Petersen, M.D., M.P.H, Incident Manager for CDC’s Zika Response and Director, Division of Vector-Borne Diseases. “This could lead to hundreds of infants being born with microcephaly or other birth defects in the coming year. In 2015 and 2016, large outbreaks of Zika virus occurred in the Americas, resulting in an increase in travel-associated cases in US states, widespread transmission in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, and limited local transmission in Florida and Texas.

In 2017, the number of reported Zika virus disease cases in the United States started to decline. Zika Travel Recommendations by Traveler Type and Country Category. Know before you go!

Zika continues to be a problem in many parts of the world. There is no vaccine to prevent infection. Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus.

  • Hasnt Zika been around since the 50’s? How did you find a vaccine so quick when you apparently had the outbreak you said occured? Of the 400 cases only 14 in South America proved positive for Zika. Stop the lies already!!

  • The CDC is a fraudulent U.S. criminal enterprise. They are being exposed all over the globe as we speak. They are the reason we have an opioid problem here in the U.S. They are being investigated currently and will be exposed. Thank you to those that are going to expose them it is about time!

  • Will they help protect people when they’re about to get zika virus and I’m sorry to say this but I’ve been taking care of myself when I was at home or at work I took plenty of rest and also taking care of myself with my family with healthy foods and healthy exercise and also relaxation

  • You freaks ain’t vaccinating me with your blue blood and satanic injections…..come find me…I promise I’ll stop you before you touch me…FACT

  • Soo all of that prevention is because the pathogen is spread by water and blood contact, plus the main transmission vector is the mosquito right?

  • also, where is the emphasis on birth control? if you’re not planning to get pregnant Zika is another good reason to have a good plan for avoiding pregnancy. ask your family doctor about an IUD, Nexplanon, the patch, the Nuvaring, etc.

  • The government made zika just as they made “birth control” they forced many puerto rican women to take that made them unable to ever bear children again
