviewed by People Magazine for a Q&A about the spread of the current measles outbreak in the U.S. and what parents can do to keep their kids safe. An excerpt:

In the absence of a local outbreak, there is no need to exclude your child from daycare, experts say. But parents should inquire about the vaccination rates at their schools and child-care centers. "Vaccination rates at your school can impact your child's and your family's health," Rimoin says. She also advises parents to keep young babies away from stadiums, theme parks and other highly crowded areas until they are vaccinated.
