Forty eight Cases of Measles Reported in Minnesota Children

Minnesota’s Hennepin County is currently experiencing an outbreak of measles cases. Most of the cases (46 out of 48) are 10 years of age or younger and 41 are Somali-American children. Forty-five of the cases are confirmed to be unvaccinated; vaccination status of the remaining cases has not yet been determined. The local Somali community has been targeted for years with misinformation about a connection between vaccination and autism.
