SAMPLE GENERAL MEASLES LETTER FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS
Dear Parent:
Measles is spreading across the United States, and while Illinois has good vaccination coverage overall,
children who are not up to date with vaccines could be at increased risk. The majority of cases across
the country are in unvaccinated individuals. Measles is a very contagious respiratory disease caused by a
virus. It spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing. Measles starts with a fever, runny nose,
cough, red eyes, and sore throat, and is followed by a rash that spreads all over the body. An infected
person can spread measles to others even before developing symptoms.
The best way to protect your children is by making sure everyone receives measles-mumps-rubella
(MMR) vaccine on time. Children usually get the first dose of MMR at 12 to 15 months of age and the
second dose at 4 to 6 years of age.
To ensure the safety of all camp members,
is asking for the
following form to be completed and submitted by the first day of camp attendance.
Please note: If there is a measles case associated with our camp, unvaccinated and non-immune
individuals will be required to be excluded from camp up to 21 days after the exposure.
Please call: ___________________

Sincerely,
Name of camp leader
