Measles Epidemic On The Upserge in Iowa The measles epidemic in Iowa is on the upsurge after a brief decline in March. Commissioner of Public Health Norman L. Pawlewski announced today. In the first three months of 1975 more than 300 cases of measles were reported in the state of Iowa as compared with less tlian half that number reported for the entire 12 months of 1974. At this time, last year, only seven cases of measles had been reported to the Iowa State Department of Health. Measles epidemics have been reported in Floyd, Black Hawk, Mitchell, Howard, Polk, Pottawattamie, Warren and Greene counties and health officials fear the epidemic will continue through the school year. According to Pawlewski, three groups of children should be vaccinated immediately. The first group includes those children who never have had measles or measles vaccine. The second group includes those who were given gammaglobulin along with their measles vaccine. "If it is not known whether gammaglobulin was given, children who were immunized before 1968 should be re-vaccinated," Pawlewski said. Children who were immunized before the age of one year should be re-vaccinated im- mediai ely because measles vaccine might not be effective if given at such an early age. Efforts by health officials throughout the state are under way to combat the measles problem, Pawlewski said. When a case of measles is reported in a school, a clinic is held within 48 hours to vaccinate all children in that school, as well as their brothers and sisters. Then attempts are made in every elementary school in the county to determine who needs to be immunized, and the vaccine is administered as soon as possible. Too often, however, the initial cases of measles are not reported immediately to the state health department, and the disease hits epidemic proportions before the clinics can be held. "A single case of measles in a school setting provides the potential for an epidemic, " Pawlewski said, adding that due to its communicability there has rarely been one isolated case of measles in an elementary school child. Many times the disease is transmitted prior to an individual's knowing he has measles since the contagious period for measles is usually three days before and three days after the rash appears. Pawlewski advised that children be immunized also against rubella (German measles) at this time since slightly less than half of the children in Iowa have .../. 'iceu immunized against that disease since 1970. A combined measles/rubella vaccine has been available since 1972, and parents who are not certain whet'-^r their children have received immunizations for these two diseases are urged to have them immediately vaccinated with the combined vaccine. However, if the child has received one of the vaccines already, the combined vaccine is not necessary. Efforts have been made by health officials in Iowa to eradicate these two types of measles. "Rubnola (red measles) makes the child very ill, and he usually misses two weeks of school, " Pawlewski said. "In addition, one out of every eight children contracting the disease might have some serious complications, such as encephalitis (brain damage), pneumonia, bronchitis and ear infection. Rubella, on the other hand, does not make the child so ill; however, it poses a threat of permanent damaje to an unborn child if the mother has the disease in the first few months of pregnancy. "Epidemics such as we are experiencing now can be a thing of the past if all parents would be certain that their children receive measles vaccine at 12 months of age," the health commissioner Said.
