Measles Confirmed In Kansas

KSAL StaffJune 6, 2014

State health officials have confirmed two cases of measles in northeast Kansas and say they may be connected to four cases in a nearby Missouri county.

The Kansas Department of Public Health said Friday the two measles cases were confirmed in Johnson County.

KDHE spokeswoman Aimee Rosenow says that they involve a child who was not vaccinated for measles, and an adult whose vaccination status is uncertain. She says those two people are connected.

Rosenow also said the Johnson County patients may have had contact with some of the four people in Clay County, Missouri, who were confirmed to have measles in mid-May. Those patients included an unvaccinated infant who was diagnosed with the contagious respiratory disease after the family returned from traveling abroad.
