Measles warning letters: Chicago-area hospitals will tell anti-vaccine parents their kids are at risk

Chicago-area doctors are ratcheting up pressure on local families that opt not to vaccinate their children, following measles outbreaks here and across the country.

In coming weeks, at least three local health systems – NorthShore University HealthSystem, Advocate Aurora Health and Lurie Children’s Hospital – plan to send letters to parents of children who aren’t vaccinated against the measles, saying their children may be at risk of catching the disease and can still get immunized.  Story HERE.
