Measles

  • Although measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease, it can be prevented by receiving a vaccination.
  • MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine can help prevent measles in 95-98% of people.
  • Widespread vaccination has decreased measles transmission in North America.
  • If you think you or your family are at risk of measles or need a  MMR vaccine, please talk with your provider or call (850) 892-8015 to make an appointment at DOH-Walton.
