A new measles outbreak has affected three siblings.
Their parents were vaccinated but not their older brother.
The disease, which can cause mild to moderate illness, has affected both of them and their parents.
They’ve had two doses of MMR vaccine in the past week and were treated for mild fever, cough, sore throat and cold.
The younger sibling is now under a fever treatment.
The older sibling is recovering and not showing any symptoms.
Their mother said she was feeling well, but the younger sister, who also has measles, was unwell.
The two have been staying in their home for the past four days.
Their mother is still worried.
She said she’s hoping that they will be able to get vaccinated for the next two weeks.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is trying to get the measles vaccines ready for use in the United States by the end of the month.CDC Director Tom Frieden told reporters Tuesday that the agency is trying hard to make sure everyone gets the vaccines.
The outbreak of the measles in the northeastern U.S. is one of the worst outbreaks of the disease in recent years.
It has killed over 3,000 people in the U.
