PHOTOS: Measles Outbreak In Ukraine As Rosh Hashanah Approaches



Ichud Breslov is busy preparing for Rosh Hashanah, which is by far the busiest time of year at the tziyun of Rav Nachman of Breslov ZT”L.

Recently, there has been an outbreak of measles in the Ukraine. The Ukrainian Health Ministry reported that in the past month, they have registered about 700 patients and hundreds of unregistered cases too. In a conversation with the director of the Breslov Uman Clinic, epidemiologist Dr. Kivaytai, and with health experts in Israel’s Ministry of Health, they too have been apprised of the measles situation in Ukraine.

Anyone born in Israel from 1970 onwards has been vaccinated. There is no need for an additional vaccine. Anyone born before 1957 was also immunized. Anyone born between 1957 and 1970 should be vaccinated at a Health Ministry clinic before traveling to Umnan. One may make an appointment in advance by dialing *5400, ‘star’ and then 400.
