MEASLES
Not a Thing of the Past!

The Illinois Dept. of Public Health and the CDC have seen an increase in the cases of measles here in the U.S. McDonough County (down by Peoria), has had 2 cases, but none have been reported here in northern Illinois. Please make sure your student is up to date with two doses of their Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. The second dose is due when entering kindergarten or 4-6 years of age.

Note from the Center of Disease Control:
The Best Protection against Measles -- the MMR or MMRV Vaccine

Measles vaccine is usually given as part of a combination vaccine that provides protection against three diseases: measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). This vaccine is strongly endorsed by medical and public health experts as safe and effective.

CDC recommends that children get two doses -- the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age and the second dose before entering school at 4 through 6 years of age.

Your child's doctor may offer the MMRV vaccine, which is a combination vaccine that protects against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox). MMRV vaccine is licensed for children 12 months through 12 years old. It may be used in place of MMR vaccine if a child needs to have varicella vaccine in addition to measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines. Your child's doctor can help you decide which vaccine to use.
