The outbreak comes after a Derby Middle School student was diagnosed with a confirmed case of the disease. There are no public exposure sites for the Wayne County case.

In the letter, Dahlman wrote there is no treatment for the highly contagious disease, and once your child shows early symptoms it is too late to intervene. In the case of measles, the exclusion period is 21 days from the date the exposure occurred.

This is already the largest number of measles cases since 2014, when a total of 667 cases were recorded, the officials say.

People who have never had a dose of the MMR vaccine should get one now, the statement said. MMR vaccine is highly effective. A single dose protects about 95 percent of children.

Dr Jim Miller, Medical Officer of Health for Toi Te Ora Public Health, says with measles now reported locally, it's most important that parents ensure their children receive their routine measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunisations on time at 15 months and four years of age.

On getting a measles vaccine before traveling out of the country: "It depends on factors such as your age and the vaccinations you've had before you can make a blanket recommendation".

If you've been exposed, the vaccine will work if given within 72 hours.

The CDC says 465 cases have been confirmed since January 1.

We can't discuss the anti-vaxx movement without scrutinizing the specious premise that the measles vaccine is, on the whole, more risky than measles itself.

Common symptoms of the measles include: High fever Cough Runny nose Red and watery eyes White spots on inner cheeks, gums and roof of the mouth A rash that is red, raised, blotchy and usually starts on the face.

"If symptoms develop, residents are urged to call their doctor or emergency room before arriving so they can take precautions to prevent exposure to other individuals", state health officials said.
