How can measles be prevented?
The MMR vaccine is safe and effective for preventing measles infection. Most schools and licensed child-care providers require proof of vaccination or immunity to measles before entry. If you have not had measles and/or have no record of having the MMR vaccine, see your health care provider to decide if you should receive the vaccine. Two doses of vaccine normally provide lifelong immunity.

Hamilton County Health Department is currently operating on its regular clinic schedule and procedures. Please see the Immunization and Testing program page for information about clinics schedules and registration requirements.
