Measles, once rare, are becoming a concern

Cases of measles are now appearing in certain pockets of the country, particularly across the northwest. It is critical to understand the virus and how to protect against it.

The symptoms of measles appear seven to 14 days after a person is infected and include high fever, cough, runny nose and watery eyes. Tiny white spots may appear inside the mouth, along with a rash on the face, neck, trunk, arms, legs and feet.

Children and adults can receive the measles vaccine at any of the three metro Oklahoma City-County Health Department locations. For more information, visit the CDC.
