MEASLES CASE: There have been 8 confirmed case of Measles in Oakland County. For more information, please click link: Oakland County Health Division. Infants 6 months through 11 months of age should receive an early dose of the MMR vaccine, but will need to repeat this vaccination at their 12 month visit. Please call our office for an appointment today.

MEASLES UPDATE - The total measles cases confirmed in Oakland County is now eight. If symptoms develop or you believe you have been exposed, please call the office for instructions. Measles is extremely contagious and it is very important that we prevent exposure to other individuals. Exposure locations are listed are regularly being updated on the Oakland County Health Department website.

The virus can live for up to two hours in the air where the infected person was present. Symptoms of
measles usually begin 7-14 days after exposure, but can appear up to 21 days after exposure and may
include:
• High fever (may spike to over 104˚F)
• Cough
• Runny nose
• Red, watery eyes (conjunctivitis)
• Tiny white spots on the inner cheeks, gums, and roof of the mouth (Koplik Spots) 2-3 days after
symptoms begin
• A rash that is red, raised, blotchy; usually starts on face, spreads to trunk, arms, and legs 3-5
days after symptoms begin

First and foremost, there is no reason to panic. One dose of the MMR vaccine is about 93% effective. If your child has received the MMR vaccine, it is very unlikely that he or she will contract Measles. A 2nd dose improves your odds of protection to 97%. With that being said, Measles is a miserable and sometimes serious disease. We have ordered additional cases of the MMR vaccine and plan to do our best to offer the MMR vaccine to everyone who needs it. Our greatest priority is administering the MMR vaccine to infants 6 months and older who have never received the MMR vaccine. The MMR vaccine does work best at 12 months so these children will need to receive an additional MMR vaccine at their 12 month visit. Children 12 months and older who have not received their 2nd MMR vaccine can receive it early, as long as 1 month has passed, and this will not need to be repeated at the 4 year well visit.
