OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The continuing investigation by the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) into a confirmed case of measles has revealed that travelers at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City could have been exposed to the disease.
The City of Oklahoma City Department of Airports confirms that people who were in Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City between 9:30 p.m. Thursday, March 12 and 1:30 a.m. on Friday, March 13 may also have been exposed to measles, especially those persons in the lower level of the airport, including the United Airlines baggage claim.
According to state health officials, this is the only time that an exposure was possible in the airport.
Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed is urged to review their immunization records and contact their local county health department with any additional questions.
You are protected from getting measles if you were immunized with two doses of a measles-containing vaccine after your first birthday, or born during or before 1957. Two doses of the vaccine typically provide lifelong immunity.
