WHITE PLAINS -

The Westchester County Department of Health is offering free measles vaccines Saturday at its White Plains office on Court Street after the virus made its way into the county.

Westchester officials confirmed this week that eight children in Westchester have the measles.

County Executive George Latimer says the children, ranging in age from 6 months to 14 years old, are from the Bedford and Mount Kisco areas.

None of them attend public schools or child care, but they do attend a private school.

If you're interested in getting vaccinated, you must make an appointment before you stop by.

There will also be a clinic open at the Department of Health's office in Mount Kisco Tuesday.
