Measles Disease Statistics

Measles is currently a rare disease in Minnesota and in the U.S.; however, measles continues to occur commonly in other parts of the world. Measles can be brought into Minnesota by unvaccinated persons who travel to or come from countries where measles is common, and who are infectious with measles after arriving in Minnesota. Measles can spread easily to unvaccinated persons; therefore, maintaining high immunization rates is essential to preventing measles.
