Concern Raised over Americans Traveling to Israel for Passover

ATLANTA, April 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As Americans travel to Israel for the Jewish holiday of Passover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises all travelers to ensure they are protected from measles before departing, because of a measles outbreak in Israel.
