County prepared for measles
Lake County Record-Bee

Although Lake County has no reported cases of the measles, healthcare facilities are preparing, just in case the outbreak reaches the area.

The county health department has vaccine in stock. They also expect to receive an order of state funded vaccine. In addition, county public health officer Dr. Karen Tait has been attending conferences on the disease and forwarding the findings to local physicians.

“We’ve been disseminating information,” said Sherylin Taylor, the Lake County public health department’s Nursing Director. “We do recognize that a lot of the newer providers haven’t seen measles.”
