How to get the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine in the next few weeks.
The National Vaccine Administration has confirmed the first cases of measles in the United States since President Donald Trump’s executive order on the virus in February.
But experts say the risk of infection to the general population is low.
More than 99% of those who have received the vaccine have recovered.
“We’re not seeing a spike in cases of the virus,” said Dr. James Kupfer, a medical officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Trump has been pushing the measles vaccination program for more than a year, arguing that it could keep people out of the pandemic.
In an attempt to reassure the public, the U.S. has increased its vaccination coverage, including the addition of about 10 million people over the next three years, according to the CDC.
Despite the increase, some health experts have said the risk to the population is too high to vaccinate anyone.
As of Monday, more than 4,000 people had been confirmed to have received measles in New York state and the District of Columbia, according the New York State Department of Health.
Most have recovered and the remaining are expected to get vaccinated in a few weeks, said Drs.
Jeffrey Siegel, of the Johns Hopkins University and Steven L. Smith, of Northwestern University.
Experts say they have not seen any outbreaks in the state, but they have observed an uptick in cases.
The number of confirmed cases has risen from 1,908 to 2,976, according.
The rate of new infections has jumped from 1 in 10,000 cases to 2 in 10 million cases.
There are currently about 1,500 cases of new measles infections in New Jersey, according, the state health department.
It is unclear how many cases have been reported in the New England states.
Health experts have also been concerned about the potential for an outbreak in the West Coast, where a measles outbreak was reported in March.
Although measles is highly contagious, the disease can be treated with antiviral medication.
The CDC has not issued a death toll for the outbreak, but it has prompted fears among public health officials and lawmakers that there is a risk of further outbreaks.
New York City has a vaccine-preparation center, which is a separate facility from the hospital that delivers the vaccine.
It also is responsible for distributing the vaccine, which will be administered by health workers at the facility, as well as at community clinics and other locations.
A New Jersey health department official said Monday that the city will not be releasing the measles count.
