Montgomery County officials say a resident who traveled to Africa brought back a case of measles and they want to make sure it doesn’t spread.
KYW’s Pat Loeb reports
most people have been vaccinated against measles but County Health department spokesperson Harriet Morton says certain people are still vulnerable — the elderly, babies who’ve not received the whole vaccine and others who are immuno-compromised:

“We want to make sure that people who may have been in the area the person was are aware and if they have any symptoms they can contact their medical provider.”

Morton says the infected traveler was in the main line area in late July — at the Acme in Narberth, the Whole Foods in Wynnewood, a dental office, then at Lankenau Hospital on August 3rd.

She says the situation is a reminder:

“If you’re going to be doing any traveling, make sure that you get travel vaccines.”
