There are no measles outbreaks within the Northern Health region yet the initiative is an opportunity for unimmunized and under-immunized children to catch-up on their measles vaccinations.
A team of professionals from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Oakland County Health Division is tracking the measles outbreak, case by case.
Currently, Rockland County is under a state of emergency with 161 confirmed cases of measles.
State officials say they are working closely with health departments in Oakland and Wayne counties to identify possible locations where victims were exposed to the measles.
"We know that you need about 95 per cent of your population to be ammune to measles, to be vaccinated, [in order] to prevent spread, and we are very very close to that", she said.
Medical systems in many countries remain too weak to vaccinate enough children year after year to wall out the virus. Measles can cause serious illness requiring hospitalization. Two doses of either measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) or measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella vaccine (MMRV) is 99 percent effective at preventing measles.
According to the CDC, two doses of the vaccine are 97 percent effective against the measles, while one dose is 93 percent effective.
Measles begins with a fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes usually about 7 to 10 days after exposure but can occur up to 21 days after exposure.
While most people don't experience side effects from receiving the MMR vaccine, some may get a mild fever or redness, swelling, or pain at the injection site, Ryan said. People are considered infectious four days before to four days after the appearance of the rash. Talk to your healthcare provider to determine if immune globulin is right for you and if it is available. Within three to seven days, a red blotchy rash will appear, first on the face and then spreading to the body, arms and legs.
The virus can live for up to two hours in the air where the infected person was present. Be prepared to describe your symptoms and alert your doctor if you think you have been in contact with an infected person.
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.
