The measles virus is highly contagious and can be passed by person-to-person contact or through the air. When infected persons sneeze or cough, droplets spray into the air.

For further advice, call 13 HEALTH. Health officials say the best way to stop the disease's spread is a vaccination rate in the community of 92 to 95 per cent.

Students who are unimmunized or under-immunized with respect to MMR or MMRV vaccine based on public health immunization records will receive an immunization consent package. The vaccine can work to prevent measles if it is administered within 72 hours after exposure to the virus.

While Wakefield's research was proven to be falsified, the proportion of those vaccinated against the MMR vaccine in the United Kingdom during the late 1990's and early 2000's dropped to approximately 80%.

"If unsure whether they had the vaccine they should speak to their GP about getting the MMR vaccine before travelling. We strongly encourage and support protecting beneficiaries this way".

Dr. Taylor said someone who did get two shots can still contract the disease, but it is extremely rare. Measles can cause serious illness requiring hospitalization.

The last outbreak in Tarrant County occurred in 2013 when there were 15 cases there and five in Denton County that linked back to the 1,500-member Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark where a visitor returning from an international mission attended a service and exposed church members to the disease.

People who should not get the vaccine include those who are pregnant, immune-compromised, or allergic to a component of the MMR vaccine, Ryan said.

Some parents mistakenly believe the MMR vaccine is connected to autism spectrum disorders.

High fever (may spike to over 104˚F).

Measles symptoms usually start at around 10 days after contact with an infectious person. About 1 out of every 1,000 will develop brain swelling because of infection, which may lead to brain damage.
