A Measles outbreak that began in the Vancouver, Wash. area in early January has led to cases and exposures in Oregon.
If you think you might have been exposed to the measles, please do not leave your home. Call your medical team as soon as possible. If you are a patient at a Virginia Garcia clinic call our Measles Hotline at (503) 214-1668.
The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get vaccinated!
If you have been vaccinated with both measles vaccines (MMR), your risk is extremely low. Even if you have only had one MMR your risk is very low.
