Sacramento County officials are investigating a possible case of measles in Elk Grove. It’s the first potential case in the region since more than 73 people were linked to an outbreak at Disneyland in December. Measles is highly contagious. We’ll talk with Dr. Dean Blumberg, associate professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital, about the outbreak and what people can do to mitigate their risk. Plus, Placer County reported its first flu-related death last week. We’ll talk about this year’s flu strain and why those who got a flu shot still might be at risk.
