Handwashing is like a "do-it-yourself" vaccine

It involves five simple and effective steps (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry) you can take to reduce the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illness so you can stay healthy. Regular handwashing, particularly before and after certain activities, is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. It's quick, it's simple, and it can keep us all from getting sick.

Handwashing is a win for everyone, except the germs.

FIGHT GERMS. WASH YOUR HANDS-watch this 3 minute video on the proper technique for hand washing.

Measles Information:

There is no anti-viral treatment for measles. Measles is a serious illness:

·         Thirty of every 100 people with measles will develop complications that may require                intervention or even hospitalization, including ear infections, diarrhea, pneumonia, brain damage or disability.

·         About 25 of every 100 measles patients end up in a hospital.

·         One person in every 1,000 people with measles experiences brain swelling.

·         Measles can be deadly and one to two people in every 1,000 with measles will die.

“The fact that measles was controlled in this country by 2000, less than 40 years after vaccines were developed, was proof that vaccinating our population was the right thing to do,” Dr. Meeks said. “It is a strategy that has saved countless lives and prevented untold amounts of illness and suffering. But it is a strategy that requires diligence and consistency.”
