Illnesses Going Around
Photo Contest - Chance to WIN!!!
Since we're not seeing as many illnesses these days, I thought I'd do something fun here first.
Check out our Spring and Summer Photo Contest
for your chance to win a $100 gift card!
As of May 5, 2018, we're seeing the following illnesses.
As many of you are aware, measles is in our county.
Be sure your kids are up to date on vaccines.
See Dr. Stuppy's Measles Outbreaks: What can you do to protect your family?
for more information.
A list of known locations of possible exposure will be updated on a site called Prepare Metro KC
If you think your family was at one of these locations
, call the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment at 913-477-8343 or the KDHE Epidemiology hotline at 877-427-7317.
At this time, the health department is NOT recommending giving children the MMR vaccine early. We will let you know if that changes.
If your child has symptoms of any illness, see our Illnesses page
for treatment tips or the specific page to which each illness or condition is hyperlinked. If you're not sure how quickly you need to have your child seen, see our Symptom Decision Chart
