Health officials continuing to monitor measles outbreak

Health officials warn we are on track for a more infectious year than usual with cases cropping up from coast to coast. The CDC says most of the 107 infections are reported in unvaccinated people

MI is one of almost two dozen states being monitored for a measles outbreak.

The C-D-C says 107 people have reported contracting the virus.

The CDC says most people who get measles in the US did not receive the Mumps - Measles - Rubella vaccine.

The CDC said measles cases in 2018 could outpace 2017, when there were 118 cases in the U.S.

The CDC reports that the majority of people who got measles were unvaccinated.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have confirmed over 100 cases of measles in the United States so far in 2018, and some of those were in North Carolina.

The tunnel would be called the Dugout Loop and would cost fans approximately $1 for the four-minute journey. That project was the subject of a high-profile community presentation back in May .

But that is no longer the case, which is why the state is urging people to stay up-to-date on the recommended vaccines. After infection, the first symptoms only after 10-14 days, and the most acute phase of the disease lasts 7 to 10 days.

The Oregon Health Authority reported a person was contagious with measles when he or she rode the MAX Red Line on Thursday, Aug. 2, possible exposing other transit riders to the virus. Within about 5 days, it fades in the order it appeared. In 2015, 188 people contracted measles.

It causes fever, dry coughs, sore throats, and a skin rash.

How can you avoid getting measles? Measles can be prevented with the MMR vaccine, which also protects against mumps and rubella. She said several studies have debunked any connection between the measles vaccination and autism. MMR vaccine is one of the required school immunizations in Indiana.
