MI health officials on Friday said that state has 39 confirmed cases this year, including 38 in Oakland County, near Detroit.

Doctors have confirmed another case of measles, this time on Vancouver Island. Children typically receive one dose of MMR at 12 months of age followed by one dose of MMRV starting at four years of age.

Officials also say individuals who may have been exposed at additional locations are being directly notified. "It can spread to others through coughing and sneezing", the CDC website states.

According to the CDC, two doses of the vaccine are 97 percent effective against the measles, while one dose is 93 percent effective.

"These outbreaks are linked to travelers who brought measles back from other countries such as Israel, Ukraine, and the Philippines, where large measles outbreaks are occurring", the CDC website states, adding that people should be vaccinated before traveling internationally.

For worldwide travel, infants as young as 6 months should be vaccinated against measles.

Their statement reads; "Measles is a serious illness and is highly infectious".

Since the outbreak began, approximately 2,000 people have received the MMR vaccine in Oakland County, according to Sutfin.
