Making sure pregnant women in Pennsylvania are protected against Zika is a top priority for Pennsylvania officials.
State Department of Health and Department of Environmental Protection officials came together Thursday to assemble 2,500 Zika prevention kits that will be distributed around the commonwealth.
“Zika has been connected to birth defects,” said Dr. Karen Murphy, Department of Health secretary. “There are currently 40 confirmed cases in Pennsylvania, all of which have been acquired outside the state in areas where the disease is rapidly spreading.”
Family First Health is one of the locations where people can find the prevention kit.
