Second Measles Case Confirmed in Unvaccinated Marion County Resident

Second Measles Case Confirmed in Unvaccinated Marion County Resident

Measles infects the respiratory system and can cause deafness, blindness and can even be fatal in some rare cases.

In the Jefferson County case, the person contracted the disease while traveling out of state, the health department said. But the 2018 cases were scattered all over the state, rather than clustered in one area like the current outbreak in Oakland County. The vaccine is also available at other times through that office and through the health division's office in Pontiac, some health providers and many pharmacies.

Symptoms of measles include a high fever, cough, runny nose, red and watery eyes, and days later a rash with flat red spots that appear on the face, starting at the hairline and spreading downward on the body. Before scientists developed the vaccine, between 3 and 4 million people caught measles and 500 died from it each year in the USA, according to the agency. No additional suspected cases are under monitoring.

With a head-to-head record of two wins apiece going into this final, there was little to separate them in the decider. Like, in Australia, I wasn't too down on myself because I feel like my game is there, my body is there.

IHA recommends calling 8-1-1 or speaking with a nurse at a local public health centre if you think you may have been exposed to measles. It's possible - but very unlikely - for a person to contract the virus after they've been vaccinated, according to the Mayo Clinic.
