IT’S TO BELIEVE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THIS IN 2019 BUT THERE’S AN OUTBREAK OF MEASLES RIGHT NOW…AND IT’S NOT CONTAINED JUST THE IN THE PHILIPPINES.
OVER 60 CASES HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED IN VANCOUVER, MOST ARE PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 18.
DR TARA NARULA TOLD CBS ONE OF WORD OF ADVICE IS FOR PEOPLE NOT TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY READ ONLINE. THE BEST ADVICE WILL ALWAYS COME FROM A DOCTOR.
“HEALTH INFORMATION THEY SAY IS NOW DEMOCRATIZED, WHICH IN A WAY IS GOOD. WE WANT OUR PATIENTS TO BE EDUCATED BUT THERE IS MORE OF A LACK OF TRUST IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION.”
THE MAJORITY OF THE CONFIRMED MEASLES CASES ARE FROM THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN IMMUNIZED. HOWEVER, ONE OF THE NEW CASES HAD RECEIVED ONE OF THE TWO RECOMMENDED DOSES OF THE MEASLES, MUMPS AND RUBELLA VACCINE . DR. NARULA ADDS “PEOPLE DON’T ALWAYS FIND THEIR DOCTOR AS FINAL AUTHORITY, THEY GO TO (DR GOOGLE) FOR A SECOND OPINION.”
