Kufstein, Schwaz – Six children from the lowlands were handed over to the Children's Hospital in Innsbruck as a precautionary measure. You may have had contact with a baby of measles in pediatric surgery in Schwaz. Given that children are younger than six months, they can not be vaccinated against measles, the country said on Thursday.
Therapy at the clinic is based on infectious defense of immunoglobulins. Therefore, large parts of the immune system are activated to prevent the possible measles virus as soon as possible. Contact persons older than six months who have no protection against vaccination are protected from measles infection by administering two mumps-rubella vaccines.
It was already known on Tuesday that a woman in the lowlands suffered from measles. On Wednesday there was another case when it was necessary to treat a child from Alpbachtal. Another suspected case of a possible patient has not been confirmed. All three cases appeared independently, it was said.
All contact persons are informed
In close cooperation with district authorities, all necessary measures will be taken to prevent the spread of measles, the country said. "All possible contact persons are informed and informed and all necessary measures are taken from a medical perspective," explains Landessanitätsdirektor Franz Katzgraber. (TT.com)
