Seventeen people have been diagnosed with the contagious disease in the Vancouver area since February and two cases each were identified on Vancouver Island and in 100 Mile House, in the southern Cariboo region of B.C.

Anyone born after 1957 should have proof of at least one dose of the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine or evidence of immunity to measles. Individuals are encouraged to check with their healthcare providers to ensure vaccinations are up-to-date. Of those infected, the ages range from 8 months to 63 years.

A person in St. Mary's County was thought to have measles last month, but a lab report found it was not the infection. The MDHHS says there have been 387 cases of measles confirmed in 15 states.

One case was confirmed a year ago in Maryland, and it involved foreign travel, officials said. Symptoms usually surface seven to 14 days after a person is infected and include high fever; coughing; runny nose; tiny white spots on the inner cheeks, gums, and roof of the mouth; and finally a red, raised blotchy rash. The fever increases and can get as high as 105 degrees. It spreads down the back and trunk and then extends to the arms and hands, as well as the legs and feet.

The measles vaccine is highly effective and very safe. Because it is so easily spread, a single case is considered an outbreak. The measles virus may remain in the air for up to two hours.

Oakland County residents seeking measles immunization should contact the Oakland County Health Division at 800-848-5533.
