Description:

From January 1 to January 28, 2015, 84 people from 14 states were reported to have measles, a highly contagious respiratory virus which was declared eliminated in the United States in 2000. Most of these cases are part of a large, ongoing outbreak linked to an amusement park in California. Measles is a vaccine-preventable disease, but many parents choose to opt-out of immunizing their children. This webinar examines the current measles outbreak in the U.S. and associated legal issues. Speakers will describe current vaccination recommendations, provide an overview of vaccination laws and exemptions, explore state temporary exclusion laws related to unvaccinated students, and highlight lessons learned by LA County in implementing legal disease control measures.

You may qualify for CLE credit. ASLME is an approved provider of continuing legal education credits in several states. ASLME will also apply for CLE credits in other states upon request.
