Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is an acute febrile disease which is more common in the tropical regions. It is an extremely painful disease that affects the bones and is also known as break bone fever. The virus of DHF is transmitted by the aedes aegypti type of female mosquito, which carries the virus and is active during daytime. The characteristic feature of these mosquitoes is that they are low flying.

Measles vaccine
The rise of recent measles outbreaks is making some people who are in their 50s and 60s wonder if they were actually vaccinated for the measles virus or if they need to get their MMR vaccine refreshed. Measles vaccines became available in 1963. If you got the standard two doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine after 1967, you should be protected against the measles for life.
