Measles can be dangerous, especially for small children. It is very contagious and can make children so sick they have to go to a hospital, or even die.
Symptoms include fever, runny nose, cough, rash and red eyes.
If you have these symptoms, call your doctor or Columbus Public Health at (614)-645-1474. Stay home and avoid having visitors until you see a doctor.
You can prevent measles with the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine.
