Free Measles Vaccinations Available in Westchester County

Dear Peekskill Community,

The Westchester County Department of Health has asked our District to share some information with you in regards to the recently confirmed cases of measles in Westchester.

Attached are letters from the Department of Health that provide important information about measles and how it spreads. We are also providing a flyer that notes where free measles (MMR) vaccinations are available over the next few days.

It is important to note that if you have been properly immunized, you are not at risk for contracting measles. Please see the attached informational flyers from the Health Department for more information on vaccinations. If you are unsure if you or your family have the proper vaccinations, please call your healthcare provider.

For more information, call the NYS Measles Hotline at 1-888-364-4837.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Mauricio
Superintendent of Schools
