Measles is a very contagious infectious disease caused by the rubeola virus.
It is transmitted through sneezing, coughing, and direct contact with contaminated secretions. Since it can spread through airborne transmission, the virus can remain suspended in the air for up to two hours after the patient sneezes, or coughs. If the patient is not given immediate medical attention, he might develop serious complications.
Because measles is highly contagious and can spread quickly from person to person, the World Health Organization (WHO) strongly advocates for vaccination against measles. You may visit Urgent Care of the Palm Beaches Walk-in Clinic in Forest Hill to get your measles immunization.
