Dear Families,

The health and well-being of New York City students, families, and staff is a top priority for the Department of Education, and we would like to share important information about two recent measles cases in public school students. These students did not attend school while infectious, and students have not been at risk of contracting measles while at school. We are sharing this information out of an abundance of caution and to remind you of our vaccination policy.

Vaccination is the best way to prevent measles. Anyone who has received two doses of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine is highly unlikely to get this infection. At this time, the risk to students in public schools remains extremely low given the high rate of vaccination in students.

紐約市學生、家庭及員工的健康是教育局的第一要務,因此我們要告知您有關最近兩宗公 立學校學生出現麻疹的病例。這些學生在可感染別人時沒有上學,在學校的學生也並沒有 感染麻疹的風險。 接種疫苗是預防麻疹的最佳方法。任何接種了兩劑麻疹、腮腺炎、德國麻疹混合疫苗 (MMR)的人感染這種疾病的可能性極小。目前,鑒於學生當中接種疫苗的比率非常 高,公立學校學生所面臨的感染風險仍然非常低。

要提醒您的是,紐約州公共健康法規定,除非獲准免於接種疫苗,否則所有學生都必須接 種麻疹疫苗或顯示對麻疹已具有免疫力才能就讀公立學校。您可以上網查閲學校的免疫要 求,網址是,也可瀏覽網站 並搜索 「immunization requirements」(免疫要求)。
