Measles, mumps cases confirmed in Arizona

In 2019, Arizona health officials have already confirmed cases of measles and mumps in Arizona. Will Humble, executive director of the Arizona Public Health Association, joined us on “Arizona Horizon” to discuss the repercussions of not getting vaccinated.

Children typically receive the first MMR vaccination when they’re 12 months old and their second vaccination when they’re 4 to 5 years old. In Maricopa County, immunization rates have steadily declined.

Earlier this month, a Chandler student at Hamilton High School was diagnosed with mumps. This was the second case of mumps reported in Maricopa County this year.
