Latest Measles Outbreak Shows up in Dakota County 22 Aug 11

A new measles outbreak in Minnesota is striking a little too close to home.

The Star Tribune reports two young children in Dakota County were hospitalized Friday, with one in critical condition.

The 1-year-old in critical condition fell ill in early August following a trip to Kenya, where the disease is widespread. A 15-month-old became ill after visiting the family of the first child.

Officials say neither child had been vaccinated.
