Measles-response Toolkit Offered to Health Departments

State and local health department are tasked with the difficult job of leading the response to measles outbreaks when they occur in their communities. To assist in the effort, CDC has developed this one-stop-shop digital toolkit with products that can be used to reach a variety of audiences during measles outbreaks.

The products include accurate, science-based evidence that can help to counter misinformation in communities about measles and MMR vaccine. The kit includes answers to frequently asked questions; a place to direct additional public inquiries to CDC; a measles microsite that you can syndicate on your own website; graphics to post on your websites; and modifiable letter templates (to school principals, parents, etc.) to quickly reach key stakeholders during measles outbreaks.
