Measles is a highly contagious disease. It can be serious for young children. Protect your child by making sure he or she is up to date on vaccinations, including before traveling abroad.
Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent measles – the most deadly of all childhood rash/fever illnesses. Cases of the disease in the U.S. are at a 15-year high and have the potential to continue their spread as the disease spreads very easily. That’s why it is important to protect yourself and your family against infection.
