Measles Outbreaks Spread In U.S.

The outbreak of measles exposure in Metro Detroit has now spread to Oakland, Wayne and Macomb County with 22 confirmed cases.

Measles is an extremely contagious disease caused by a virus that spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Measles starts with fever and soon causes a cough, runny nose and red eyes before a rash of tiny, red spots occurs.

The metro Detroit outbreak has been linked to a person who was visiting from Israel two weeks ago and had stayed in New York, where there's a measles outbreak.

Officials say people may have been exposed this month in Detroit and in the suburbs of Oak Park, Berkley, Farmington Hills, Royal Oak and Southfield, including at synagogues, Jewish educational institutions, a hospital and grocery stores and just Thursday, exposure to the virus was confirmed in Macomb County at Bank of America at 45194 Romeo Plank Road.

Vaccination

The CDC recommends children get two doses of MMR vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Children can receive the second dose earlier as long as it is at least 28 days after the first dose. Adults who do not have evidence of immunity should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine. Pregnant women should not get MMR vaccine.
