With all the talk about the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, i'm a little scared. Is there a cure for Ebola? A vaccine for Ebola perhaps?

Hi Jenny,

Thanks for your question! I understand your concern. There is no known cure for Ebola and no vaccine. Those who are at highest risk of contracting Ebola are located in, or are planning immediate travel to, West Africa. Countries including Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are currently experiencing a major Ebola outbreak. There is little risk of contracting Ebola in the US.

I hope that answer gives you some assurance. Let us know if you have any more questions.

Warm Wishes,
