Ottawa Public Health is investigating 3 related cases of measles in unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated individuals who have not received their required measles vaccines. Having been very ill with measles when I was 5, I know how serious the virus is. Ensure your family’s vaccinations are up-to-date. Locations where exposure could have occurred are available at http://ottawa.ca/en/news/three-confirmed-cases-measles-ottawa-and-lanark-county.
If you think you may have come in contact with the virus, please call your local health unit: Ottawa Public Health (613)580-6744 or Leeds Grenville Lanark Public Health (613)345-5685.
