 Measles Fact Sheet



Summer Travel Poster


As of July 11th, the Coshocton County Health Department currently has confirmed 44 cases of measles in the county. Ohio has 368 cases in a nine county area.

There have been 10 hospitalizations reported; most have recovered on their own.

Measles is an acute, highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus that is easily spread.  Symptoms of the measles usually appear within 7-18 days after exposure. The disease is highly contagious and can be transmitted from four days prior to the onset of the rash to four days after the onset.   Anyone who is not immunized and gets exposed to the disease has a high likelihood of getting ill.

Immunization is the most effective way to protect yourself and your family from vaccine-preventable diseases,” said ODH Interim Director Lance Himes.  “When fully vaccinated, the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine is 99 percent effective in preventing the measles.”

The Coshocton County Health Department is offering the MMR vaccine to both children and adults. To schedule vaccination appointments for children call 622-2999. To schedule appointments for adults, call 295-7307.  “We encourage all residents to consult with their physician and get vaccinated to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus,” said Health Commissioner Bob Brems of the Coshocton County Health Department.
