Monday's HOT MIC
Gosh, if only there were some sort of, I don't know...vaccine...or something to get rid of this problem:
More from ABC News:
A spokesperson for the agency told ABC News that, "Those who were considered most at risk are being contacted directly by health officials."
In the statement, the agency said anyone else concerned about possible measles infection should "call a health care provider before going to a medical office or emergency department."
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, anyone traveling internationally "is at risk of getting infected" and should make sure they are up-to-date with measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccinations to protect themselves and the larger community.
The agency added that the "majority of people who get the measles were unvaccinated."
Last year, 120 people from 15 states reported contracting measles, according to the CDC. The agency said that the majority of people who contract the disease are unvaccinated.
In 2014, a record 667 cases of measles were reported to the CDC -- the greatest number since measles was declared eradicated in the U.S. in 2000.
Thanks hippies, for bringing back an eradicated disease.
