Measles is a highly contagious disease. It can be serious for young children. Measles spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of the people around him or her will also become infected if they are not protected. Protect your child by making sure he or she is up to date on vaccinations. Click here to learn more about how to protect your children and the vaccine.
