Measles are a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus that is caused by direct contact with the nose or the nose Throat infections of infected persons. People develop fever first, then cough, runny nose, and watery eyes, followed by a rash.

Humans are considered protected or immune to measles if they were born before 1957, have received two doses of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine, had measles disease, or have a laboratory test that confirms immunity.

Humans are considered to be infectious from four days to four days after the onset of the rash. People who are not immune to measles and exposed have a risk of getting measles. The risk of contracting measles is low for vaccinated or immune users.

All persons who have been exposed, especially those without immunity or who are not sure if they have been vaccinated, should be aware of measles symptoms. Symptoms include fever, rash, cough, conjunctivitis or runny nose. Symptoms usually occur 10-12 days after exposure, but may already occur 7 days and 21 days after exposure.

You should contact your doctor if you develop measles symptoms.

To prevent the spread of disease, the Ministry of Health advises individuals who may have been exposed and who are in tune with measles to consult their doctor, local clinic or local emergency room before taking care of them , This will help prevent others from being exposed to the disease.

The only best way to prevent measles is vaccination. Individuals should receive two doses of MMR vaccine to be fully protected. If a person is unsure if they are immune, they should contact their doctor. Typically, the first dose of MMR vaccine should be given at the age of 12-15 months, and the second dose should be given at the age of four to six years (school age), although people may also be vaccinated later in life. 19659004] In New York, measles vaccination is required of children enrolled in schools, day-care centers and preschools. Since August 1990, students must also demonstrate immunity to measles.

Healthcare providers should report all suspected measles cases to their local health department.
