Measles Cases Rise Nationwide

Dear Campus Community,


As you may be aware, there has been an increase in measles cases across the country. Measles is a highly contagious respiratory virus that can have serious complications. Symptoms include fever and a rash that begins on the head and spreads downwards to the body.


We are reaching out to you today to strongly encourage all students, faculty, and staff to ensure they are up to date with their Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations. This is the most effective way to protect ourselves and our community from a potential measles outbreak.


If you have not yet received two doses of the MMR vaccine, or if you are unsure about your vaccination status, we urge you to contact your healthcare provider to verify your vaccination status and administer the MMR vaccine if needed.


Please contact AIC Dexter Health Services with any additional questions or for assistance with scheduling a vaccine appointment. For more information, please visit


Thank you,


Kaelly Ryan, PA-CDirector of Health Services
