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