Measles is one of the most contagious viruses on Earth. Every year, unvaccinated travelers bring measles to the U.S. from other countries, putting their families and communities at risk, especially babies who are too young to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. So before you travel abroad, be sure you and all your fellow travelers over 12 months old have had your MMR vaccine.
If you have a doctor that you regularly see, talk to them about how you can protect yourself and your family from the measles.
