Two Dozen Unvaccinated Orange County Students Sent Home Over Measles Outbreak
Orange County health officials told about 24 high school students without proof of a measles immunization to go home after they learned that a Huntington Beach High School student who was infected with the disease had attended class when school resumed after winter break. The announcement came as public health officials confirmed 54 cases of measles across California, as well as three other states and Mexico.
