Measles is VERY contagious. Measles spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is so contagious that if one person has it, 9 out of 10 people around him or her will also become infected if they are not protected.
Most individuals have been vaccinated routinely in childhood (MMR, Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccine) and are not at high risk. Most people born before 1957 have had measles, and have immunity.
