“There is no risk of transmission to others at this point from these cases, which involve three individuals who were unvaccinated,” noted Bucks County Health Director Dr. David Damsker. “The first case involves a school-age child.

The other two are directly related to the first case and all three individuals have been isolated from their schoolmates and the general population.”

Dr. Damsker reiterated the importance of being vaccinated to provide the best protection against the measles and other communicable diseases. “There is no substitute for vaccination, which has been proven to be safe and effective,” he added.
