UHS Health Alert:  Measles

Measles Update


From January 1 to June 6, 2019, 1022 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 28 states. This is the greatest number of cases reported in the U.S. since 1992 and since measles was declared eliminated in 2000.

The states that have reported cases to CDC are Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington.

The majority of these cases are in individuals who were not vaccinated for measles with the MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella shot.)

Individuals born after 1957 should be vaccinated.  While some may be protected with only one dose, many people in our community need two doses.

The following individuals should have 2 doses of MMR:

  • College students
  • Healthcare workers
  • International travelers

If you are not sure if you were vaccinated, or have questions regarding whether you should receive a booster dose, please contact your primary care physician as soon as possible.  Students can always call UHS for care at 513-556-2564.

The only people who should not get this vaccine are individuals who are pregnant or immune-compromised (HIV, cancer, etc.)  There is no harm in getting an extra dose of vaccine.

In the event of a case of Measles on campus, students will be required to show either proof of vaccination with 2 doses of MMR or a blood test proving immunity.  This may be true for faculty and staff as well.   We are watching recommendations closely from the CDC and other public health authorities.
