Measles Case Confirmed at Indiana University

3/29/2013

The Indiana Department of Health confirms that a student at Indiana University in Bloomington has measles. 

That student did not attend classes while infectious and does not live on campus.  But visitors to the CVS Pharmacy at 1000 North College in Bloomington March 24th may have been exposed.  The Health Department says anyone who hasn't had two doses of the MMR vaccine or those born in 1957 or later should contact a health provider. 

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus. It is rare in the United States due to the widespread availability of the vaccine.  But visitors from other countries or U.S. citizens traveling abroad can become infected before or during travel.
