Measles, also known as Red Measles
or Rubeola, is a serious disease caused by a virus. It
is spread very easily through the air when someone
with measles coughs or sneezes, and by direct contact
with infected nose or throat secretions.
Anyone who has been in close
contact with someone who has measles can get the
disease. The chance of getting measles is reduced if
you have been immunized against measles.
Once someone has had measles they are
considered protected for life. Most people born before
1970 likely had measles as a child and are considered
to be immune. Anyone born after 1970 that has never
had measles and has not had 2 measles vaccines is at

a person is infected with the virus. Infants and
adults are usually sicker than children and

pregnant women worry about the measles?
When measles occurs in pregnant
women, the illness is generally not any more severe than
in other women. However, measles infection during
pregnancy has an increased risk of premature labour,
miscarriage, and low birth weight infants. There is no
evidence that measles during pregnancy causes birth
