If there are other updates or locations identified, they will be listed on

For these locations, there is not a list of specific people exposed, so direct outreach is not possible. Anyone at these locations during the dates and times should monitor themselves for symptoms of measles and check their vaccination status as soon as possible. Wisconsin residents can find their immunization records using the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) or call your health care provider.

Measles is a very contagious virus that spreads easily and rapidly through coughing and sneezing. Simply being in the same room with someone who has measles is enough to get infected if unvaccinated with the measles vaccine.

Measles symptoms appear 7 to 14 days after exposure to the virus, beginning with a fever, cough, runny nose, and watery eyes, followed by a rash that usually spread from the head to the rest of the body. If you develop any of these symptoms, stay home (do not go to work, school, shopping, or use public transportation) and call your doctor’s office or clinic before visiting so they can take precautions so that other patients are not exposed to the virus.

Measles can be prevented by the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) immunization. The MMR vaccine can protect you from serious illness. Most people got the measles vaccination since two doses are required for school entry. CDC considers people who received two doses of measles vaccine as children according to the U.S. vaccination schedule protected for life, and they do not ever need a booster dose.

Public Health offers free vaccines to uninsured adults and children, and children with Medical Assistance. Vaccination clinics are held in various locations and are by appointment only. Make an appointment online or call (608) 266-4821.
