Deschutes County health officials are closely watching a measles case in the northwest. Heather Kaisner is the Immunization Program Coordinator for Deschutes County Health. She says there are no confirmed cases of measles in Deschutes County. The two cases of measles are in Clark County which is only about a 3-4 hour car ride from Bend. "I think this is a good reminder to parents: this is close to home, and its just a car ride away. And with spring break coming up; that it's a really good reminder to parents to make sure the children have the proper MMR vaccinations to keep them healthy in case there is an exposure here in Deschutes County." She says measles is extremely rare, contagious, and sometimes deadly. She says it takes 95% of the population to be vaccinated to keep measles from coming back.
