Richland Public Health is encouraging residents to get vaccinated with the Measles- Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine due to the recently diagnosed cases of measles in several Ohio counties, including Richland County. Richland Public Health has scheduled two new measles clinics for residents to get their vaccine.

MMR vaccine administered at these clinics, the Richland Public Health Clinic and all Neighborhood Immunization Clinics will be Free of Charge.

The first clinic is Thursday, May 8, in the Corley Room (lower level) of Richland Public Health, 555 Lexington Avenue, Mansfield, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.

The second clinic is Wednesday, May 14 at the Shelby City Hall, 43 West Main Street, Shelby from 1:30 to 6 p.m. This clinic is run in cooperation with the Shelby City Health Department. MMR vaccine is available regularly through Richland Public Health Neighborhood Immunization Clinics and the Richland Public Health Clinic, 555 Lexington Avenue, Mansfield.

To schedule a Clinic appointment call 419- 774-4700.

The Neighborhood Immunization Clinics schedule is available online at www.richlandhealth.org or by calling the hotline at 419- 774-8115 for dates, times and locations. No appointments are needed at Neighborhood Immunization Clinics.

Measles is an acute, highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus that is easily spread. Symptoms of the measles usually appear in 7-21 days after exposure. Symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, pink eye and a rash.

The disease is highly contagious and can be transmitted from four days prior to the onset of the rash to four days after the onset. Anyone who is not immunized and gets exposed to the disease has a high likelihood of getting ill, which may lead to serious consequences.

Generally, if you were born before 1957 you are considered immune.

“Adults born in 1957 or later should contact their medical provider and get vaccinated to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus,” said Martin Tremmel, Health Commissioner at Richland Public Health. “Parents should review their children’s vaccination records to assure that they are up-to- date on their MMR vaccines,” Mr. Tremmel added.

Local public health partners support the vaccine recommendations set forth by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and CDC. These recommendations include vaccination schedules for when individuals (children and adults) should receive their vaccinations.

The CDC also recommends that all travelers be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination.

Richland Public Health has an International Travel Immunization program available by appointment through the Clinic (419) 774-4700.

Information about measles and clinics is available by calling our Measles Hotline at 419-774-4553. For more information about measles, visit the Centers for Disease Control at www.cdc.gov.
