IMPORTANT reminder regarding Measles (Rubeola): Public health officials urge people to avoid immediately going to a medical office
1. They are not immune AND
2. They have been exposed AND
3. They have symptoms
Instead, call a health care provider or urgent care center by telephone to create an entry plan to avoid exposing others in waiting rooms.
Getting vaccinated is a very effective way to prevent measles. People who are not immunized, or who have not received the full immunization, are at high risk of catching the disease. Now is a good time to check to see if you have been immunized. If you have not, there are several ways you can get vaccinated. Contact your insurance provider to see if the vaccine is covered at no charge. Anyone, regardless of insurance, can be vaccinated at the Public Health Department. If you are unsure of your immunity, your doctor can check with a simple blood test. Cuesta Student Health Center does not carry the vaccine or provide serology testing.
