The Indiana State Department of Health is warning people about a confirmed case of measles in Northern Indiana. However, businesses in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan could be affected.

State officials say they are working closely with health departments in Oakland and Wayne counties to identify possible locations where victims were exposed to the measles. When infected persons sneeze or cough, droplets spray into the air.

According to the CDC, numerous recent US cases of measles have been linked to visits to Israel, Ukraine, and other countries where large outbreaks have occurred.

A special measles vaccination clinic is scheduled Saturday in Oakland County after cases continue to climb there, state health leaders said Friday, April 5. "If you haven't had your kids vaccinated, contact your GP surgery to make arrangement for them to get the MMR and help to provide them and those around them with the best protection". The measles rash kicks in two to four days later.

This is the highest number of measles in the state since 1991 when 65 cases were reported.

The letter shared by the School District says most people in Canada are protected against measles infection through immunizations. Infants are scheduled for the MMR vaccine between 12 and 15 months, leaving those under a year old vulnerable to contracting measles.

Maryland allows for medical and religious exemptions, but vaccination rates have remained high, though they have been dropping for kindergartners who normally are vaccinated before entering school. The rash usually starts a few days after onset of illness.

If you are experiencing the symptoms of measles, stay home and call your healthcare provider right away before going to the doctor's office.

The rash begins on the face as flat, red spots and spreads down the neck and trunk to the rest of the body. If your child received an immunization consent package but has documented measles vaccine elsewhere, please include this information on the immunization consent form in the space provided. Highrisk individuals include those who are unvaccinated or unsure about vaccination status, pregnant women and those who are immune-compromised (have a weakened immune system due to illness and diseases like HIV, malnutrition and/or medications).
