Measles Fact Sheets

There has been a recent increase in measles cases in the U.S. across several states (including Illinois), largely due to cases among under- or unvaccinated persons from the U.S. and abroad. Due to the presence of measles in our region, we would like to provide you with some information to increase awareness, disease recognition and reporting, the importance of prevention through vaccination, and most importantly, to help control and prevent the spread of measles in the community.
