OHIO OUTBREAKS-VACCINES
Governor's order eases access to vaccines amid Ohio outbreaks; SW Ohio measles case identified

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 4:42 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Ohio's governor has issued an executive order to let pharmacists administer vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella as two outbreaks continue to grow.

Most of the nation's measles cases stem from an outbreak in unvaccinated Amish communities in Ohio. About 250 cases are confirmed. Separately, at least 415 mumps cases are reported in central Ohio, with 231 of those linked to Ohio State University.

Gov. John Kasich's Monday order expands access to the vaccinations for 90 days.

Meanwhile, state and local health officials confirm an infant has measles in southwest Ohio's Highland County. They say the baby's family had traveled into the outbreak area in north-central Ohio. State officials say the number of Highland County cases could rise.

Health officials are urging people to be fully vaccinated.
