Measles is a highly infectious disease, and can be spread through the air.

Symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes, followed a few days later by a rash that starts on the face and spreads to the chest.

Anyone who has never had it, or who has not been fully immunized, can potentially contract it.

VCH says anyone who was infected over the weekend would manifest symptoms between Sept. 15 and Sept. 29.

Many people in B.C. are already immune to the disease because they have received two doses of the vaccine.

However, people born between 1970 and 1994, or born outside of Canada may have only been given one dose of the vaccine, and therefore may be at risk.

Vaccinations are free, and can be done at doctors offices, pharmacists or community health centres.

Infants, pregnant women, and people with compromised immune systems should not get the vaccine, and should contact VCH public health at 604-675-3900 for information on what to do if they believe they have been exposed.
