Preventing the spread of measles:
The best protection against measles is the MMR vaccine that protects against measles , mumps and rubella viruses. Two doses of MMR vaccine are recommended for immunity to measles. The first dose of MMR vaccine is administered at 12 to 15 months of age. The second dose of MMR vaccine is usually given at four to six years of age. Anyone traveling abroad outside the United States must ensure that he has received a full vaccination against measles. Two doses of MMR vaccine are approximately 97 percent effective for preventing measles infection. The MMR vaccine can be obtained from your regular doctor or your local clinic. • If you do not think you have ever had a MMR or MMRV vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella and varicella / varicella), contact your doctor. • If you think you have been exposed to measles, call your doctor a healthcare provider for advice.
• If you think you have symptoms of measles or have been exposed to someone with measles, call your doctor immediately. DO NOT go out publicly, in a clinic, hospital or doctor's office before calling their staff to prevent the spread of the disease to others.
