No Measles Cases for NM … Yet

NEW MEXICO HASN’T HAD ANY MEASLES CASES SO FAR IN 2019…BUT JUST ABOUT EVERY STATE AROUND US HAS. THAT FROM DR. MELISSA MARTINEZ WITH UNM HOSPITAL. SHE TELLS NEWSRADIO KKOB THERE’S BEEN A BIG JUMP IN MEASLES CASES NATIONWIDE, BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE ARE GETTING VACCINATED.

SHE SAYS NEW MEXICANS USED TO WORRY ABOUT SOMEONE FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY COMING AND INFECTING RESIDENTS. NOW, SHE SAYS, WE HAVE TO WORRY IN THE SAME WAY ABOUT PEOPLE FROM OTHER STATES.

DR. MARTINEZ SAYS BECAUSE OUR VACCINATION RATE ISN’T HIGH ENOUGH, IT’S NOT A MATTER OF IF, BUT RATHER WHEN NEW MEXICO SEES ITS FIRST MEASLES CASE.
