 Measles Vaccination Drive in Boston

Boston health authorities are putting their best effort in averting a potential measles outbreak, after a worker at the French consulate was diagnosed with the illness.

Vaccines have been administered to employees working in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, and officials are making sure that everybody gets the required two shots.


The most common symptoms of measles are rash, cough, fever, and runny nose. Measles  spreads via contact with droplets from the nose, mouth, or throat of an infected person. Symptoms of measles show up in about 8-12 days following exposure to the virus.
