Physicians asked to watch for measles, other diseases in Afghanistan evacuees
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a health alert on Sept. 20 for clinicians to watch for cases of measles and other infectious diseases, including mumps, leishmaniasis, and malaria, among Afghans and U.S. citizens recently evacuated from Afghanistan. 

The CDC notice instructs clinicians to notify their local or state health department immediately of any suspected cases of measles and to recommend that patients be vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).
