There are now five confirmed cases of measles in the Bay of Plenty region this month, with four other possible cases being investigated.

Measles is a contagious virus that usually starts out as a fever with a runny nose, sore throat and red eyes, but 3-5 days later a rash appears. A person can be infected with measles just by being in the same room as an infected person, even up to two hours after the infected person has left.

Everyone potentially exposed at the above sites is already outside of the 72-hour time period for an MMR vaccination to prevent infection in unvaccinated, exposed individuals. MDHHS follows Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance and does not recommend routine measles vaccinations for children less than 12 months of age unless there is a suspected measles exposure; there is thought to be an imminent measles exposure such as being in areas of known measles; or global travel planned.

High fever (may spike to over 104˚F).

The MMR vaccine is available through primary health care providers and at some local pharmacies.

Washtenaw County Health Department can provide free vaccination to individuals with Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MI insurance or who are uninsured or underinsured.
