NYS Health Dept. Lowering Age Requirement for Measles Vaccination

New York state is giving the green light to give measles vaccinations to children as young as six-months-old.

The state has seen a surge in measles cases, so the health department is lowering the age requirements in affected areas.

Typically, children would get their vaccines around age one.

More than 700 cases of measles have been recorded in the U.S. so far this year, the highest number since 1994.
