Public health officials are warning of a potential measles exposure last week at Midway International Airport. They made this announcement saying that an IL resident, unvaccinated and infected with Measles passed through the Midway on February 22.
IL health officials say that while most people are vaccinated and have little risk, of most concern is the number of unvaccinated people.
They're investigating what they're calling an isolated case.
"Measles is highly contagious".
Now more than ever you need to make sure your vaccinations are up to date.

"Getting vaccinated not only protects you, it protects others around you who are too young to get the vaccine or can not receive it for medical reasons".
Those infected by measles may not develop symptoms for weeks. "We urge everyone to make sure they and their family members are up-to-date on measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine and all other age-appropriate immunizations, especially if you are traveling to other countries where measles is regularly found. Getting vaccinated not only protects you, it protects others around you who are too young to get the vaccine or can not receive it for medical reasons". Some of the symptoms you would feel from the Measles are high fever, runny nose, red watery eyes, a cough and a rash.
The disease can be prevented by the MMR vaccine, which protects against three diseases. If an uninfected person comes in contact with the mucus or saliva also of the infected person, then the chances of spreading the disease are always higher.
Measles can cause serious complications, such as pneumonia and encephalitis. Four infections identified in Champaign County earlier this year were unrelated to the Chicago case, health officials said.
