5 Facts about Measles
- The national outbreak of measles is ongoing. From January 1 to May 10, 2019, 839 cases of measles have been confirmed in 23 states. Colorado has not yet been directly impacted by this outbreak as only one case has occurred here since January.
- Most measles cases this year have occurred in unvaccinated persons and are linked to travelers who brought measles back from other countries such as Israel, Ukraine, and the Philippines.
- Teens and adults should be up-to-date on MMR vaccination. In general, everybody age 18 and older born before 1957 (who has not had measles) needs at least one dose of the vaccine.
- The best way to protect against measles is to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) shot.
- Your child needs two doses of MMR vaccine for the best protection. Generally, the first shot is at 12-15 months of age, and the second shot is between 4-6 years of age. For infants traveling aboard, it is recommended to get the MMR early at 6-11 months of age.
