UHS Health Alert:  Measles

This just out from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) in Atlanta:

Measles Cases in 2019

From January 1 to May 3, 2019, 764** individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 23 states. This is an increase of 60 cases from the previous week. This is the greatest number of cases reported in the U.S. since 1994 and since measles was declared eliminated in 2000.

The states that have reported cases to CDC are Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, and Washington.

The majority of these cases are in individuals who were not vaccinated for measles with the MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella shot.)

It is more important than ever to be sure that you have had 2 doses of MMR if you were born after 1956.  This includes students, faculty and staff.

If you were born between 1957 and 1989, there is a chance you received only one dose of the vaccine and may be vulnerable to measles.  If you do not have documentation of two MMR’s, we recommend you get a booster as soon as possible.  The only people who should not get this vaccine are individuals who are pregnant or immune-compromised (HIV, cancer, etc.)  There is no harm in getting an extra dose of vaccine.

If you are unsure of your immunization status, please call your primary care doctor or ask for a nurse immunization review appointment at UHS.  In the event of a case of Measles on campus, you will be required to show either proof of vaccination with 2 doses of MMR or a blood test proving immunity.  This may be true for faculty and staff as well.   We are watching recommendations closely from the CDC and other public health authorities.
