Samantha Ketterer and Todd Ackerman report:

A nurse at Texas Children’s Hospital has been fired after posting information on social media about a rare measles case in the city, hospital officials said Tuesday.

The hospital took the action four days after learning of the nurse’s posts on a Facebook page called Proud Parents of Unvaccinated Children. Her posts concerned a boy, between 1 and 3 years old, currently receiving treatment at the hospital’s west campus in the Energy Corridor. He acquired measles overseas, the Houston health department has confirmed.
