5 more cases in SE Michigan, Vaccine clinic today in Southfield

BREAKING: Dallas confirms first reported case of the measles

The Indiana State Department of Health is warning people about a confirmed case of measles in Northern Indiana.

The recent measles outbreak is getting closer to Branch County.

The reasons for the increase in measles outbreaks is due, in part, to worldwide travel and a growing number of people who are opting not to have their children vaccinated against the disease and other communicable diseases.

A special measles vaccination clinic is scheduled Saturday in Oakland County after cases continue to climb there, state health leaders said Friday, April 5. No other vaccines will be available at the clinic.

Possible exposure times were from 9 a.m.to 1 p.m.

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. The measles virus may remain in the air for up to two hours.

People who should not get the vaccine include those who are pregnant, immune-compromised, or allergic to a component of the MMR vaccine, Ryan said.

As of late March, more than 385 measles cases have been confirmed in 15 states throughout the country.

While investigating a confirmed case of measles in northern in, authorities there learned of a possible risk of exposure at the Chuy's restaurant on Harvey Road at Highway 6 in College Station. Ottawa Public Health also strongly encouraged people to ensure they are vaccinated.

"The best protection against measles is the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine", said Marcia Mansaray, senior epidemiologist with the Ottawa County Department of Public Health. The fever can get as high as 105 degrees.

Measles is a highly contagious disease that is spread through the air when a person with measles coughs or sneezes. In addition, immune globulin (Ig) treatment is effective within six days of exposure for high-risk individuals.

In a day to four days, a red rash normally appears on the face and spreads across the body.

If symptoms develop, residents are urged to call their doctor or emergency room before arriving so they can take precautions to prevent exposure to other individuals.
