Measles symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes.

According to the World Health Organization, before the introduction of measles vaccine to the world in 1963, major epidemics occurred approximately every two to three years and measles caused an estimated 2.6 million deaths each year.

Measles is a highly contagious disease. The rash lasts for five to six days, and then fades.

Meanwhile, Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr. issued Executive Order No. 307 creating a provincial task force and technical working group for the conduct of province-wide measles / rubella and oral polio vaccine vaccination.

It's recommended that residents in Rockland County check their immunization records.

New York City's Health Department is warning of an outbreak of measles in Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish community and calling on parents to have their children vaccinated. They will still have to get a vaccine at 12-15 months of age and again at 4-6 years of age, however getting an MMR vaccine now will help give them some protection against measles. For all ages, it is important to talk to your doctor if you are going to be traveling to another country.
