Protection is ensured if you had the measles (anyone born before 1957 is considered protected) or have received two doses of the measles vaccines.  The Lenawee County Health Department offers measles vaccinations call 517.264.5226 option 2 to schedule an appointment.

Measles are highly contagious; it is spread through the air and by person-to-person contact.

If you have been exposed you should:
